What You'll Get
Millions of people worldwide enjoy horse racing, but very few of them actually have the speed, strength, and endurance required to actually win a race against a horse. Leave horseplay to the professionals with today's Groupon: for $5, you get a one-day ticket to the Bandera Chuckwagon Races held May 13–15 at the Twin Elm Guest Ranch (a $10 value) in Bandera.
This spring, the Twin Elm Guest Ranch hosts the Bandera Chuckwagon Races in a three-day-long equi-centric event that gratifies guests with food, camping, arena events, and more. The ranch spans across more than 250 acres of scenic hills, woods, trails, and rivers, which guests can easily access by teaming up with a horse and doing their best centaur impressions ($35 per hour). On Friday, May 13, the festivities will begin with the 8 a.m. chuck wagon breakfast, and later that night, ticket holders can enjoy the 8 p.m. Twin Elm Buckle Series Rodeo. In addition to watching bull riding, barrel racing, and calf roping, guests can enjoy mounting their own saddled sidekick for a 9 a.m. trail ride on May 14 before cheering on the chuck wagon racers.
Races and events will take place throughout the day, and guests may stake a claim at the Twin Elm campgrounds to enjoy evening activities such as telling ghost stories and singing to stacks of logs until they catch fire. A night of primitive camping is included with each Groupon, but sites with electrical hookups cost extra. Guests may also ease anticipation for the races by camping at Twin Elm beginning May 7. Tents, trailers, horses, and RVs are all encouraged in order to enjoy the full benefits of the event.
