The Brazos County Expo in Bryan, Texas was once again home to the 2022 Special Olympics Texas (SOTX) Annual Equestrian Competition.

The last competition was held in 2019 and was canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.

Over 130 athletes from across the state are competing in a series of events including showmanship, working trails, western equitation, English equitation, Drill Team and more.

The mission of the Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
