Yaaaa Hoooooo! We are talking Texas after all… home of the Cowboys! Now we’re not talking football… we’re speaking about real-life ropers, riders and roughnecks! Dallas/Fort Worth is home to the authentic cowboy lifestyle.

Experience the event that Texas is famous for… its rodeos! The longest-running local rodeo can be found in Fort Worth. Every Friday and Saturday night, Stockyards Championship Rodeo features trick roping, riding and shooting, as well as cowboy songs, entertainment and a look throughout history. These are real, professional cowboys/cowgirls so don’t try this at home boys and girls.

Let’s face it, when we think of Texas, we picture men and women on the back of a horse roaming over the lush planes of a ranch. So to put it bluntly, horses are a part of what makes Texas what it is. Some might think of Dallas is a huge city, not as a playground for equestrian adventures. Guided trail rides are usually one or two hours, and they have different locations around the Dallas/Fort Worth area. For those individuals that have never ridden before, riding lessons are also available. Many horseback riding companies in Texas have a variety of horses and will match you with one that best fits your ability level so beginners should feel welcome and at ease.

Cattle Drive
Well, we’ve covered roping and riding; the only thing left is roughnecks (a.k.a. Cattle Drivers). You can experience Fort Worth Herd’s cattle drive twice each day where the Old West truly comes to life right before your eyes. These are not amateurs by any means. Real Texas cowhands drive a herd of longhorns down Exchange Avenue in the Stockyards National Historic District. Every nuance of the cattle drive—from the saddles and chaps, to the boots and hats – is authentic and historically true. You will not be disappointed in this once-in-a-lifetime cowboy experience.
