 Established in 2016, the University of Arkansas Ranch Horse Team was developed in the Bumpers College Department of Animal Science. This program focuses on the rapidly growing segment of the equine industry known as the stock horse or ranch horse. This program is designed to teach students the principles of training and showing a horse and to have the opportunity to practice and/or compete in ranch horse competition.

The team will consist mostly of hands-on participation at the Whitaker Arena as well as various competition and ranch sites around the region and country. Students learn the value of the horse in livestock production as well as the competition portion of the equine industry. The team currently competes through American Stock Horse Association (ASHA), National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA) and the Arkansas Ranch Horse Association (ARSHA).
