Stock horse champs

Competing late in the semester at the American Stock Horse Association Collegiate and National Show in Sweetwater, Texas — and for the first time in Division 1 — MTSU’s stock horse team defeated Texas Tech University to earn the national title.

In a 10-team field of teams from around the country, MTSU riders earned the Division 2 Reserve Champion national title at the Hughes Ranch Traders National Intercollegiate Ranch and Stock Horse National Championship in Amarillo, Texas. MTSU also received a $1,000 marketing package for its ranch horse program.

Eight MTSU students competed in the AHSA event held in the Nolan County Coliseum in Sweetwater, Texas, capturing eight individual national awards and the coveted national title. Events included cow horse, pleasure, reining and trail.
