The Magnificent 7 All-Around Stock Horse Championship is a competition based on an event originally called the World’s Championship All-Around Stock Horse Contest, crafted by Bobby Ingersoll in the 1970s and was actively supported by Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame members Cotton Rosser and Walt Rodman. The contest was held periodically over the years, until Western States Horse Expo CEO and founder Miki Nelsen, Bill Lefty and others resurrected and revitalized the event, giving it a “forever home” at the Western States Horse Expo.

Each year the best stock horses and their riders converge on the Western States Horse Expo from all across America for an intense riding competition, where each horse/human team will demonstrate their skill and versatility in four events: herd work, rein work, steer stopping and fence work. The action peaks in the final rounds of competition where seven of best teams compete to take home a hefty cash prize, a great buckle, and the title of Magnificent 7 All-Around Stock Horse Champion. This is a unique opportunity to see the very best equestrian athletes compete in an exciting competition that you will talk about for years to come!
