Well, it’s that time of year again and we are all gearing up for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Have you got your boots ready? I’ve got mine.
Last year, I shared my experiences about what it takes to get a steer ready for a livestock show.
This year I want to discuss a different road to the rodeo. If you don’t get out of the Houston metropolitan area much, you may not realize that this week thousands of trail riders from 13 different groups are making their way to our fair city. Ultimately, they all camp out together in Memorial Park on Friday (February 27th). They then join bands and floats to parade through downtown Houston on Saturday (February 28th) to officially kick off the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo season.
