Horsemastership Clinic with George Morris

Hi, everyone!

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!

Best wishes working with George. I always took clinics with him even as a young trainer in Southern California.

I am the inventor of the MDC Intelligent Stirrup currently used by Beezie Madden, Margie Engel, Schuyler Riley, Kim Prince.....I am always interested in placing my stirrups with influential riders and trainers for their consideration.

I would like to make a pair of my stirrups available to you if you would care to give them a try. They may be seen at Many top riders give their opionions at the site as well.

Please contact me at 831-393-0588 or should you have interest.

I audited a George Morris' clinic recently and it was AMAZING. He's incredibly well spoken, works wonders with all the horses he gets on, and is a very effective teacher.

I agree with everything you said about him! I hope working with him turns out to be a great experience for you.

Hopefully everything in Florida gets cleared up...I know some people who were really looking forward to WEF.

Anyway, best wishes!

for xmas i got the horse power dvd and i love watching all of u ride again! but i have a ? i have been riding with my instructor for a little over two years and she is the only instructor i've ever had. she's gotten me to 2 foot hunters at the local h/j associtation. lately i've been working really hard to get ready for next year doing 2 foot on a harder horse, but i have not been improving lately. i've talked about it to my sister who shows too and my best friend who is in my division. they both agree they are not really getting anywhere. do you think it's just a slump that needs time, or do i need to look for another instructor? how do i know? please help! thanx!

I read the Bates Horsemanship Clinic in Practical Horseman this month. It was really interesting. I saw him give a clinic at the Equine Affaire in Massachusetts last November or the year before, it was awesome to see him teach. I learned a lot. I love reading your blog, it's interesting and I learn some things from it! I admire you a lot and always look up to you when I'm in hard times while riding. Keep up the great work!
