As one of this country’s leading horsemen and clinicians, Chris Cox has spent a lifetime learning from the greatest teachers of all, the horse. Raised on a cattle ranch in the wilds of Australia, Chris has had opportunities that most horsemen of this day and age will never experience. With only horses for transportation, and a cattle ranch as his life, Chris learned at an early age how to appreciate the abilities and tradition of the great men and horses around him.
With his practical, straightforward approach, Chris teaches horse people how to get results. Influenced in his early years by both the English and Western traditions, he has implemented a proven style and technique that can be applied universally across all disciplines.
Chris has been conducting clinics and demonstrations for over 28 years. While teaching the principles and methods behind his authentic horsemanship, Chris has also become a successful trainer/breeder and major competitor in the cutting horse world and also competes in Reined Cow Horse events and team roping when his schedule allows. As a four time undefeated Road to the Horse World Champion he continues to travel the world spreading his message. In 2015, Chris had the honor of being inducted into the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame. Chris has dedicated his life to teaching horsemen and women in the hope that they will come to understand and appreciate horses in their lives. Chris Cox demonstrates, with dedication and a mutual respect, to achieve a versatile and willing partnership between horse and human.
