Ranch Horse Team

About The Team

In 2006, the Department of Animal Science at Texas A&M University began the Stock Horse Team program.  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 equine program at Texas A&M University. In 2020 the team was renamed to the Ranch Horse team to spotlight the diversity within the team. The Ranch Horse Team is dedicated to promoting Texas A&M University and the equine industry through collegiate competitions in ranch and stock horse shows throughout the United States. Stock horse shows consist of trail, ranch pleasure, reining, and working cowhorse events.

As a member of the Texas A&M Ranch Horse Team students learn positive horsemanship skills from the team coach and various other equine professionals. These skills are demonstrated at competitions against other colleges through American Stock Horse Association (ASHA), National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA) and Stock Horse of Texas (SHTX). The team also strives to be active members of the stock horse community as well as ambassadors for Texas A&M’s Animal Science Department.

Mission Statement

“We are a group of hardworking individuals, competing for team success in a supportive and fun environment.  Our goal is to improve with each ride, perform to the best of our ability and represent our team and University through the core values.”
