Just wanted to say that we FINALLY were able to make one of your races and found out what the hype was all about. What a beautiful place you have, very organized and well run. And you must sprinkle magic in the cute little porta potty because there was no smell!! Love the “pit passes” and all the cute little touches your family has created to make THE PIT such a cool place to be. Blessings on your new adventures!

I just wanted to say "thank you" for giving so much to the barrel community. It's sad to hear you're leaving, but know that you left an extremely positive impact here. Your races are the best, and I love your announcers!

-Emily Guetzko

Angela, thank you to you, your family and the entire crew for putting on such a great race today. We love your arena and the ground, but more than anything I truly love how you keep Jesus at the center and honor Him. Your prayer today was so heartfelt and genuine and the presence of God is there. You make people feel special and you're kind and patient and do so much to bless the contestants. I am going to miss these days - your family and the events that have been held at your home. Thank you for all you have given and for your heart for people. May God continue to bless your family and open doors of opportunity and doors for powerful Godly influence. You are all amazing!!!

-In Him and with His love, Kelly


We want to thank you for working so hard to put on AMAZING barrel races(with beautiful arena and ground- and grounds)! I came with my three daughters and a friend, and seven horses!

We had a great time, you have a gift of hospitality for sure!!

We came just over two hours and wish we had come to the other ones! Thank you!

-Amy Neumann 


What a fun place to be! You have created a wonderful event! We left feeling uplifted and happy... not because of the runs, because you shared that feeling at your barrel race! Thank you for sharing your positive vibe!💕

-Tangi Schaapveld


We had a great Friday night at The Pit Arena barrel racing and hanging out by the bonfire.  So thankful for our horse community being the only thing that isn’t part of a whacked out “new normal.”  We kicked it off by remembering 9/11 with a moment of silence, stood for the flag & dedicated the night to our police officers, firemen and first responders. Yes it was a bit soggy with some light rain but Lenna and Betty sure didn’t mind.



This is an incredible place to run.  Thank you for sharing.

-Roxann McCain


The Kleins are doing a great job, lots of parking,  easy to enter,  text msgs your draw,  beautiful set up,  will be back !!

-Lori Messenbrink


The whole Pit Crew is fantastic!  Thank you for opening up your facility and home to others.  Thank you for providing a good Christian/family atmosphere......feeling blessed tonight as I reflect on how hard the Klein family and crew works.....and how they go above and beyond to show kindness to others.

-Kari DesMarais

We love running at the PIT ARENA! Patriots abound, recognizing the first responders/ super heroes. Beautiful facility,  and an air of community, faith, family and doing the right thing. The weather was less then cooperative, but we made the best of it and had a ģreat time. Running toward the end of the night and in the rain, Olivia Pemberton took  home some nice checks on Wrangling Fame  and Bitsy Bullion placing in 2nd & 3rd in the 2D respectively and 9th and 10th overall,out of 177 horses. Royal had a great time as usual with Jet Bandito and her amazing mama showing her love, commitment and athleticism! Love my barrel racing community! Thank you Jeremy Klein and Angela Klein for a wonderful series! #summitjointperformance
