Stock Horse Team
In the Fall of 2006, the Department of Animal Science at Texas A&M University began a new program focusing on the ever-growing segment of the horse industry known as the stock horses or ranch horses. This program is designed to teach students the principles of training and showing horses in stock horse competitions. With the emphasis always on learning and improving the student’s riding and training skills, this program has become a popular and important part of the total horse teaching program at Texas A&M University. In April of 2007, the first Intercollegiate Stock Horse Competition was held and Texas A&M was one of six colleges to compete. More competitions between colleges, always with the emphasis on learning through competing, have been planned.
Students interested in the Stock Horse Team should enroll in ANSC 489. For more information, please contact Dr. Dennis Sigler at 979-845-7731.
