St. Jude Barrel Jam
The 9th annual St. Jude Barrel Jam was back at the Show Place Arena in Cordova, Tenn. February 25-27, 2022 for another big fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. The show offered over $11,000 in added money, plus an event auction and a stallion auction. Individual fundraisers who raised $1,000 for St. Jude earned a custom buckle. Those who raised $5,000 had an opportunity to win a saddle. The St. Jude fundraising website posted that $203,255 had been raised for St. Jude by Barrel Jam.
Multiple vendors lined the south end of the arena, and sweat shirts sporting the 2022 St. Jude Barrel Jam logo were available for sale.
Photographer and videographer Brent Puhl came down from Ohio to film the action. See more of Puhl’s Photography at: https://puhlsphotography.smugmug.com/.
The competition got underway Friday at 4 p.m. with the $2,000 added Open 5D.
Saturday’s events started with the $1,000 added Michel Otten Memorial Pole Bending at 8 a.m., followed by the $250 added Future Legends, and the main event – the $2,500 added Open 5D. Between competitions, buckles were awarded to the top fundraisers for St. Jude, as success stories from St. Jude patients were broadcast through the arena.
At 9 a.m. Sunday the Future Legends were back in the arena, and the show culminated with another $2,500 added Open 5D.

On Saturday morning, 77 young Future Legends ran the pattern, with Darcy Dement of Jackson, Tenn. riding Hel on Socks taking first in 1D (14.659). But, perhaps the cutest were the last two riders, Cinch Boane on Charlie and Emma Cupples on Racey Tracey, this year riding on her own. They might not have been the fastest, but they certainly were “show stoppers.” Emma has been a St. Jude patient, so St. Jude means everything to her family.
