ACHA CONGRATULATES:  DAKOTA WEST

Dakota West started riding when he was 3 years old. It all began at play days, where he participated in the usual events such as barrels and poles. When Dakota’s older brother started showing cutting horses, Dakota said he wanted to go cut with bubba and stop these girly events. At age 7 he started showing a cutting horse that Jim Ross, better known as “Papa”, trained. In 2017, Dakota walked away with the Reserve Jr Youth World Champion title. He was also voted Most Improved Youth by his peers. Dakota and his horse Meradas Lil Boon aka Rio qualified to compete in the Junior Youth and the McDonald’s Shootout at the 2018 ACHA Championship Show. Cletus Hulling helps with keeping the horses going and giving Dakota all the pointers he needs to succeed in the cutting pen.
In his spare time, Dakota enjoys playing little league and loves playing with his dog. Football is his favorite sport, but he isn’t old enough to play just yet. When he grows up, he wants to be a State Trooper just like his dad.
Dakota’s favorite place to show is Fort Worth and he always seem to do extremely well there. When asked what his greatest accomplishment is, he said it is any time he can beat his brother! The best score he’s ever gotten was a 73 at the ACHA Show in Brenham, Texas.
