On the road again...
Howdy, y’all! Members of the South Texas Trail Riders proudly post the colors while trekking across South Texas, including their Feb. 6 stop in Floresville.
The tradition of trail riders heading to San Antonio continues to live on as more than 3,500 riders from 11 locations in South and Central Texas took to area roadways on horseback and in wagons to ride to the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo. The 64th annual event continues through Sunday, Feb. 24.
Trail riders began their journeys Jan. 30, concluding their various rides in grand fashion inside the AT&T Center rodeo arena Feb. 9.
Trail rides that trekked through Wilson County last week include the Mesquite Traildrivers, the Old Chisholm Trail Drivers, and the South Texas Trail Riders.
This year, Mother Nature was in the trail riders’ favor, with only a couple of days of precipitation. One element the riders encountered along the trail, however, was heavy traffic, due in part to the Eagle Ford oil and gas exploration in South Texas.
