    LOL--my trainer, at the age of 75, is his female equivalent: "Don't pet him! He doesn't deserve petting! He deserves to be petted with a 2x4!"

    haha, I totally remember that lesson last year, I especially loved when he said the "country jerk" thing, I almost fell off my horse laughing. He kept saying that, and some varients, like "sloppy jerk" . The funny thing was that the going off course thing happened right after I did the course and a few other people did too, so it was totally deserved! You shouldn't go off course in a clinic with GM if you aren't the first person to go! He also likes to bleet like a sheep at riders because he says people just follow the herd like sheep, so it cracks me up to hear him yelling "don't be a sheep!".

    FYI-

    His clinic schedule for this fall is on page 83 of the 8/29 Chronicle, or go to www.ghmclinics.com for the list.

    Well worth it if you get the chance!

    OMG, the yawning thing is hilarious!!! So is the love fest. I give my horse the lovefest when he's carried me around better than I rode him. THAT deserves a lovefest!

    I'm dying to take from him.....too bad he never hits Dallas!

    Being a 43 years old man, 6'4 tall, around 225 so not bad for height, riding a 16 hand Hanno x mare, jumping between level 3 and 4 working on 5. I'm sure I would get an earful from him....

    Sadly, the Camden Equestrian Center closed. So now they're having it at the T.E Garrison Arena in Clemson.

    Okay...this one is kinda gross if taken out of context but back in the 70's he hollared to a student in the schooling ring at a show "Sit deep in the crotch and flow!"!! We all just about fell off our horses! That one has never been forgotten!

    I loved his quote... "Do as little as possible, but as much as necessary" and just a funny one...he got on a horse in a clinic I was in once...yeah he didnt like the saddle...his words were, "This saddle is a ball crusher!!!" Everyone died laughing!
    That was my Butet he was talking about. That was so hilarious. I'll never forget that. I'm so bummed I wont be there with you all this month!

    I was in the ring during the Camden yawning incident...too funny! The rest of the time it took all the strength I had NOT to yawn!

    "Talking to you is like a brick wall."

    "There goes Peter, the bird-brain boy."

    "Watch someone you think might know what they're doing." (This after he called for a half-turn in reverse, and me, my friend and a couple of others were the only ones who did it right.

    "Poochie! Hey, poochie! Someone's poochie!" (This after my naughty JRT got loose and ran into the ring and right up to him...as if there weren't fifty million other people my dog could have pestered!)

    "This mare needs more bit. Nip her! What kind of bit do you have? Oh, a knife edge? I was going to suggest that! She's a strong mare!"
