About Dakota Cowboy

Dakota Cowboy showcases the stories of rural living!

Dakota Cowboy showcases the stories of rural living!  Hosted by Tisa Peek and Beni Paulson, the two share a deep passion for the agricultural lifestyle. Together, they explore the stories of rural living in our rural communities, celebrating the values of hard work and community spirit that define the heartland.
Tisa Peek is a horse trainer, rodeo athlete, and author.  Her long-time passion for the agriculture lifestyle and its values has turned into a new passion for finding the people and stories behind rural living on BEK TV.  Growing up in Berthold, ND, Tisa’s backyard playing was always on a farm.  She began learning rodeo as a kid, eventually participating in barrel racing and team roping competitions. 
Today, she and her husband and their two boys live south of Bismarck, where they own JT Family Equine.  There, they train horses, host horse camps for youth and provide riding lessons.  Stemming from their roots in Western living, Tisa and her husband also founded Dakota Horse Magazine, celebrating the gifts that horses provide and making horse and human lives better through advocacy and education.  Tisa and her family still compete in a variety of rodeos through the NDRA, MHA, and Roughrider Rodeo Association, to name a few. 
Beni Paulson is a former bull riding champion with roots running deep in the soil of North Dakota.  Hailing from Richardton, Beni developed an unwavering passion for the agricultural lifestyle from a young age. Today, he breeds and trains bucking bulls on his ranch in Richardton. 
Beni’s transition from the heart-pounding excitement of bull riding to the serene yet equally challenging world of breeding and training bucking bulls reflects his enduring commitment to the land and its traditions.
