Horses in Nebraska
There’s no state in the USA quite like Nebraska. It is divided into two halves in terms of climate. The western side is mostly arid plains and uplands. The east side is more humid, and home to agriculture and other commercial activities. Good cow horses and trail horses were needed in the west. Draft horses have always been important to European farmers on the eastern side.
The economic impact of the Nebraska horse industry
Nebraska has 180,000 horses. Many of them are still working animals. They can be found on ranches and working as police horses in Nebraska’s towns and cities. Some draft horses still work on the farms in the eastern part of the state. There are also wild horses in Nebraska. In total, Nebraska’s horses contribute $700 million annually to the state economy. The state has an international reputation for the quality of its horse stock. As fewer working horses were required, Nebraska adapted and now also produces outstanding show horses.
The history of horses in Nebraska
For thousands of years prior to European settlement, the land that now makes up Nebraska was home to native American tribes. The people in this region included Pawnee, Ponca, Omaha, and Oto in the east, and Arapaho, Sioux, and Cheyenne in the west. They acquired horses quite early in the history of European settlement of America, certainly by 1680. Horses played an important part in the way they lived. In the east, the largely agricultural indigenous people began to hunt buffalo. In the west, the Cheyenne, Arapaho, and Sioux were able to hunt over wider areas, including the plains, thanks to horses. Conflict existed not just between tribal nations and the Europeans, but also between tribes. Horses facilitated both war and hunting. Fort Robinson was the location of an important US cavalry remount station.
Later, Olympic riders were also trained here. Nebraska was on a major route west, so mail coaches and stagecoaches passed through, all adding to the Nebraska horse economy in the nineteenth century. Gold speculators came through on their way to Wyoming, using horses, mules, and donkeys to help them in their work. The Pony Express passed through Nebraska, too, from 1860 to 1861. Working horses were essential to the Nebraska economy until well into the twentieth century. As more people turned to equestrian sports and other activities, Nebraska breeders concentrated on producing high-quality show stock.
Horse associations in Nebraska
It may come as a surprise to learn that Nebraska was the original location of the United States Dressage Federation, inaugurated in 1973. Nebraska is a state rich in equestrian associations and activities. Quarter Horses in this state are not only exceptional stock horses but some are also represented in the AQHA Hall of Fame. The Nebraska-bred AQHA sire “Two Eyed Jack” is recognized as the leading champion Quarter Horse sire of all time. 4-H associations and events are very popular, with several national winners coming from Nebraska. Equestrian activities in this state are brought together under the Nebraska Horse Council, which represents the interests of the equestrian community. Nebraska Horsemen’s Park near Omaha offers racing and other events all year round.
Equestrian activities in Nebraska
Every type of equestrian activity is popular in this state, from racing to dressage. Hunter-jumpers are supported by various hunt clubs. Driving is also popular in this state. Natural Horsemanship is flourishing. Given Nevada’s reputation for stock horses, it is not surprising that rodeo is well-supported here, too. The best known is the Big Rodeo at the Garfield County Fair, an event associated somewhat controversially with the Wild Horse Race, in which cowboys attempt to saddle and ride some of Nebraska’s wild horses.
