The summer rodeo season is kicking into high gear and Summit Pro Rodeo Company based near Centennial, Wyoming let us join them for bucking horse sorting and doctoring day last week to showcase a new and improved way to care for an animal and do it more safely.
Summit owner JD Hamaker says the chute was designed, built and welded by his son, Ty, who refined the structure based on a model first used by the BLM to work with wild mustangs. The Hamaker team brought in their 1,645 lb. bucking stud "Hairy Feathers" to demonstrate the versatile new chute than can be adapted to horses of any size.
