Stock Horse of Texas (SHTX) is the oldest versatile stock horse association in the country – a true original that continues to innovate.

Stock Horse of Texas is designed for riders of all experiences to learn and compete in an environment that is friendly, affordable and designed to fit all levels of riding. Clinics focus on creating a ‘broke,’ functional stock horse that is a pleasure to ride. Our clinics promote learning in a relaxed atmosphere that suits both beginner riders and advanced competitors. Premiere horse industry clinicians, including multiple world champions, are regular teachers at clinics – an unmatched value to members.

Shows offer competitions in the four basic stock horse disciplines: Reining, Working Cow Horse, Stock Horse Pleasure and Stock Horse Trail. There is a division for every skill level, so riders can show with others of similar ability and experience. Divisions include Open, Non Pro, Limited Non Pro, Intermediate Non Pro, Novice, Youth and Junior horse. Stock Horse of Texas also offers incentives for collegiate teams and members.

Many of our shows also offer co-approved AQHA Ranch Riding and AQHA Versatility Ranch Horse classes.


Stock Horse of Texas is a strategic marketing alliance partner with AQHA, recognizing SHTX as the leader in the stock horse industry.
