Special Event: Community Day 11/18 and Motocross FLY day 11/19

We are kicking off for another great weekend of adventures and fun at Maverick Horseback Riding.  On Saturday, we currently have a few spaces left on our morning ride.  We are booked for the afternoon.

 

From 4pm-7pm we will be hosting a variety of great activities, free for the community.  Enjoy riding the mechanical bull if you’d like to test your shot as a country cowboy or cowgirl, learn about ancient weapons and the classical bow and arrow with Ranger Lauren, who is visiting from the Lockhart State Park to spend the afternoon with us, free cupcakes and face painting and crafts.

 

Like our last event, our First Annual Halloween Bash, Maverick’s will be providing free pony rides to the public as well as photos with a unicorn.  Can’t really beat that!

 

Keelan Smith of Caldwell County Snake Relocation, the only free snake removal service in Caldwell county, will be coming to offer an educational class for children and adults on local snakes, as well as free removal services.  Find an unwanted or worrisome critter on your property?  Contact Caldwell County Snake Relocation services to handle the problem for you.

 

If you’d like to come join us for the festivities this weekend, or you’re looking for a way to get out of the house and something fun to do, come by anytime from 4-7pm.

 

More details are coming, along with pictures from our last event at Flying H Ranch in Lockhart, TX, where we co-hosted our first community day, a First Annual Halloween Bash.  We are thrilled to host a second event for the locals and would like to extend a warm invitation for you to visit us with your family.  Bring a picnic basket for a beautiful backdrop to your dinner date, or cozy up to the fire with some hot dogs.  We will see you there!
