Cowboys and Longhorns
Texas Longhorn Cattle Drive

So, you wanna be a Cowboy? Cowgirl?

     In your dreams, do you ride across a wide open landscape trailing cattle toward an endless horizon?  Do you yearn for silences broken only by the squeak of leather, the bawl of a calf, the wind ruffling the grass?  Where the world spirals down to the pace of a good horse? 

This is the myth and legion of the old west!

     Texas was built on the spotted, bony backs of Longhorn cattle.  130 years later, the view from behind the herd - a wild desert country famed by a set of curling horns - has not changed.  Here in a far corner of West Texas, you can still experience what this feels like.  Ride through a piece of history as you round up their herd of heritage longhorns.  It is not just a demonstration; this is a hands on working program.  All of this amid the grandeur we call Big Bend. 

Join in for the adventure of a lifetime!
