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.

Upcoming Shows!

Amarillo, Texas

 

SHOW SCHEDULE: click here

***With all of the Open classes moving to Thursday at SHTX shows in 2024, this freed up considerable time in our schedule to wrap up the show on Saturday around 6pm. We hoped these scheduling changes would help members drive home on Sunday morning when it was cool & also accomodate those traveling to the NRCHA major event in Tulsa on Sunday.
