A Letter to Local Businesses

The Mission of Maverick Horseback Riding is to create local spaces for children, families and visitors to learn about Texas history, ecological restoration, and cultural preservation. We believe that small towns are worth protecting, and can greatly benefit from educational programs for locals to preserve real working skills as well as a place to develop an understanding of modern skills needed to promote, market and sustain the workforce.

When small towns open their doors to tourism and travel, they gain the opportunity to raise revenue for local projects, schools and organizations. After having traveled many places in the US and abroad, the Mavericks have seen firsthand how town that keep their doors closed eventually succumb to outsiders, in the form of new residents.

Maverick Horseback Riding champions local preservation by supporting businesses and non profits in an effort to raise money to support the town and the townspeople. While there of course comes a time when cities and towns must expand to meet the needs of a growing population, we hope that our support of local businesses and non profits helps bring in the necessary monies to promote growth through tourism, not a changing residency of outsiders.

Wherever we’ve traveled, we believe broad-scale commercialization is generally a bad thing. Making everything the same is no fun at all. Wherever we go and whatever we do, our goal is to promote local sustenance. If you are interested in learning more or would like to collaborate with us, please reach out (Contact Us).

Thanks to the many, many local folks, organizations and businesses who have collaborated with us and helped us over the years. We love Central Texas and we want to Keep Texas Texas!
