It’s time to shine those (most likely red) boots, put on your best hat and get ready for the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo!
As we get ready to eat all the fried foods, attend all the shows, and celebrate all the ways that HLSR gives back to the community, we had to ask our #UHBauer family what they love best about the Rodeo.
Whenever the Rodeo comes around I enjoy going with my friends to hit all the rides, concerts, and most importantly, the petting zoo. The animals are so cute and relatable.

My mom and I always set a date to the rodeo. I remember her winning me a stuffed animal that I was dying to have only five minutes before the rodeo closed one year as a kid. Now as an adult, I try to win her a stuffed animal every year. Wish me luck!

By far, our favorite thing is Mutton Busting! There is nothing quite as Texan as strapping little kids to sheep and making them run. We love watching the children who really get into it (and practice riding on their parents!)
