A friend of mine is getting ready to take his first solo car trip across the U.S. While planning his trip, he came across the Big Texan Steak Ranch and Horse Hotel and sent me a link because they have horse stalls for traveling horse owners. We’ve driven across the U.S. multiple times now and recall seeing all the billboards for the Big Texan (eat this giant steak in an hour and it’s free!) but never paid attention to their equine features. We don’t plan on traveling to Texas with our horses but if we did, this looks like a fun place to stay! They have (from their website):
- 20 “Texas Size” Stalls 12′ X 12′ (Sand or Dirt)
- A 60-foot round pen
- 4 Gated Runs Complimentary During Day Use
- Secondary 6-foot Perimeter Chain Link Fence
- 55 Room Motel open 24 hours
- Truck & Trailer Parking
- Giant steaks!
I’m sure there are others but this is the first time I’ve ever seen mention of a “horse hotel”. Do you know of any others? Have any of you ever stayed at the Big Texan?
By the way, if you have 12×12 stalls in your barn, you can impress your horses by telling them their stalls are “Texas Size”!
