George H. Morris is often referred to as the founding father of hunter seat equitation. He is a legend in the sport, and his clinics are a rare and unique opportunity for riders of all levels and ages to learn from the best. Morris’s most recent major accomplishment was acting as Chef d’Equipe for the U.S. Show Jumping Team and leading them to a team gold medal at the 2008 Olympic Games.
In its eleventh year, the George H. Morris clinic at the Buffalo Therapeutic Riding Center will continue to teach equestrians about proper horsemanship, correct riding, and the foundations of equitation. Beyond being a learning experience for riders, the clinic helps the BTRC give local Buffalo youth the unforgettable gift of horses. The Buffalo Therapeutic Riding Center is a non-profit organization that provides vital services to differently-abled youth riders.
