Pacific, Mo. – October 10, 2017 – George Morris is continuing his tour of the country this fall, with his next stop in Pacific, Missouri. Morris will be heading to the Midwest to conduct a clinic at Brody Robertson’s Alamonte Show Stables. The event runs October 13-15, 2017, during which the legendary horseman and coach will be instilling the foundations of good horsemanship. Riders and auditors will also have a chance 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.
“It doesn’t matter where George is in the world, he gives every group at every clinic his absolute best,” said Robertson. “Michael Jordan once said that, ‘There is going to be someone in this audience tonight that this will be there only chance to see me play live, and I want them to get a Michael Jordan performance.’ George is the same way. It doesn’t matter if he’s helping a 2’6” rider or an Olympian; everyone gets George’s all. That’s what we appreciate so much.”
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. Auditor spots are offered for $100 per day, which includes lunch in the afternoon.
The daily clinic schedule will begin with the first group of 1.00m at 9:00 a.m., followed by 1.10m riders at 11:00 a.m. The final group of 1.20m riders will commence at 2:30 p.m.
