Bringing All the Bling to the Diamonds & Dirt Barrel Horse Classic


(Bryan, Tx.) - Equine Motorcoach™ and Equine Carriage™ ST is on display at the Diamonds & Direct Barrel Horse Classic (DDBHC) at the Brazos County Expo Center in Bryan, Texas. The $100,000 DDBHC is BBR approved and has scheduled Open 5D, Youth, Amateur, Derby and Futurity competition provides as an opportunity to win one of the largest purses in United States.

The event is one of the richest barrel race events in the United States with riders from 25 states and all parts of Texas. This 5-day barrel horse classic guarantees over $450,000 in payouts and prizes and an amazing lineup of special events and performances.

Why Diamonds & Dirt? Why Now?

Founder Kristi Schiller of Schiller Ranch, located southeast of Expo in nearby Millican, puts it this way, "Despite today's economic challenges, interest and participation in barrel racing continues to thrive. I believe barrel racing is on the verge of becoming a world-class sport of its own. The time is right for taping a larger audience as well as providing an outstanding new venue for the loyal riders who have dedicated themselves to barrel racing over the years. With the phenomenal bloodlines and speed of these horses, combined with the agility of talented riders and trainers, I believe history will be made every year at Diamonds and Dirt. We at Schiller Ranch are committed to making this a truly premier event. The service and hospitality experienced by each participant will be second to none, and our payouts, always top-tier. At Diamonds and Dirt, we're bringing the bling back to Texas where it all began."
