On a barrel pattern, how much of a time difference does 10 feet make?

Good question. Better yet, assuming a turn that is 3' from a barrel, what is the total length on a standard pattern?

  The pattern I was wondering about was 5 ft difference on the score, so 10 ft total difference.

Only experience I can add is we sometimes have standard patterns with 40' score instead of 60'. The horses usually run about a full second faster on the shorter score so thats 40' feet SHORTER than standard ( 20' coming and going)SO 10' I would PREDICT to be about a 10th or 2.

From what I can find via google a horse averages 25-30 mph at the gallop with a record of 55mph.

If a horse averages 30 mph on the run in and run home that would put him traveling at 44' per second. that would mean 11 feet would be 1/4 of a second on to your time.

I was told once that each stride is a 10th......not sure how much truth there is to that.

Well that cannot be.

I have gotten in to the habit of counting strides at the NFR from the time the come in to the arena to when they exit and most do it in I think 36-37 strides. That would make it a 3.7 second run....

I am pretty sure they meant that on a straight away run. A stride around a barrel is going to be much slower then a stride running in or home. that being said its not a super accurate way to measure as my little mares strides are no where close to being able to cover the ground that a big old beast can. she would take 2 to most horses 1.
