D&D Supports: Tejas RodeoPosted by | 03.21.2018
Tejas Rodeo Company is a hidden gem, tucked away in the corner of Bulverde, Texas, just north of San Antonio. This is what their website says, and as I was driving the windy way past New Braunfels to Bulverde, I had to agree.
Off Obst road, which is your typical quiet backroad, you appear at Texas Rodeo Company. A black horse and the familiar neon looking “gate” greets you high in the sky, and you know you are there.
I had the pleasure of a tour around the property, with Martin Hinojosa. He showed me around the arena, where we watched one of the boarded horses gallop around the dirt. On any given Saturday, the now bare bleachers would house 1000 spectators.
It is so great to see a fellow Texan (or two) start with an idea and grow it to such a destination. Yancey James and Trey Martin started the Tejas Rodeo Company as a place for local cowboys to come rodeo on Saturdays. This grew from a concept, to an arena, to a small band stage, to added rodeo entertainment, to a gift shop, to horse boarding, to getaway lodging, to a bigger band stage, to a steakhouse, and now an events complex!
Each year from March thru November, you can attend a rodeo every Saturday night. It begins with with a grand entry, complete with horse & buggy and longhorns. The rodeo entertainment consists of bull riding, a drill team performance on horseback, team roping, mutton bustin, calf scramble, breakaway roping, tie down roping, barrel racing, and more bull riding. After this, the live music begins, as well as the slack.
As you follow the crushed granite trails thru the grounds, you can’t help but feel you’re in a special place. Your senses come alive with the smell of steak and carne asada, and sounds of laughter and excitement. It truly is a place to visit, tucked away in the small town of Bulverde, Texas.
