|The Sam Houston State University Department of Agricultural and Industrial Sciences is proud to announce the SHSU Ranch Horse Team. The team will be comprised of SHSU students (any major) and will be coached by Dr. Matt McMillan. The students will travel to several competitions to compete and promote Sam Houston State University. The team will provide a positive educational environment in which students will grow as ambassadors and professionals in the agricultural industry.
|• To promote Sam Houston State University and the Department of Agricultural and Industrial Sciences through competitions in various ranch horse events.
• To increase the practical experience of students in a competitive atmosphere, as well as place them in an ambassador role.
• To preserve and promote Texas' deep ranching heritage.
In addition to preserving the original goals of the Stock Horse of Texas Association, the purpose of the Collegiate Division is to enhance the education of students interested in the stock horse, and to use the horse as a means to teach students how to represent themselves with responsibility, character and teamwork. Therefore, it is encouraged that team members represent themselves and their school at all times in a manner of honor and integrity.
