I have a horse that qualifies for barrel futurities its something that I have not done in the past with previous horses I am wondering what the benefit of it is and if I could get input and info from anyone about them I have very little knowledge about it.

Futurities tend to make sure their ground is really, really good. This helps build a horses confidence. The champions are decided on an average of 2 or 3 run so this encourages trainers working to be able to have more than one good run (like a rodeo or jackpot). Consistency pays.
It's a friendly atmosphere where everyone is on a level playing field running horses of the same age.
