LA MARQUE, TEXAS -More than 150 trail riders with Texas Independence Trail Ride Association will participate in a Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Warm Up this

weekend, camping at Mac McGaffey Highland Bayou Park and riding around the City of La Marque Saturday and Sunday.

The trail riders will travel 14 miles on Saturday, passing by La Marque City Hall around 9:30 a.m. Citizens interested in viewing the trail ride are invited to park at City

Hall or La Marque Public Library Saturday morning. Complete routes, along with maps, are attached.

The group will be back to Mac McGaffey Highland Bayou Park in February as they participate in the statewide trail ride to Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. The

Texas Independence Trail Ride was formed in 1961. The group encourages families to ride together and are known on the trail as the “family ride”. Generations of families

ride together every year and the annual event has become a family reunion of sorts. Texas Independence is a nonprofit organization that strives to stimulate, promote and

encourage the love of horses, riding and good fellowship. Preserving Cowboy

Heritage is a tradition of their ride, as well as encouraging participation in

Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. For information, find them on Facebook

or email txindependencetr@gmail.com.

According to www.rodeohouston.com, the Houston Livestock Show and

Rodeo Trail Ride started in 1952, when four men traveled on horseback from

Brenham, Texas. Today, more than 3,000 trail riders partake in the tradition

each year. Riders hit the trail in an attempt to recreate the Old West, and in

doing so, find a common ground that links us all to the Rodeo.
