Waxhaw, NC - June 11, 2014 - After spending the weekend in Washington State, George Morris will now head south to Sims Hill Farm to teach a clinic in Waxhaw, NC. The event runs June 13-15, 2014, during which the legendary horseman and coach will be instilling the foundations of good horsemanship for riders and auditors.
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.
"We are honored to have George Morris at Sims Hill Farm. Anytime anyone gets the opportunity to work with him they should," said trainer Mike Henaghan. "He is the creator of much of the riding world we know today. I always take advantage of having George available, and anyone that is serious about his or her riding should take advantage of him as a teacher."
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, or $250 for all three days, which includes a catered lunch each day.
The daily clinic schedule will begin with the first group of beginner riders at 9:00 a.m., followed by intermediate riders at 11:00 a.m. The final group of advanced riders will commence at 2:00 p.m.
