Rodeo is an extreme sport and one of the most popular activities in Texas. In the tests both horses and bulls are used, but unlike bullfighting in Spain, the animals don't die after each event. There are many variations in the rodeo, the most popular is riding wild horses or bulls. It's very simple: mount the animal - encased in a pen- once the door is opened you need to stay on the bull for 8 seconds, holding on one handed. It's a test of skill, physical strength and agility, very fun to watch though and luckily for the cowboys, brief. In Crider's start with the children's tests: they have to stay on a sheep for 8 seconds that shoots out of the pen when they open the door. To my knowledge there is no minimum age to compete. After, it's the turn of the young guys that ride heifers, and then the adults. There are several tests, such as steers down, hoop throwing, or barrel racing (horses), showing the agility and speed of the horse. In Crider's the show lasts about an hour and a half. Then the cowboys come down from their horses and go straight to the dance floor, to see if they throw the loop to something out there.
There's a little town in the Texas Hill Country that has an exact replica of Stonehenge. They also have several replicas of the moai of Easter Island. They are located right next to the road and access is free.
When in Hill Country, you might at some point want to get away from the ranch and do something more urban. Kerrville has a multiplex cinema, Rio 10, with 10 screens. It is on Bandera Road. The building from the outside looks really retro, very cool. You need a car to get there. A few meters away is the mall, so you can complete the afternoon with some shopping and some fast food.
