Rider and competitor Jackie Ganter filmed a very special video which highlights the evocative soundtrack of barrel racing.
There’s something magical about the sounds of horses. The creak of leather, the flick of a brush’s bristles against a horse’s coat, the thundering sounds of hoofbeats as they resonate throughout the arena. Each equestrian discipline has its own unique soundtrack, when you think about it.
Meet Jackie Ganter, up-and-coming barrel racing star. Ganter let us into her world through the filming of this video with Red Bull. Take a look at Ganter as she does what she does best – fly around the barrels with some serious horsepower.

Ganter is no stranger to barrel racing. As a child in Abilene, Texas, she accompanied her mother, Angela Ganter, also a barrel racer, to rodeos all over the country. Ganter was bitten by the barrel racing bug at a young age, and even graduated high school early so that she could compete in the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA).
In 2015, she won the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association Rookie of the Year award. She’s one of the youngest riders to ever win the award. As a professional barrel racer today, the Texas cowgirl estimates she competes in more than 100 rodeos a year.
Ganter demonstrates the dedication and never-give-up spirit that barrel racers are known for. She has a need for speed and is a skilled rider; we wish the young star the best in her career.
