Arcadia, CA, May 23 -- HRTV (R), The Network for Horse Sports, will continue to expand its scope of covering prime equestrian events when it premieres a comprehensive show from the annual Diamonds & Dirt Barrel Horse Classic, presented by Schiller Ranch, from Bryan, TX, on Sunday, May 26 at 10 p.m. ET.

Billed as "Bringing the Bling Back to Texas," the event took place in mid-March and has quickly established itself as one of the largest purses in Barrel Racing.

The prestigious Diamonds & Dirt event took place at the Bryan County Expo Complex Barn, and offered a total purse of $450,000, including $110,000 in prize money, to attract the champions of Barrel Racing.  During the five-day Classic, HRTV.com offered viewers daily highlights of the best rider/horse Futurity combination the "5D" Open competition, the Futurity Finals, the 5 best Finals' rides, and clips of the "sweepstakes" event, to equestrian fans.

Sunday's one-hour highlight show will showcase the best performance from the outstanding event, which featured intense competition before large crowds at the Expo Complex. Noted top Barrel racer and trainer, LaTricia Duke, hosted the show. Duke is an exclusive member of the Million Dollar Cowgirls, an APHA world champion and also a back-toback Futurity champion at the San Antonio Rodeo.
 

Among the top performers that appear on the show are: Vauna Walker, Jackie Jatzlau, Kassie Mowry, Ivy Conrado, Jolene Montgomery, and many more.  Of particular note will be the remarkable performance of 9-year-old Regan Henning, who competed in the Futurity Finals.
 

Sanctioned by the Women's Professional Rodeo Association and the Better Barrel Racers, the Diamonds & Dirt Barrel Racing Classic is a premier event for western horse sport fans worldwide, but also acknowledged by the most prestigous associations in the sport.

Horse fans may see show highlights on HRTV, and also at www.HRTV.com, where additional short features are also available.

Barrel racing is a rodeo event in which a horse and rider attempt to complete a clover-leaf patern around pre-set barrels in the fastest time. It combines the horse's athletic ability and the horsemanship skills of a rider in order to safely and successfully maneuver a horse through a clover leaf pattern around three barrels placed in a triangle in the center of an arena.
