"We are always thrilled to have George join us at the Beverly Equestrian Center," noted Darrin Mollett. "The clinic brings together all of the best people in our area and beyond from multiple disciplines. It's always really interesting to see how he teaches the different riders and horses. His method is the same and it works for all disciplines. All the riders and horses continue to improve throughout the clinic, which is fun to watch."
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 other openings become available. Auditor spots are available for $75 per day.
