Wolf hunting is closely watch by both the state and federal governments. Wolves are unqine among North American predators, a pack will hunt one species heavy, elk is the usually their first choice then when they get scarce they more to another species.
Now lets had cattle and horses in to the mix. Cattle are similar to elk in weight and some what slower, so they become an easy target. Horses exspecially a lone horse like a trail horse is a tempting target too.
And wolves have not been hunted since the early 1900's, when most of the populations were destroyed. ie they have lost their fear of people and in their mind we can be on the table too.
A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.
