HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Tragedy struck for a member of a trail ride, as they made their way to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
One of the founding members of the Northeastern trail riders died from a sudden heart attack this morning. RD Joe, of Cheek, died during his ride on the trail.
The trail boss says the ride will continue and the team will take comfort knowing RD died doing what he loved to do -- hitting the trail ride every year.
The Northeastern trail riders are headed into Houston from the Crosby area.
