Dallas grew up on a ranch in Wausa, NE, where his family raised horses and cattle.  He first started trainign others' horses at the age of 12. It was just for the neighbors but throughout high school it grew more into a business. Training horses and rodeo consumed every second of his time after that. He set off for college in Rapid City on a rodeo scholarship, and during one of his many rodeo travels he met his wife Chelsie. After he made the College Rodeo Finals, Rapid City cut the rodeo team and Dallas transferred to South Dakota State University (SDSU) to complete his education and join their rodeo team. It was at SDSU that he met one of the McCutcheon brothers. Through this connection Dallas was able to train under Jim McCutcheon out of Valley View, TX.  After working for Jim he graduated from SDSU with a B.S. in Animal Science and a minor in Equine Science. Dallas started training horses full time after graduation and in just a short time, he has trained multiple World Show qualifiers and NRHA money earners.

Dallas' lesson program is effective. Improvement is made every time a customer walks out of the barn. He listens to the client while they explain their view and he helps point out strengths, weakness, and work on what is needed. There are no secrets to his program. He educates the client leaving them confident in their maneuvers, i the show pen and in themselves. No matter the discipline he believes that you have to be educated enough to make decisions, corrections, and advancements on your own. That's what makes you stand out in the show pen.

It is the goal at Dallas Cunningham Performance Horses to develop the mindset of a good cow horse and reining prospect.


Limiting the number of horses taken into his training program allows Dallas to be 110% committed to his clients and their horses. He understands the importance of building trust and relationships with clients, and the same goes for the horses. His program is built around the customer and geared towards the horse. This helps each horse reach its maximum potential and the client's goals. So if you're ready to join a program that gets results, contact him today.
