George H. Morris was flipping through the Oct. 24 & 31 issue of the Chronicle when a photograph stopped him and inspired him to call into the Chronicle office to sing the praises of the rider.

It wasn’t a photo of a famous equitation rider or a grand prix jumper. It was eventer Kelsey Horn riding Swingtown to the win in the 4-year-old division of the U.S. Eventing Association’s Young Event Horse West Coast Championship (Calif.).

Our columnist spent a week with George Morris helping to educate young riders and sees the future top tier strengthening.

I was honored to spend a week being part of the fourth annual George H. Morris Horsemastership Training Session in Wellington, Fla., Jan. 5-10. I’m extremely proud of what George’s idea has grown into in the past few years, and I feel it fills a void in our country that we’ve ignored for many years and perhaps even fostered.
