SHTX Youth members enjoy riding together, learning at clinics, competing at shows and helping with certain events. Often SHTX youth ambassadors are available to help members unload or assist at shows when needed. The Youth meet at least once annually to elect officers and establish goals for the youth association. SHTX Youth also help with clinics, such as the free Stock Horse Trail clinic offered each year at the Texas State 4-H Horse Show.
New for 2021!
SHTX knows the youth are the future of our association and the equine industry. In 2021, we are committed to enhancing the opportunities of SHTX youth through leadership experiences, community service opportunities and fun activities!

Be sure you read the requirements and duties of each office, as well as the SHTX Youth Code of Conduct policy.
