Dave Eastlake was born in Pennsylvania and was raised in Arizona. At an early age he was enthralled with rodeo.
He got his first horse as an eighth-grade graduation gift from his Dad and hasn’t been without one since.
Dave graduated from Arizona State University with an agricultural degree. His first taste of winning came at the age of 12 in ribbon roping, with Dave as the runner.
Dave rode broncs and bulls in the Junior Rodeos throughout college. After graduating, roping became a part of his every-day life.
