Pre-Entries are accepted through our online entry system ONLY. Please click the "Enter" tab above. While there are NO late fees, we strongly encourage you to pre-enter to guarantee splits. You will pay for your entries in cash when you arrive.
Entries open on August 10th at 10am MST and close Thursday, September 7th at 10:00am MST. This doesn't mean you have to pre-enter, but we strongly encourage it. Entries will be taken on site with NO LATE FEE but splits will not be guaranteed for late entries.
Plan on paying with CASH when you check in with the office. Stalls and hookups must be paid for when you reserve them.
We will do our best to have the draws ready by September 13th. Please be patient. We will be processing a massive amount of data.
Absolutely. Stalls and hookups are available at The Ranch in Loveland and must be reserved here on our website. They are limited, so we recommend reserving as soon as you can. Stalls are $30 and hookups are $35 per night. The Ranch requires that you purchase at least 1 bag of shavings per stall. Shavings are $10/bag. There are no outside shavings allowed. You must buy at least 1 bag of shavings per stall.
Stalls and hookups will go on sale August 10th at 10am MST. You will reserve them here at www.jodymotleymemorial.com under the "Plan Your Stay" tab. We absolutely will not take any requests via e-mail, text, messenger, owl, pony express, snail mail, etc... If you would like to be near someone else, try to reserve your stalls at the same time.
No, the Ranch does not allow tie-outs or building your own pens. Their stalls (and facility) are beautiful!
No. When you reserve stalls and/or hookups, payment is due immediately. From that point, they are your stalls. We will not handle a waitlist or selling of stalls. If you decide you don't need your stalls or hookup, you will be responsible for selling them to someone else. There are NO refunds.
We have created a Contestants Facebook group for contestants to use exactly for this purpose! It is an unmonitored group. We will not be assisting stall & RV hookup sales.
Please make sure to edit your entry and mark it as a turnout.

You can text the Jody Motley Memorial at (970) 721-9899. If you send me communication any other way, I just won't respond. This is not to be rude, it just helps us to consolidate all of the communications. We will also be using this system to text you when draws and results are available here on our website. We will try our hardest to respond to you in a timely fashion.
Open is a 4D on 1/2 second splits.
Novice Horse is a 4D on 1/2 second splits.

Senior is a straight pay with under 10 entries, a D with over 10.
Yes. You can roll from the Novice Horse/Youth/Pee Wee to the Open. You can only roll TO the Open, not FROM the Open. This simplifies results and allows us to get all the averages calculated much quicker. You cannot roll from day to day.
Pee Wee is 8 & under. Youth is 18 & Under. Novice Horses must NOT have won more than $2,500 in cumulative cash or prizes in their barrel racing career.
The pee wees ALL get prizes every day along with a payout. The pee wees also get the same quality buckle all the other classes get. It has been this way for many years and I believe we have given the best Pee Wee awards around for many years!
