Hi everyone!

Today was very busy, starting with a gymnastics lesson, followed by three lectures and the usual care and feeding of the horses. Since there was a vast amount of information conveyed to the riders and clinic auditors during each segment , and it would be virtually impossible to communicate all of the information to you, I decided to share some of the significant quotes of the day, so you can get an idea about my clinic experience.

George H. Morris "The crest release - you need to outgrow it. Old habits die hard. You retard the horses movement with the crest release."

Dr. Timothy Ober "Try to keep your horse from limping. You as the rider are responsible for your horse's soundness."

Dr. Katie Young "Maturity at time of harvest is the most important factor influencing the quality of hay. As the plant gets older, the fiber becomes less digestible."

Catch up with me tomorrow with another update on the clinic!
Talk to you then,
Maria Schaub

george is really determined that riders start using automatic release when they are ready.
i see it every month in PH.
what is your horse like? and who are the other mentor grooms?
how is george different to your other trainers like frank and is he really as much of a perfectionist as he seems to be?
thanks for writing about the clinic on your blog!!
i hope you enjoy the rest of the clinic (:
