Charlie Snider has handed over the reins to the 56th Masked Rider, officially ending his term. Snider made more than 311 appearances with horse Fearless Champion during his year-long appointment. The two traveled all across Texas, including stops in Dallas, Tyler, Houston and San Antonio.
"It's really one of the most unique experiences I've had," Snider said. "There's almost something about every single appearance, you can say, (that) was very memorable."
Since 1954, the Masked Rider has served as one of the most popular traditions at Texas Tech University.
