Summer rodeo season is huge in Wyoming. Cowboys, cowgirls, bullfighters, officials, announcers, judges, clowns, and livestock companies will fuel their trucks and hit the road.

You'll see all types of trucks on the rodeo grounds, especially Dodge Ram. They have all the power you'd need to pull a trailer full of animals, equipment, and crew from town to town, night after night, all summer.

The average Dodge Ram 2500 with a 6.4-liter Hemi has around 410 horsepower, which is a little more than the 6.7-liter Cummins diesel. Either engine has some big power, but sometimes, it's just not enough.

Sometimes, though, all a truck's horsepower isn't enough, and you have to rely on true horsepower.

We're not slamming Dodge Ram; situations happen, and you may need a little more help than your truck can give. If you're a Ford or Chevy driver, you're probably going to make fun of the driver of this particular Ram. Just remember that it could happen to any of us. So, I wouldn't poke too much fun at the truck driver who needed actual horsepower to get out of a sticky situation.

It is cool to see the pure power of horses and how strong they are when they're working together to get things done. This gets me excited for the rodeos in action all over Wyoming.

Pictures Capture The Love Between Wyoming Ranchers And Their Horses

These pictures were taken by professional photographer Chris Dickinson at the 88 Ranch located outside of Douglas, and they perfectly show the love between ranchers and the animals they raise and work with 365 days a year.
