Barrel jumping is all about jumping over barrels - on ice skates. The athlete tries to leap over a batch of barrels, side by side by side on the ice.
Barrel jumping exist where there is an ice rink and anyone brave enough to attempt to jump a barrel at speed.
Long jumping on ice skates appears to have been an informal sport in the 19th century among the Dutch. It may have grown out of obstacle races, in which speed skaters had to jump over fences, walls, and man-made barriers.
