Meet Kendall and Kenzie Gentry, teen-age sisters from Henderson County who have won countless horse barrel racing titles.

In barrel racing, a rider takes a horse at full speed into a 180-degree turn around each of three barrels laid out in a clover-leaf pattern, striving for the fastest time. Don't look away when you're watching this event—winning times are about 13 seconds.

Kendall and Kenzie began competing and winning as very young girls. They trained their own horses, and are completely responsible for their care. They have also competed—and won—in the rodeo events of pole-bending and goat-tying, but barrel racing is what they enjoy the most.

You can appreciate their talents all the more when you can see it close-up from the horse's point of view. This segment features some exciting perspectives from cameras mounted on horseback—and on the barrels.
