The main key is to press shutter at the particular time. Do not be dependent on holding just the shutter button and repeatedly clicking many frames. Most of the times actions are so fast that the auto shutter button held down and you are not able to click the moment and finally you miss the shot. So let's see few tips to avoid this problem.

Do not have the hopes of setting the photograph of first barrel if you are with the professional riders in the barrel race, although it is not always the good chance to click good photographs.

So the best barrel has been the second one. Normally most of the horses take second barrel. Here you can show the photo of the rider and the horse during a turn and coming out of the turn and the rider proceeding to the next barrel.

Third barrel is the barrel where you get good and amazing shots. As horse is actually digging to get around, the dirt is in the air, most of the times rider's foot is really touching the ground depending upon the turn, horse takes. Moreover the run home is also a good place to take some amazing action photographs.
