HOUSTON – This year's 11 trail rides all head into Houston's Memorial Park Friday after being in the saddle for weeks.

Saturday morning, they all ride from the park to downtown to be in the annual Rodeo Houston Parade that starts at 10 a.m. Then the trail riders and their animals head back home to every corner of the state, in horse trailers, RV's and trucks.
