Gold Stirrup - The Gold Stirrup Horse Show is Rodeo Austin's brightest star. A horse show for riders with special needs, Gold Stirrup allows individuals to compete for recognition and prizes.
4-H Instructional Show - Will serve as an educational clinic for 4-H exhibitors interested in pursuing a horse project or wanting to improve their horse show skills. Each exhibitor will receive direct, one-on-one feedback from an experienced horse show judge, along with written instructions and critiques. Classes offered are Stock Horse Showmanship, Stock Horse Pleasure, Stock Horse Horsemanship and Trail. Classes will be modeled after 4-H Horse shows to prepare exhibitors for the District and State Shows.
