The show began modestly enough in 1945, and it was quoted that the show’s benefactor, Mr. James Abercrombie, “met all expenses of the show, including $3,600 in purses, so the entire gate income could be turned over to those in need,” thus establishing

of the initial backing that established Texas Children’s Hospital in the Texas Medical Center. The property on Loop 610, below the Galleria and near the South Post Oak exit, became the first home of the Pin Oak Charity Horse Show. Long-legged horses and beautiful women walked beneath the oaks. Soon, the show grew from American Saddlebreds and Hackney ponies to include its most renowned event: show jumping. Pin Oak brought this almost unknown spectacle to Houston and people took notice. Soon, Pin Oak’s crowds were more than friends and well-wishers; they were people who enjoyed the jumping. The show was a fixture on the social calendar throughout the 1950s and 1960s. Those were the days some Houstonians fondly remember, walking between the large sponsor pavilion in one barn and the elegant Volume 54 Texas Farm&Ranch

metal roof and covered porch extending around most of the home. This permits one to get a feel for the natural beauty of the property while relaxing in a casual elegance. The living area, with tall ceilings, massive fireplace and library, is excellent for entertaining groups or intimate gatherings. Other features include a gourmet kitchen, pool and viewing room in the tower, which provides breathtaking views of the ranch. The serene rolling countryside of the ranch completely engulfs a hidden canyon, which has withstood the test of time. The canyon provides a wet-weather natural spring, cool pools of water, mature foliage, natural caverns and abundant wildlife. This setting has been preserved to give a glimpse of Texas history, including Native American lifestyle and remnants of historic wagon trails. A pond and lake complete the ranch and blend perfectly to make C&E Texas Ranch a Texas charm. Diverse as the great state of Texas and rich with natural beauty, this special property provides a tranquil place for reflection and is simply awe-inspiring. $3,100,000.v
