Horsemastership Clinic with George Morris
The Herpes outbreak in Wellington, Florida, can be eradicated if the horses are handled with proper hygiene, exercised in a controlled setting and self-contained until the quarantine is lifted. The vetenarians handling the situation have previous experience with the illness and were successful at stopping the spread of the virus. The situation is being closely monitored by the proper authorities.
Now, we need to pray, sit and wait.
The first in a series of blogs about the Horsemastership program with George Morris scheduled for January 15-20, 2007, Palm Beach Polo, Wellington, this blog will briefly talk about training with George Morris and my own thoughts about him.
Energy and determination are the words often used to describe the great George Morris. What can be learned from a man who has the influence to shape the show jumping world as we know it today? He is a leader who understands the winning edge and, who has specific goals for our Olympic team and the future show jumpers of our country. He has the drive, the dreams, the skill and the ambition to be prestige-conscious which has positively influenced our current Olympic team.
So what is it about his experiences that are so interesting to someone like me? He is persistent and passionate, a person who has the ability to stay focused on a task until it is complete and that, as well as his highly regarded accomplishments, directly influences my excitement about my "first" training session with him in January.
The next blog will cover more of my thoughts about the sessions in January.
Talk to you soon!
