Timing Systems for Western Riding Events

If you have recently attended a barrel race, rodeo, roping, team penning, ranch sorting or cutting, there's a good chance that one of our timing systems was in use. All of our systems offer the convenience of wireless operation. With no cables to run to the electric eyes and no power connections to the timing console or the electric eyes, system set-up and tear down is quick and easy.

Laser Stakes Arena

Laser Stakes

Instead of marking barrel, pole and electric eye positions with stakes driven into the ground, Laser Stakes mount in the ceiling of your arena to mark positions with a beam of light. With no stakes in the ground to avoid, arena drags are much quicker and more effective.
