A Home for Steamboat

Casey Rislov

A Home for Steamboat is a story about a horse with an unbreakable spirit. Widely known as the symbol of Wyoming, the bucking bronco's silhouette has been a symbol on the state's license plate since 1936. He was cared for as a foal by a loving family and then later sold to a wealthy ranch owner. His cowhands tried to break the young horse, but the born bucker had a mind of his own. Steamboat could not be broken. He was sold again, this time to a man who felt a kinship with the horse's strong will and independence. Steamboat had finally found his true home. Based on the famous horse's life, A Home for Steamboat will inspire young cowboys and cowgirls to never give up.
