Wellington, FL – Dec. 24, 2016 – For legendary horseman and coach George Morris, sharing his secrets for success goes beyond U.S. borders. Morris will be traveling to Australia for the new year to give riders and auditors the opportunity to learn from the best in the business.

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. This year, the renowned rider and instructor published his autobiography, UNRELENTING -The Real Story: Horses, Bright Lights, and My Pursuit of Excellence.

Vicki Roycroft, who will be hosting two of Morris’ clinics, commented, “I always look forward to George’s visits, as every time I learn something new. In this sport, one never stops learning, and after 40 odd years and three Olympics, I still find there is more to know. George has a hard core fan base out here led by me and other Olympic and World Games participants, Rod Brown and Chris Chugg.”

Morris’ schedule will include:

Dec. 30 – Jan. 1: Vicki Roycroft
Roycroft Stables

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.

While the spots for the clinics filled up immediately, auditor positions are still available to gain knowledge from the esteemed Morris through observation, and a waiting list is available for riders should a spot become available.
