Picture the typical Texas stereotype and we dove full force into the Texas Ranch Roundup!We made a day of it and had so much fun! We started out at the cutting horse auction, made our way through the vendors, and ended with a night of rodeo! Its some serious business and we enjoyed it! All I can say is Yee-Haw! Enjoy!
A little history - The Original Texas Ranch Roundup began in 1981 and is held annually every August. To be eligible, a ranch must be selected by the Roundup Committee with consideration given to working ranch status, length of ownership or management and historical significance. What makes the Texas Ranch Roundup unique is that it incorporates the entire ranch family with a cookin' contest as well as a festival including photography, painting & drawing, furniture, crafts and western handiwork. Winners of these events earn points that, combined with their points in the rodeo, make up the Ranch Roundup winner.
