Dakota Eldridge knows what it means to be a champion. He also knows the commitment it takes to get there. The Elko, Nevada cowboy is young, fit and an inspiring example of living life the cowboy way. Raised on horseback, Dakota’s humble and dedicated approach to the world of professional rodeo has not only won him the title of Wrangler National Finals Rodeo Average Champion, but it has won him the hearts of rodeo fans everywhere. He’s the kind of guy you want to root for.
Above all, Dakota is a horseman. Constantly concerned for his horses’ well-being, he’s quick to put the needs of Tiger and Rusty, well before his own. Rusty, of course, is Dakota’s famous steer wrestling mount that has taken the likes of Dakota and fellow steer wrestler, Luke Branquinho, to victory at the National Finals Rodeo and on the circuit throughout the year. Tiger has joined Dakota as his new lead mount after being discovered by his late mother-in-law, revered horsewoman Sally Marvel Freeman. Tiger’s talents in the arena and his special tie to Sally have made him a fast mainstay in Dakota’s program.
"For me, choosing Platinum was simple. I know what nutrition does for both my horses and myself as athletes. Platinum has been a huge contributor to my horses’ performance and my career. Keeping them healthy, looking after their joints and paying attention to the gut are major factors in my horses’ longevity."
