Houston Rodeo Trail Riders ride through town

HOUSTON – More than 3,000 trail riders will make their way through the streets of the nation`s fourth largest city Friday, Feb. 22, as they move toward Memorial Park. This continues a more-than-60-year-old tradition that helps keep Western heritage alive and alerts everyone that the world`s largest livestock show and rodeo is about to begin. After traveling a combined total of nearly 1,800 miles, 13 trail rides will merge and camp one last night before the Downtown Rodeo Parade, Saturday, Feb. 23. Beginning as early as Feb. 16, trail rides started making their way to Houston from points as far away as Reynosa, Mexico.
