Then and Now: Dakota Eldridge

Six-time Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifier Dakota Eldridge is gearing up to compete in the 90th annual Woodward Elks ProRodeo slack tomorrow morning. He is currently ranked 3rd in the PRCA steer wrestling world standings.

Eldridge grew up on the back of a good horse and certainly came by his love for rodeo honestly. His father taught him how to ride and steer wrestle, while his grandfather was an avid rodeo fan. Check out the photo gallery above to see photos from his early childhood, as well as a “then and now” of the lifelong cowboy, thanks to some Photoshop magic.
