Friday, August 30 was a huge success for the Ronald McDonald House Charity Barrel Race in Brandon with $20,315.75 collected by 122 riders. Congratulations to Autumn Kirkpatrick, daughter of Sean and Terrina, and her horse Revy, of Sinclair who raised over $1000. Autumn then raced in the Northern Lights Barrel Race on Saturday and Sunday. It is a futurity race and sale, where five or six barrel and ranch horse breeders sell colts and when the colt you purchase reaches five years of age, you return and race for a pot of money, that the breeders have paid into. Autumn bought a colt at this year’s sale.
