Horses in Wyoming
The economic impact of the Wyoming horse industry
It is difficult to estimate the overall impact of Wyoming’s equine and equestrian sectors. Ranching, mining, and tourism are the principal commercial activities of this state. Yet, Wyoming is one of the horsiest places in America, and the equine contribution is essential to its character and success. That’s recognized in the statistics. There are 99,257 horses in Wyoming, meaning there are 5.1 people to every horse. Wyoming heads the rankings in terms of the human-horse ratio. Wyomingites are much more likely to come into contact with horses than people in any other state of America. The difference is that Wyoming still has a working horse tradition, distinct from the recreational and competitive riding that now leads equine economic activity elsewhere. Working horses support veterinary professionals, farriers, hay producers, and other essential trades. Wyoming’s domesticated and wild horses contribute to Wyoming’s tourism. This sector produces over $2 billion annually in state revenue.
The history of horses in Wyoming
It’s hard to separate legend from history in a state like Wyoming. It was home to various groups of Native American people, such as the Crow, Arapaho, Lakota, and Shoshone, before the arrival of Europeans. Parts of what is now Wyoming were ruled by the Spanish Empire until Mexican independence. The territories were ceded to America by Mexico after the Mexican–American War in 1848. However, much of Wyoming remained unexplored. When a member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition in 1807 described the area that would eventually become America’s famed Yellowstone Park, people thought he was telling a good tale! Small numbers of Europeans began to settle in Wyoming in the middle of the nineteenth century. The state became the location for conflict between sheep and cattle ranchers. Horses were essential for exploration, herding, and as pack animals. As minerals began to be exploited, horses served the miners and extraction companies.
Though less important today, agriculture, such as beet, wheat, and barley production, was a staple of Wyoming’s economy. Horses worked the land and moved the produce to markets. When horses escaped and became feral, they developed into some of the hardiest and most intelligent animals in the country. The challenge of taming them was taken up by Wyoming’s cowboys. One of these, a veteran of World War I called George N. Ostrom, created the original emblem of a bucking horse. Ostrom took his beloved horse Redwing to France in 1918. He painted Redwing bucking, then entered the image into a contest to choose a design for his regiment and won. A few years later, the university developed a similar bucking horse logo for its athletes based on a tough Mustang called Steamboat. Finally, in 1935 Secretary of State Lester Hunt selected a design of a bucking horse by Allen True as a symbol of the state. This logo now appears on license plates and items associated with Wyoming. Wyoming loves the bucking horse and its attitude! Several sculptures celebrate the bucking horse in Wyoming. The state’s horse culture was also celebrated in the work of Mary O’Hara, including her book, My Friend Flicka. In the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century, Wyoming was a major exporter of horses for the British army.
Wyoming’s wild horses
Wyoming is home to several feral herds of national importance. These include the unique Pryor Mountain Mustangs. Wyoming’s Mustangs are an important part of the tourist economy through activities such as the Pilot Butte Wild Horse Scenic Loop Tour.
