Is that normal for barrel racing? I feel like I've seen horses tip the barrels over when competing. Now I'm just curious!

Me too!--I would think that cement would hurt like crazy if you hit it! Are the heavy barrels for training purposes? I guess they would be a great incentive to not hit a barrel LOL!
Hope your horse heals ok--it really does depend on the horse and the specific injury. I would say get as much veterinary advice as you can, and then bring him back very, very carefully, any sign of stress, back off. Many horses come back after injuries. Like BostonBanker, I had a horse with a suspensory ligament injury--a hind leg. which is more rare and difficult to treat--at least it was 19 years ago--I rested her a year, brought her back slowly and she was ok for about 6 months--then she cast herself in her stall and apparently reinjured it--she was never really right after that. My friend had a horse with a small front suspendory tear and he was fine in 3 months--it really just depends.
I don't have any real experience with fractures, but know horses are capable of amazing comebacks. Just keep in mind that that barrel racing not only has the stress of high speed, but there is a lot of stress on those legs wrapping around a barrel-- I would just be really really cautious and give him lots of time to heal and recondition. I really hope he gets better soon and stays healthy and sound. I'll be rooting for you!
