Home from Nationals!

April 21, 2023
The Hughes Trailer National Intercollegiate Ranch & Stock Horse Association Show has officially come to an end!
This year marks our second appearance at our national show. This show and our national association has grown tremendously in the last year and we could not be more thankful to be apart of it! There were 18 outstanding colleges and universities from across the nation represented. Our team competed against 13 of those teams in the D2 division. Our team ended up as Third D2 Team Overall????
Thank you to our sponsors, friends, family & alumni who have supported us and cheered us on as we continue to blaze new trails for the team. We could not do what we do without each and every one of you.

We are back home in Stillwater and carrying the title of D2 Division Champions for the Stock Horse of Texas Guns Up Show! 
A special highlight also goes to our rider Cassidy Allen who claimed the title of Reserve Champion Overall in the novice division.
Our trip to Lubbock was full of laughter, teammate support, and some great rides.
We are looking forward to getting back on the road in 2 weeks to head to Amarillo for our national competition.

Almost show time!

March 28, 2023
We are 3 days out from heading west to Lubbock, TX to compete at the Stock Horse of Texas Guns Up Show! All 9 of our competitive riders will be representing Oklahoma State the weekend of April 1-2nd. Stay tuned for travel and show updates!
With all of our generous supporters we are able to cover the travel, lodging, and entry fees for our entire team at this show. This truly means a lot to our riders as they work hard to maintain their horses, pave their way through school, and work additional jobs. This is an exceptionally deserving group to support!
Thank you for Supporting the Ride.
