History Barrel racing started as a woman’s event. Not much is known about the exact dates and whereabouts of the start of barrel racing. It is thought that barrel racing first saw the competitive light in the state of Texas. The Girls Rodeo Association (GRA), started in 1949, was the first body of rodeo specifically for women. In 1981 the GRA became the Women's Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA). Joey Bonker
