George Morris returns to Beverly Equestrian September 12th to 14th to teach a 3-day clinic focused on classical horsemanship over fences. Consistent with its core principals of preserving open land for equestrian pursuits and promoting the education of horse people and riders, Beverly is proud to bring clinicians who are each renowned in their respective fields to riders in the Piedmont area.
George Morris needs no introduction: George has represented the United States in many international equestrian competitions as both a rider and coach. In 1959, his team won the gold medal in the Pan American Games, and he won a team silver medal at the 1960 Rome Olympics. He coached United States teams to
individual and team silver medals at the 2006 FEI World Equestrian Games. In 2008, he coached the team that won the team gold medal at the Olympic Games in Hong Kong as well as the team member who won the individual bronze medal. Now, George spends his time giving high-profile clinics to riders.
The clinic will run Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday, high to low, and classes are limited to 8 riders. There will be three classes each day:
A high class (3'6") starting at 9:00 am,
A medium class (3'0") starting at 11:00 am, and
A low class (2'6") starting at 2:30 pm.
The cost for the three-day clinic is $995. Please note that start times are approximate. With the exception of riders in the high class, riders should be prepared to start up to 20 minutes earlier or later than indicated on the schedule.
All lessons will be taught in Beverly's 200X100 lighted indoor arena with state-of-the-art footing. There are no private sessions in this clinic.
