Arcadia, CA, March 12 -- HRTV (R), The Network for Horse Sports, will continue to expand its scope of covering prime equestrian events when it offers exclusive and free HD updates and highlights, via www.hrtv.com <http://www.hrtv.com/> , of the annual Diamonds & Dirt Barrel Horse Classic from Bryan, TX, beginning on Thursday, March 14 and continuing through Tuesday, March 19.

Billed as "Bringing the Bling Back to Texas," this event, which runs from March 12-17, is in its second year and already features one of the largest purses in Barrel Racing.

The prestigious Diamonds & Dirt event which takes place at the Bryan County Expo Complex Barn, offers a total purse of $450,000, including $110,000 in prize money, to attract the champions of Barrel Racing.  Viewers can watch award-winners, including: Cody Bauserman, Troy Crumrine, LaTricia Duke, Bo Hill, Angie Meadors, Jolene Stewart Montgomery, Kassie Mowry, Pete Owen and two-time NFR World Champion Brittany Pozzi.

HRTV.com's updates and highlights of the events will begin on March 14 in a recap format. Throughout the Diamonds & Dirt Barrel Horse Classic, HRTV.com will offer 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.

"We are both delighted and proud to bring coverage of this prestigious equestrian event to our viewers," said Scott Daruty, President of HRTV.  "In offering Barrel Racing, the network is reaching yet another passionate and dedicated audience of competitors and fans, and its carriage on HRTV.com presents this sport to our worldwide audience online."

“We are beyond thrilled with this cutting-edge joint venture,” says Kristi Schiller, who founded Diamonds & Dirt in 2011. “HRTV was the perfect fit for us. This is a world-class event, and we love that so many millions of viewers on HRTV in the US and worldwide at HRTV.com will now get to experience it along with us.”

A full hour-long highlights program of the Diamonds and Dirt Barrel Futurity Finals will premiere on HRTV's TV channel in April. The Futurity, with horses foaled 2008 or later that have not competed in any type of barrel race competition prior to December 1, 2012, is an exciting event that offers excitement and unpredictability.

Sanctioned by the Women's Professional Rodeo Association and the Better Barrel Racers, the Diamonds & Dirt Barrel Racing Classic not only has the full attention of horse sport fans worldwide, but also acknowledgment from the most prestigious associations in the sport.

Barrel racing is a rodeo event in which a horse and rider attempt to complete a clover-leaf pattern 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 (typically three 55-gallon metal or plastic drums) placed in a triangle in the center of an arena.
