Stockton Fall Horseshoe Tournament

Alabama designated the Stockton Fall Horseshoe Tournament as the official state horseshoe tournament in 1992. The tournament was held for a few years as part of the annual Stockton festival but was then discontinued.

Horses and the culture they supported are represented by several other Alabama symbols - the state horse (racking horse), the official state horse show (The Alabama Championship Horse Show), and a state agricultural museum complete with living history blacksmith (Dothan Landmark Park).
