  • George Williams Clinics

    Good morning! I got this question from someone and thought I'd ask it on the forum. Is George Williams "western dressage rider friendly" or does he prefer to work with traditional dressage riders? I'm asking for someone thinking of hosting a clinic with him that they expect to have western dressage riders apply for.

    I'm guessing he would work with anyone willing to learn but I wasn't sure. Thx for any feedback that anyone can give me.

    Dont know specifically, but he has long been leader in USDF, and I'd doubt he would have a problem. Friend should just call and ask him.

      While I am not familiar with the clinician in question, I agree with 2tempe
      Call & ask.

      Some time ago, I posted a similar question re: taking my TWH to a clinic with Jeff Ashton Moore - co-author of USDF Judges handbook.

      Got a lot of pearl-clutching responses, then someone suggested I call him.
      So I did & left my question with whoever answered my call.
      Then got a call back from Himself.
      He merely asked "Is it a horse? If so, I can work with you both".
      And he did.

          And perfectly illustrates JAM's dry humor.

          If you ever get an opportunity to ride in one of his clinics, DO!
          I am a physical learner, I usually need to do a thing to learn it.
          He is the only clinician I learn from by auditing.

            Got to see him teach last year at the FEI Conference. He was wonderful.

              I took a lesson with him once. I can't remember much about it......so it obviously was not too memorable.

              I was riding a young stallion and the only thing I remember about that day was almost getting run over by a local dressage trainer riding a huge mare in raging heat while I was standing mounted in a corner of the arena by the auditor area waiting to go in to my lesson.

              Do not confuse motion and progress. A rocking horse keeps moving but does not make any progress.

                George williams is a teacher. Give him a horse and rider, and he will teach.

                Teachers are pathologically unable to be quiet.
                Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

                Remember the horse does all the work, we just sit there and look pretty.

                  Hehe. I'm a teacher. I love being taught by a teacher. I challenge anyone to give me "too many words."

                  I appreciate this review of him. Thanks!
