More than 3,000 riders on horseback and in wagons are taking to Texas roads this week to follow 13 different trail rides on their way to Houston.

The five-day, 70 mile ride will converge on Friday as the riders will take part in a parade on Saturday leading up to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

The annual spectacle will then open on Tuesday and run through March 20.
