Letter from OBRA President Adam Harrison

Welcome to the OBRA, Ontario’s Premier Barrel Racing Association. We pride ourselves in producing barrel races that are safe & family orientated. I would like to thank everyone who supported me with phone calls and messages to become the 2014 OBRA President.

This is a great honour and to follow Dave Clingen and James Wilson won’t be an easy task. I promise to maintain the caliber of shows that Dave and James laid out.

With the great sponsors we have had for the past 5+ years and the new sponsors coming on board I can only see the OBRA continuing to grow. The elected executive this year consists of old and new which I think is great to move forward. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions please feel free to contact myself or any of the executive.

Here’s to a great season of barrel racing in 2014. 

Your 2014 OBRA President,

Adam Harrison

General OBRA Sponsors

Ontario Quarter Horse Racing

The Quarter Horse Racing program in Ontario has backed the OBRA and several other barrel racing organizations in Ontario for a number of years now. Not only do they support us but also the great bloodlines being produced in Ontario are going on to prove themselves with a second career in barrel racing.

For any horse enthusiasts who would like to watch these horses fly, plan a day at Ajax or Ft. Erie and guaranteed you will love it. There are also seminars for those interested in being more involved in Quarter horse racing.

Jim Wilson Chevrolet Buick GMC

In addition to being an avid fan, Jim Wilson has been a long time supporter of the OBRA!

This is the place to go for a new or used vehicle. It is worth the drive to Orillia to see their great inventory, enjoy great service and be guaranteed a great price. Jim also lends further support when any OBRA member purchases a vehicle.

Scott and Lisa Gray

OBRA youth have enjoyed some of the best youth payouts anywhere as a result of Scott’s support and sponsorship. This is nothing new to Scott and Lisa as they have poured countless hours and finances to encourage youth in barrel racing, rodeo and other western horse sports.

Southwestern Fields

Sue Collier and Adam Harrison have sponsored all the OBRA hosted events by supplying equipment and expertise to ensure the arena ground is the best it can possibly be! As all show hosts know, the work that goes into arena prep is overwhelming and Adam’s handling of this has been a huge benefit to OBRA hosted shows.
