Folks visiting with horses in tow have a few options. We've rounded up five spots that let you take a load off and sit a spell.
Easily the most horse-friendly attraction in Fort Worth, the Will Rogers Memorial Center plays host to numerous equestrian events year-round and the legendary Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo. The facility offers over 1,300 permanent horse stalls, plus even more portable stalls, to groups looking to rent the space.
Founded in 1848, the family-owned Edwards Ranch predates the very city that has grown up around it. Once spanning 7,000 acres in Fort Worth, the land is now occupied by a high-end shopping and dining development, multi-residential housing and miles of riverfront access from the Trailhead at Clearfork. The area is primed for trailer parking - it is a ranch after all!
The Coyote Drive In's location near the Trinity River Equestrian Trails makes it a fun spot to ride in with your horse. Hitches make it a convenient stopping point to take in a movie or refreshments from the cantina. A map of the trail system is available here.
The large parking lot at Cooper's can more than accommodate horse trailers while you cure your hankering for barbecue. What better place to visit than the historic Stockyards to enjoy some 'que in Fort Worth?
If you decide to hang around a bit longer, mosey on over Stockyards Station for tons of family fun, great shopping, and a front-row seat to the world's only twice-daily cattle drive presented by the Fort Worth Herd. Parking is free along Exchange Ave and $7 in the back lots. More information here.
