Houston Rodeo Trail Ride 2015
It was a February afternoon. I was driving towards Memorial Park to have an afternoon run and I noticed bright orange pilons partitioning off the roadway.
I pulled my car over and got out. I felt an excitement in the air. I smelled the smell of horses. I heard the ‘clop, clop, clop’ of hooves on pavement. I scan around to discover the bigger picture… It’s the famous Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo Trail Ride announcing the beginning of rodeo season in Houston!
Every year over 3,000 cowboys and cowgirls saddle up and re-live the old west by participating in a trail ride with covered wagons, horses, mules, tents & sleeping bags. It is a time honored cavalcade and a true Texas tradition. There are 13 trail-ride groups coming from as far as Reynosa Mexico.

Boasting an impressive list of world famous singers and entertainers, it has also donated over $375 million in scholarships and towards benefiting the study of breeding better livestock and farm products. Not to mention a super succulent Barb-q cook off.
