Stock Horse of Texas hosts stand-alone clinics, as well as shows paired with a one-day clinic.  Our stand-alone clinics offer a small group setting that focuses on fundamentals as well as skills used in the four stock horse events. Some stand-alone clinics have live cattle for cow horse practice, while others utilize a flag.

Shows paired with a one-day clinic are scheduled throughout the year. These events feature a clinic on Friday with four equine professionals each teaching one of the four stock horse disciplines (trail, pleasure, reining and cow). Riders are divided into four groups and rotate to each discipline throughout the day. Groups range from 15-20 riders per group. Riders will have the opportunity to practice on a live cow as well as ride across many of the trail course obstacles that will be included in the show on Saturday.

Saturday shows run in multiple arenas throughout the day. A tentative show schedule will be posted online and on Facebook the day before the show, with estimated times and locations for each division. **Please note, the entry form is NOT a show schedule.

Some events offer co-approved AQHA classes.

2017 Tentative Schedule

The ceremony officially naming the Kris Wilson Fearless Champion Arena will take place at noon on Saturday, April 1 during the Stock Horse of Texas show.  Kris was the founder of the Ranch Horse Team at Texas Tech, and he also created the collegiate ranch horse team competition.
