Economic Impacts of the Horse Industry are valued at approximately $286 million with an activity distribution as follows: • $46 million from Racing • $98 million from Showing • $77 million from Recreation • $64 million from other activities.


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.
