Ottawa, Ontario – Oct. 4, 2016 – This weekend, George Morris will be traveling to Caledon, Ontario in Canada to conduct a three-day clinic. Scheduled to begin Friday, Oct. 7, the Caledon Pan Am Equestrian Park will host the legendary horseman as he instills the foundations of good horsemanship to riders and auditors. On Saturday, Oct. 8, at 4:30 p.m. participants will have an opportunity to get their copy of Morris’ autobiography, UNRELENTING -The Real Story: Horses, Bright Lights, and My Pursuit of Excellence, signed by the renowned rider and instructor himself.
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. 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.
“I am always excited to see George,” said organizer Danny Forbes. “It’s always wonderful to have him here for a clinic, and every time he comes I get to meet some of the best riders and trainers in the area.”
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 spots open up. If purchased in advance, auditor spots are offered for $75 per day, or $200 for the weekend. The cost will be $100 per day at the door.
A buffet-style lunch will be available each day for $15 per person, and free coffee will be provided by Mckee Pownall Veterinary Service.
The daily clinic schedule will begin with the first group of riders at 9:00 a.m., followed by a group at 11:00 a.m. The final group of advanced riders will commence at 2:00 p.m.
