The Young Guns of the National Western started in 2013 with a goal to facilitate young professionals gaining a better understanding of Western art and insight into how to invest in art, support the National Western Stock Show's growth, and to host fun events throughout the year, culminating in the Young Guns Reception in December. Proceeds from the Young Guns events support the National Western Scholarship Trust.

The Young Guns Reception is in December, kicking off the Stock Show season. New in 2018, the Young Guns Pop-Up Exhibit features local, emerging artists selling work in price ranges more accessible to Young Guns attendees.
