I have a question for all you texas folks! I have always wanted to travel through texas and this june 8-15 I am off work and am going to be doing just that! Now of course from me being on horseforum you know what my passion is, HORSES! So I am looking online for different places to go and things to do and its well.... I am drawing a blank as to where to go what to do? I was considering going to fort worth and from then Idk lol. I do know I will be making a stop through Gilmer, Texas as I have just started training colts for a ranch in Gilmer and he has requested that I visit the ranch when I come through!(He brings the colts 8 hours to me in MS). So For one day I will be in Gilmer but other than that... This is where I need you guys help? What should I do? Where should I go? What is a must see?
Denton county is probably the best place to see horses in this country.
I believe there are over 25,000 there and some of the best stallions and breeding facilities in the country. Tioga, Aubrey Valley View and a few other towns.
You might also want to go to Bandera, Weatherford, Stephenville, out west to the big ranches like the 6666's, WT Waggoner Estate, Brown Ranches and numerous others then swing south and head to the King Ranch. That will take all you time up by then I think. It would be acouple of thousand miles round trip .
It also depends on when you come but Ft Worth has some of the biggest show around and the best cutters will be there Shalom
