Maritime Barrel Racing Association

Racing around the Maritimes since 1990


Our Objective

The MBRA is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting western speed events, particularly barrel racing, throughout the Maritimes.

We seek to improve the skill & ability of speed event competitions by providing events with adequate prize money, by organizing clinics with expert instructors and encouraging breeding & training horses specifically for speed events.

Our History

The MBRA, First known as the Maritime Gymkhana Association, was formed in 1985 by a small group of horsemen who wished to organize and promote their sport. Since their humble start they have grown from 12 to 120+ members.
