Trail Rides Schedule
to the 2020 San Antonio Stock Show

Trail rides and wagon trains, probably the oldest, most authentic form of transportation across the Old West. Pioneers moved west to fulfill dreams. Cowboys drove cattle to major markets. These are the reasons so many kids grow up with dreams of one day becoming a cowboy...or at least taking part in an old fashioned trail ride.

More than 3,500 riders will hit the trail on horseback and in wagons in February to ride to the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo. Riders from 11 locations in South and Central Texas will total 1309 miles between them, with an average of 18.9 miles per day. The trail rides all conclude in San Antonio in grand fashion inside the AT&T Center Rodeo Arena.

If you have an interest in riding in one of the trail rides or just want to meet up with a ride for some pictures, check out their schedules.
