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. Shows offer competitions in the four basic stock horse disciplines: Reining, Working Cow Horse, Stock Horse Pleasure and Stock Horse Trail, with some shows offering Ranch Cutting.

There is a division for every skill level, so riders can show with others of similar ability and experience.

Stock Horse of Texas is proud of alliance partnerships with AQHA, APHA, NRCHA and the National Ranch and Stock Horse Alliance.
