These Trunk Shows Are All You Need to Prep for the Houston Rodeo

Posted by Pinto Ranch on Oct 30th 2018

It’s rodeo time again in Houston! Every March locals and out-of-towners from socialites to genuine cowboys get gussied up for 20 days of rodeo-spectatin’, carnival-goin’, corn-dog-eatin’, livestock-buyin’, concert-watchin’, and good ol’ western fun. While all those to-do’s sound like a fine time, you can’t go to the rodeo in grandpa’s cowboy hat and boots. Rodeo-goers are expected to make a fashion statement in exotic boots, the finest hats, and maybe a rhinestone or two. To get your wardrobe rodeo-ready, Pinto Ranch hosts five weekends of rodeo trunk shows from the best boot makers at our Houston flagship store. All trunk shows are Saturday from 10AM to 6PM.
