Buffalo, N.Y. – Nov. 8, 2018 – Legendary horseman and trainer George H. Morris will return to the Buffalo Therapeutic Riding Center (BTRC) Nov. 9–11 for his 29th annual clinic!
Often referred to as the “founding father of equitation,” Morris will teach in a personal setting with three groups of riders at varying levels: intermediate, jumper and advanced. The clinic is full for riders but auditor spots are still available!
As part of the USHJA Trainer Certification Program, this clinic is one of the most anticipated events for equestrians looking to improve their riding techniques and broaden their knowledge of the sport from a true legend.
For those who have always wanted to watch world-class training and instruction from the esteemed horseman and rider firsthand, auditing spaces are $250 per person for all three days or $90 per person each day.
If an auditor would like credit for the USHJA Trainer Certification Program, the cost is $300 for all three days. The BTRC is still accepting auditor applications. Information and applications to attend this year’s clinic can be found here.
All of the BTRC’s clinics and events serve as fundraisers for its programs aimed at providing children with special needs the chance to ride and care for horses. Past clinicians include Rodney Jenkins, Buck Brannaman, Melanie Smith Taylor and Beezie Madden.
Executive director of the BTRC, Susie Schoellkopf, has hosted the clinic with Morris for over 25 years. Schoellkopf admires Morris’ focus on getting back to the basics and strongly believes his teachings help raise the standards of training and instruction in the United States.
In addition, the BTRC is proud to welcome back Emma Walters, who will be participating in the advanced group, to this year’s clinic fresh off her championship in the extremely competitive Junior 16–17 3’3″ Hunter division, earning the overall Junior 3’3″ Hunter Grand Champion title, at the National Horse Show with the BTRC’s own Crisp.
The BTRC houses both the Buffalo Equestrian Center as well as SBS Farms, Inc. Built in 1922, the 160-stall facility is a historical landmark, with its unique English Tudor and Gothic-style architecture. For more information on the Buffalo Therapeutic Riding Center, please visit www.thebtrc.org.
