Dale qualified many times for the Mountain States Circuit Finals and served as Circuit Manager for three years. In 1983, Dale joined the NSPRA.
Competing in calf roping, ribbon roping, team roping, and steer wrestling, Dale has qualified for the Senior National Finals Rodeo in all events every year.
With limited hauling, Dale earned two Reserve World Champion Calf Roper titles. Not a man to “go along for the ride”, he served on the NSPRA Board of Directors for 10 years and as President from 1997-1999.
Dale met his wife, Jody, at a Little Britches rodeo, and throughout the years, they have shared their love of rodeo with each other as well as with their two children, Josh and Laura. Without doubt, Dale Motley has achieved his goal to be a “good cowboy”!
And in his quest to be a good cowboy, he lived admirably—as a husband, father, firefighter, friend, leader, and cowboy!
