Our History

Diamonds & Dirt Barrel Horse Classic is entering its 6th year, having aligned itself with the nation’s premier barrel horse events. As of 2016, DDBHC offers the 3rd largest cash and prize packages in related competitions.

In its first year, DDBHC was established to serve as a major fundraising platform for the non-profit, K9s4Cops. K9s4Cops addresses the need for funding the purchase of K9s for law enforcement agencies around the world.

Diamond & Dirt’s efforts have evolved to include charities local to Brazos Valley along with the newest addition, the Spirit of Texas Fair.

The Spirit of Texas Fair will provide entertainment for families of the entire Brazos Valley, our barrel horse families, as well as families from across Texas. From setting world records to offering live musical entertainment to educational opportunities for adults and children alike, the Spirit of Texas Fair will have something for everyone!
