Kindersley bull rider Dakota Buttar was in the news just last week after he competed as a member of Team Canada at the Professional Bull Riders Global Cup's third leg in Arlington, Texas.

It wasn't a hugely successful weekend for Buttar and his teammates as the Canadians finished in last place during the latest installment of the five-nation tournament. But at his latest event, Dakota was able to get back on the right track at an event this past weekend.

The 26-year-old was one of 40 bull riders at the PBR Iron Cowboy event hosted at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California on Friday and Saturday. Despite not being at 100 per cent health due to pneumonia, he was able to pick up 10th place at the tournament.

During his round one ride, Buttar managed to hang on for 80.25 points to secure a solid start at the event.



Then on his second go, the west central local brought the sold-out crowd to its feet on his way to an even better 85.5 points. And after his incredible ride, he was greeted by a pretty well-known star at the gate.



Buttar came up short of completing the trifecta after getting bucked off on his third try at 6.72 seconds. Nonetheless, it was a great return for the Kindersley rider who earned himself $1,850 and 40 world points. He improved in the world standings as well, jumping from 38th to 33rd.
