The Sam Houston Trail Riders rode into downtown Tomball from Montgomery on Feb. 25. The riders stopped in Tomball to a large reception as they make their way to Houston for the annual Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, which begins March 3.
The riders' journey started Feb. 24 and will end Feb. 28 when they complete their roughly 70-mile trip.
The Sam Houston Trail Riders are just one of 12 trail ride groups that travel to Houston for the rodeo—the furthest one away being the Mission Trail Ride coming from San Antonio—according to the Houston Livestock and Rodeo website.
The Sam Houston Trail Riders have 100 participants and were established in 1955, making this its 65th year, according to rodeo information.
After a break in Tomball, the trail ride group headed to Spring Creek Park, according to the group's schedule.
