Official State Horseshoe Tournament of Alabama

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; both the festival and the tournament were discontinued after a few years.  All state sports

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).
