Happy Holidays!



As the 2018 year comes to a close, I want to THANK UBRA directors, members, producers, sponsors and their families for their support! 2018 has been our largest year to date and would not be possible with out their support.

This year has been a trying one for certain. With the growth, has come some growing pains…we adjusted the points to track by member # vs. member name since we have multiple members with the same names…the new horse incentives by horses has certainly been a learning curve! I (Jessica Beauvais) will be working diligently to make sure that points are tracking as they should. Champions will not be crowned until I have double checked. JJ Web Services is working on database updates as well as making sure everything is working as it should.  Chad ( has done a great job of rustling through the mess and I can’t thank him enough!

As I was going through my notes, I can’t help but be THANKFUL for each of you that has supported the UBRA along the way! We’ve had a great group of directors including Elaine Hagen – that has been with me in this journey for over 10 years! In 2019, Kim Chesmore will be hitting the 10 year mark as well!

There have been days I’m not sure to cry, scream or just throw my hands in the air….at times like that, I’m reminded of all the amazing people I have met, the kind words and gestures. I am proud to announce that WE have awarded over $2 MILLION in ca$h and prizes since I took over in 2006! (meaning values ONLY UBRA the has awarded, not including all of our great producers) This year we have 1,160 different memberships, awarded over $165,000 at the UBRA World and JJ Classic and are looking at awarding another $65,000 in 2018 year end awards!

I say “WE” because; although it’s just my in my little home office, it takes an army. This is the “UNITED” Barrel Racing Association.  The purpose of the UBRA is to work together to promote family, friendly barrel racing.

  1. joined together politically, for a common purpose, or by common feelings.

Wishing all of our UBRA family and friends a very Merry Christmas and blessings throughout the new year!
