Rodeo is big in Wyoming. Maybe it’s the Western culture that surrounds it, the history behind it or the no-holds-barred displays of courage and expertise, but rodeo is unlike any other sport and it is also about authentic Old Western spirit, camaraderie among competitors and raw emotion in the arena. Nowhere else can you truly witness the essence of Wyoming quite like this. Rodeo is a way of life and a profession for cowboys and cowgirls, who travel across the West making their living by bronc and bull riding, calf roping and barrel racing. It’s an occupation born in the days of the Wild West, when excellent horsemanship was a necessity on the ranch, as it still is in many places in Wyoming today. Back then, working cowboys would show off their riding and roping talents to one another, sometimes competing with neighboring outfits. Eventually, these get-togethers moved into towns as organized “bucking shows,” which gained popularity in part due to Buffalo Bill Cody’s traveling Wild West Show. 

Wyoming is home to one herd of wild horses which is located in the Pryor Mountains south of Billings along the Montana-Wyoming border. For more than a century, the Pryor Mountains have been home to free-roaming bands of wild horses.  The Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range is unique in both its setting and for the wild horses that inhabit it. Many of the horses have primitive striping on their backs, withers, and legs and are reputed to be descendents of "colonial" Spanish horses.

Jackson Hole Horse Property ,offering a lot more than just a Ranch

Wilson, Teton County, Wyoming

This wooded 4.66 acre property is for sale by Owner, waiting on a new guide to take over as caretaker of the land, to come enjoy the tireless view of the "Grand" overlooking the open pastures for our horses and the creeks and ponds. We are in Tucker Ranch, on the Exclusive West Bank of Jackson Hole, a unique property affording the owner with the opportunity to be your own guide to an adventure, an adventure living in the Hole. We are talking about a lifestyle , an experience of La Segunda Vida, or the warm up to heaven. Whether you bring your family on vacation or stay year round, lay out the buffalo robes as a welcome mat for friends or clients, or an investor looking for a great investment, or on the lam or avoiding the news which would make your head explode-- well you will have found heaven. As an owner you will have access to a privately stocked 35 acre Tucker Lake, and if looking for the big fishing holes take a short 500 yard walk and enjoy our private access to the Snake River. The property itself in fact encompasses a compound retreat of 5 separate structures centered on the lodge pole pine Main House, and surrounded by a detached log Guest House/3 car Garage, a Summer outdoor Kitchen featuring professional appliances, a heated cedar Greenhouse with water, and a barn with three stalls, hay storage, loft, tack and wash rooms, and a 785 sq ft caretakers apartment. During ski season as many as 16 people have slept comfortably here , and during the summer when even more folks show up, you go to the bunk beds in the bunk house, or as some grandkids prefer, pitch a teepee or tent in the woods. The property was designed for privacy with the three larger structures being fully self sufficient accommodations, but close enough to the Main House or Summer Kitchen for entertaining and family gatherings, which has hosted several 200 person events. The property comes with virtually unlimited water rights dating from the 1800s, with water as cold as ice and crystal clear from 2 wells. Lastly for the wildlife lover you will soon fall in love with the "locals", and if you are like most folks around here you will need a digital camera with a big memory to capture the bald eagles and nest right off the property line, the herds of elk, Mama Moose and her twins, the horses out in the pasture, coyotes, foxes, deer, squirrels, chipmunks, humming birds, owls, and the occasional bear seeking refuge from a fire. You will soon realize that you really do live in your own park, yet surrounded by the rival national park system. It is a very special place, and we have no geysers.
