Personal Information
For the second consecutive year, Ethan received the Rod Glass Memorial Award symbolic of the WPCA’s Most Improved Outrider. As well for the second consecutive year, Ethan began the 2018 season with a bang as he swept of both the Ralph Vigen Memorial Award and the championship final heat at the Grande Prairie Stompede this time with driver Evan Salmond. He improved 5 spots from 2017 to finish out the year in 5th place in the World Standings. Ethan was the WPCA Top Rookie Outrider in 2016, and rode his first taste of outriding came at the demonstration race at the Battle of the Rockies in 2015 at just 14 years old. Proving he was ready to begin his chuckwagon career, Ethan made his first official ride behind his father Obrey Motowylo at the 2016 Grande Prairie Stompede. Ethan credits 5-time World Champion outrider Chanse Vigen as being the most helpful and influential over his budding career so far. A former wild pony racer, Ethan's off season hobbies include hockey, basketball, and team roping. A high school student, Ethan is single, and makes his home in Blufton, Alberta.
