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.
Every spring, the Darlene Hicks Youth Scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior who has been active in Stock Horse of Texas. Click here for more information and application deadlines.
Youth can compete in either the Youth division (designed for more advanced riders) or the Novice Youth division (for riders with limited showing experience), as well as any other division they are eligible for.
