Who is Dale Brisby?

If you saw the reaction to Dale's cameo on social media last night but have no idea who Dale is, you're not alone. For those out of the loop, though, Dale is a YouTuber and bull rider who posts about bull riding on YouTube and his other social media channels. He also appeared in the 2021 Netflix series How to be a Cowboy alongside fellow bull rider J.B. Mauney.

Dale has earned a fairly substantial following through his social media presence, and he seems like a fitting minor addition to the world of Yellowstone. After all, the series is set against the backdrop of the agrarian west, and features a cast of characters who spend much of the show defending their way of life against a variety of outsiders. Dale may not have much acting experience, but his cameo likely delighted those who knew who he was.
