"Practice doesn't make perfect; perfect practice makes perfect," said George Morris on Day 3 of the George H. Morris Horsemastership Clinic, as his students practiced finding distances, forming a connection with their horses, and more.
On Day 2 of his clinic, George Morris stressed the fundamental importance of keeping a light, forward seat as the riders worked their horses over trot fences, combinations, liverpools and more.
With the first day devoted to flatwork, Morris focused on effective use of the aids to ensure the horse is working correctly.
Riders put together courses and use the knowledge they gained throughout the week to ride accurately and smoothly.
