Lake View Terrace, CA - After spending the weekend in Oregon, George Morris is traveling south for his annual clinic at Archie Cox's Brookway Stables. Scheduled for December 9th and 10th, the clinic will be held at Middle Ranch in the San Fernando Valley. The legendary horseman and coach will be instilling the foundations of good horsemanship to eager riders and auditors from South Carolina and surrounding areas.
After retiring as Chef d'Equipe of the United States Show Jumping Team, Morris has set his sights on developing the future of the sport by conducting clinics around the world. Focusing on helping riders develop correct form and function, Morris has often been referred to as the founding father of hunt seat equitation. Second to none, his teachings, technique and style are revered around the world. Over the course of his career, Morris has been highly successful as a rider, coach, clinician, author and judge.
"We are excited every year for this clinic," said Lexi Wedemeyer of Brookway Stables. "It is a good end of the year event after show season. Riders can fix different habits, and it's a nice way to reinforce different skills."
While spots to participate as a rider in the clinic filled up immediately, auditor positions are still available to gain knowledge from the esteemed Morris through observation. A waiting list is also available for riders should spots open up. Auditor spots are offered for $60 per day, which includes snacks throughout the day and lunch.
The daily clinic schedule will begin with the first group of intermediate riders at 9:00 a.m., followed by advanced-intermediate riders at 11 a.m. The final group of advanced riders will commence at 2:00 p.m.
