Ruben Vasquez: In the early part of the 20th century traveling on horseback was a common place. People traveled into towns for supplies for their families, to run an errand, or to court a sweetheart in a nearby town. To travel twelve or fifteen miles one way and back usually took the most part of a day if one was in a hurry to get back home. And if you travel the path often enough a fella would not have to keep track of where he was going, the horse would make its way home right to the front steps. Yet horse and rider rarely separated and to this day could be heard on the farm to market roads and grassy meadows of the country side on the north side of Richmond Texas. The following stories were actual true events that span several generations.
