About The Organization
Changing Lives Through Horsemanship
From Lead Changes Founder, Chris Cox:
“I am honored and excited to share with you an idea Barb and I have to use the horse to help young people of our country become better and more responsible future leaders. Those of you who know me, know that I believe that the horse is a tool to teach young people about leadership, responsibility and life in general.” – Chris Cox
Let’s Gallop Together To A Better Future – Horsemanship
Our goals are aggressive. Support from many caring friends and partners is critical to ensure the future of Lead Changes.
Beyond the funding to operate boy’s camps and girl’s camps, the growth of our endowment fund will allow the organization to continue to work towards a permanent youth camp and provide operating funds.
Other giving opportunities include contributions to cover the costs for youth who cannot afford to attend Lead Changes Horsemanship and Leadership Youth Camp. This is your opportunity to open an incredible, unforgettable door of opportunity for a child or teen whose life may be filled with hardship. Please contact us about your interest or donate today to share the great gift of camp.
Together we can change the lives of young people in our country! We believe that horses are a unique way to teach leadership and integrity while instilling important values for their individual journeys in life.
Since the inception of Lead Changes, we have invited and supported young girls and boys from around the country to come the Triangle C Ranch outside Dubois, Wyoming to participate in our youth horsemanship and leadership camps. The results have been extraordinary. We have amazing testimonies about the impact the camp has had on their lives, including—
“Thank you for this life changing experience. I learned that you can’t always be so anxious. Just be calm and think positive”. Piper B.
“Thank you for letting me be able to go to your camp and teaching me so many things. Thank you to JT and Hanna for being the best counselors and role models. Thank you to all the staff for making me feel at home and Nancy’s amazing cooking. Thank you to all the horses, especially Hunter, for putting up with all my mistakes and teaching me that horses really do listen”. Cecilia M.
As a result of these success stories, we have created Lead Changes to enable more youth to attend our leadership camps through scholarship opportunities. We have created a 501(C)(3) organization, and you will see our board of directors listed below. They are respected leaders who are committed to horses and the future of the youth of America.
