PERRY, GA-- The field was narrowed down to 338 of the best youth and teen barrel racers in the world at the NBHA Youth World Championships on Saturday.
Each finalist had one run at the Georgia National Fairgrounds.
"The hardest part would probably be at a big show like this not being so nervous, just trying to concentrate," explained Ashburn, Georgia native Dallas Wiggins. "My parents have always done it and I've been riding since, a little after I could walk. I started out with a pony and then I moved up to a regular sized horse and it's really enjoyable."
A total of 10 champions were crowned: five from the youth division and five from the teen division.
Brian Wheeler of Hattiesburg, MS had the fastest time in the teen division at 14.83 seconds. Bayli Hayes of Philadelphia, TN had the fastest youth division time of 14.815 seconds.
