The Stock Horse of Texas Association was created to promote and support the concept of the versatile stock horse. The strength in this concept lies in the skills developed by horse and rider in four disciplines: Reining, Pleasure, Trail, and Working Cow Horse. An all-around stock horse can handle a variety of situations with ease and athleticism, using a natural movement attitude.

The Stock Horse of Texas program 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. Show divisions include Youth, Novice, Limited Non Pro, Junior Horse, Non Pro, and Open. Stock Horse of Texas also offers incentives for collegiate teams and members. Clinics focus on creating a ‘broke’, functional stock horse that is a pleasure to ride. These clinics promote learning in a relaxed atmosphere that suits both beginner riders and advanced competitors. Premiere horse industry clinicians are regular teachers at clinics – an unmatched value to members.

Stock Horse of Texas is the oldest versatile stock horse association in the country – a true original that continues to innovate. Join us in promoting the concept of the all-around stock horse.


“Helping People Ride a Better Horse” since 1996.
