Historically, agriculture has been an important component of Wyoming’s economy. Its overall importance to the performance of Wyoming’s economy has waned. However, agriculture is still an essential part of Wyoming’s culture and lifestyle. More than 91% of land in Wyoming is classified as rural.

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.

Cody, Park County, Wyoming

Situated in the South Fork of the Shoshone River Valley, 40 miles southwest of Cody, Wyoming, is the Flying H Ranch. Comprised of 280 diverse deeded acres, the land is a blend of lush irrigated hay fields, riparian corridor, aspen and cottonwood groves and rangeland pastures. This combination provides excellent habitat to the abundant wildlife, including elk, moose, mule deer, mountain lion and the occasional grizzly bear or wolf. With the quality forage the ranch qualifies for land owner tags for deer and elk. Bordered by public Shoshone National Forest, an incoming owner will enjoy unlimited recreation, privacy and peace unrivaled by other ranches. Considered one of the best trout fisheries in Wyoming, the South Fork of the Shoshone River runs along the property for approximately two miles. To compliment the river there are three ponds on the ranch, providing excellent onsite fishing opportunities for rainbow, brook and brown trout. Naturally appealing, the irrigated meadows produce approximately 50 tons of quality grass hay annually. Year round accessibility provides the opportunity to live on the ranch continually or make this a summer vacation property. Improvements include a beautiful owner’s home, guest house, managers home, bunk house, heated shop, and historic horse barn. With spectacular mountain views, abundant wildlife, recreation and end of the road seclusion, Flying H Ranch offers a western lifestyle unmatched in the Rocky Mountain region.
