What does it take to be a drover, you ask? Two years of responsible experience in horseback riding, cattle handling and educational programming or tourism-related activities are required. As a drover, extensive teamwork as well as public contact are a must and bilingual ability is preferred. A drover is responsible for the direct care of horses and cattle, operation and maintenance of equipment, driving cattle, interacting with visitors and presenting educational programs to both children and adults. Working conditions include: indoor & outdoor environments, exposure to extremes in weather conditions, working around moving vehicles and animals, exposure to dust, fumes and noise.
Fort Worth is the only place in the world that offers twice-daily cattle drives which are an integral part of the history and heritage here. To learn more about the history of the cattle drives, click here.
