Happy trails to you ...

Happy trails to you ...
Mesquite Traildrivers Queen Alexa Roberts

Traveling en route to San Antonio, don’t be surprised to see trail riders making their way along the busy highways. For generations, people of all ages have continued to spend a week or longer on the trail to promote the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo.

Among the trail rides are the Mesquite Traildrivers, who travel 96.4 miles; and the Old Chisholm Trail Drivers, 100.7 miles. Sandhills Trail Riders of La Vernia join the Old Chisholm Trail Drivers along the way.

So if you see them on the road, wave howdy, and give them some space as they mosey down the trail!

Mesquite Traildrivers Queen Alexa Roberts, 18, is an early graduate of Floresville High School and is currently enrolled in college. While in high school, she competed on the FFA Skills team and was a member of the National Honor Society.

“Some of my greatest accomplishments include speaking for the Texas Organ Sharing Alliance and becoming the queen of Mesquite Traildrivers,” Alexa said.

Alexa’s hobbies include dancing, horseback riding, and volunteer firefighting.

Her future goal is to finish college and work as an attorney.

Mesquite Traildrivers Little Miss Shayna Bone is a fifth-grader at La Vernia Intermediate School. Shayna’s after-school activities include Drama Kids International. This is where she learned public-speaking skills and developed her self-confidence. She recently performed in the group’s Christmas play at the Wilson County Courthouse in Floresville.

An active member of the group since birth, Shayna learned her love of horses from her grandparents, Mark and Becky Dickson. That love has flourished under the love and support of her proud parents, Jeremy and Kristine Bone; little brother Dylan Bone; and grandparents James and Pam Johnson.

A caring and dedicated young lady, her family said Shayna can accomplish anything she puts her mind to and has a bright future ahead of her. Shayna’s first love is animals; she plans to go to college and become a veterinarian.

“We love and are proud of what she has accomplished to this day,” her family said.

Johnny Clifford Ervin IV, 9, is this year’s Mesquite Traildrivers mascot. Johnny said his hobbies are riding horses, going to rodeos, playing baseball, and just being a kid.

His family includes his dad, Johnny Ervin III; his “Pop Pop,” Johnny Ervin Jr., and his Nana, Cathy Harmon; aunt Hannah Ervin, uncle Bailey Ervin, and little sister Pasilee Ervin.

“I want to wish everybody a safe and happy trail ride this year,” Johnny said. “Happy trails. Let’s rodeo!”

Sandhills Trail Riders of La Vernia queen is Sydney Messenger.

Sydney, 17, is a student at Floresville High School and has been riding since she was able to sit up on her own. Her favorite thing besides riding is theater.
