Saturday October 28th Schedule

Halloween Festivities are swinging into full gear, and at Maverick Riding we plan on riding the wave of child and adulthood silliness alongside the best of them.  Our weekend will begin on Friday at noon at our new Special Events Venue, “Flying H Ranch,” in Lockhart, TX, where our professional photographer will be present to snap some photos of riders decked out in their favorite Halloween gear.  Care to sport a costume and selfie it up with a unicorn?  Now’s your chance.  Book a ride with us at noon, 3pm or 5:30pm to enjoy the sunset and we will enjoy the spooktacular energy of one of America’s favorite customs as well as the opportunity to ride on Spoaks Motopark’s professional race track.  Yep.  You heard us.  Professional motocross track.  Sweet.

Saturday morning at 10am and again at 1pm we will have rides open to the public.  Call to schedule.  Leave room in your day following your horseback riding adventure to peruse through some family-friendly activities, all free to the public.

Friday

Make a Unicorn: Children of Lockhart.  We need your help.  Maverick’s is requesting all skilled and unskilled unicorn enthusiasts to come help us create a real-life unicorn.  This demonstration activity will require the help of assistants, to be called upon in the crowd!  Our Monday night riding students will help facilitate this activity.  It’s one of our favorites, so be sure to come by DRESSED IN YOUR FAVORITE HALLOWEEN COSTUME.  Our photographer will be present and how can one resist the chance to take a photo with a unicorn in their Halloween outfit?  Time TBA

Saturday

Arts and Crafts: No community festival is complete without an arts & crafts table.  Come, Lockhart, and enjoy the day!

Relay Races: Probably the best part in the making.  Picture it: Monster mash three-legged race, awkward scrambling around with a giant dinosaur head, deck your relay partner in toilet paper as a mummy before sprinting off to the check point.  Prizes!

7pm Bonfire: BYOSmores!  There is no better way to celebrate the fall season than a smokin’, cracklin’ bonfire.  Bring some hotdogs for a picnic dinner and enjoy the sunset while you roast ’em up!  Don’t forget the smores!

Letter from the Owner

Horse Vacation

Chatting with some tourists over an immense breakfast of guacamole, eggs, veggies and tortillas this morning I learned that one of the gals had worked on a ranch in Nicaragua.  I recommended that she visit with a local named Don Pedro who rents horses to people.  While we do not offer horse rentals at Maverick […]
