To better support American Quarter Horses in barrel racing, a group of leading barrel racing event producers and organizations have joined forces with the American Quarter Horse Association to form the Barrel Racing Industry AllianceBRIA will create a unified presence for the sport on a national level, and the alliance will create a series of initiatives to better serve the industry.

BRIA charter members include:

  • Barrel Futurities of America

  • Future Fortunes
  • National Barrel Horse Association
  • West Coast Barrel Racing Association

The sport of barrel racing has seen significant growth over the past decade with tens of thousands of barrel racers engaged in rodeo, divisional races, futurities, stallion incentive programs and jackpot races across the country. The growth has dramatically increased demand for all levels of barrel horses both domestically and internationally.

“The unprecedented formation of this alliance will no doubt be a pivotal event in the advancement of barrel racing,” said Butch Wise, BRIA chairman, and AQHA past president. “The members of this alliance are committed to advancing the sport, and AQHA is excited to be involved with such a dynamic organization.”

Together, they will develop and implement initiatives and programs that will foster continued progress and growth for the sport of barrel racing.
