Gateway, MT - The northwest will once again be welcoming George Morris. Next week, Morris will be traveling to Gateway, Montana for two weeks of clinics at Holloway's Pretty Good Horse Barn. Glena deRham will be hosting Morris for two clinics, with the first event running July 31 - August 2 and the second section to be held August 7-9, 2014. The legendary horseman and coach will be instilling the foundations of good horsemanship for riders and auditors.
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.
"I am excited to have George coming because he's a premiere teach, trainer and rider," said deRham. "He's a long-time friend of mine, and I think he gives everybody an idea of good training for the horse, good horsemanship and riding properly. He's a world-class trainer; there are riders coming from Canada and all over the northwest. Montana is very exited to be welcoming him to our state. "
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 $75 per day, which includes six hours or more of Morris' teaching and training.
The first week will be focused on helping beginner riders, with an emphasis on flatwork and cavalettis. During the second week, the daily clinic schedule will begin with the first group of beginner riders at 9:00 a.m., followed by intermediate riders at 11:00 a.m. The final group of advanced riders will commence at 2:00 p.m.
