Cowboy Camps serve many things from the chuckwagon, but the most favorite is cowboy chili. The chili was full of flavor. It was hard for our chili judges to choose, but the winners were:
1st Place went to Wesley Luckie from Austin
2nd Place went to Kathryn Cavender from Missouri City. Katheryn is the reigning TICC world champion.
South East Texas' Hottest Country Event Band, Texas Remedy, with over 15 years of experience performing all over Texas, performed at the Cowboy Camp.
They were awesome! We are hoping to have them back next year.
Gayle Brittain is in the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame and the Texas Cowgirl Hall of Fame in Fort Worth and has won numerous prizes and awards throughout her rodeo career. But being a certified Equine Specialist and working with people who suffer from mental, physical and behavioral issues is what she feels is her greatest honor. She presented a video on human trafficking and provided an equine therapy demo with volunteers from the crowd.
