Bruce Krabbenhoft and Courtney Pilkey are off to compete in Georgia at the National Barrel Horse Association world championships.

The duo has been practicing together for the last few years. Pilkey started barrel racing about four years ago with Krabbenhoft. He has been barrel racing since 1998.


"I've been riding horse my whole life," Pilkey said.

She likes the speed of barrel racing, a reason she started competing in that sport.
