SHTX consists of four classes: Ranch Riding, Ranch Trail, Reining and Working Cow Horse. There are Open, Non Pro, Limited Non Pro, Intermediate Non Pro, Novice, Youth and Junior horse divisions. 


Stock Horse of Texas has been putting clinics and shows on since 1996. In 2005, the Late Dr. Kris Wilson was teaching stock horse classes at Texas Tech University and started the "team" concept by bringing a group of individuals to a SHTX show all clad in matching black shirts with the Texas Tech logo on the back. His idea of a competitive venue for college students to show has grown into a collegiate program with more than a dozen schools.

Any rider enrolled as a full-time college student is eligible to compete as a collegiate rider. A group of collegiate riders from the same school can compete on a collegiate team. Team awards are presented at all collegiate-approved shows, and collegiate riders can earn individual awards in their respective collegiate division, as well as Year End collegiate awards. -SHTX
