Brookwood Farm To Host the George H. Morris Chicago Clinic 

 
Decades of Tradition November 23 - 25, 2018

George H. Morris heads to Rush Weeden's Brookwood Farm in Antioch, Illinois, November 23 - 25, 2018.

Antioch, IL –October 15, 2018 – Brookwood Farm and Rush Weeden welcome the George H. Morris Chicago Clinic November 23-25, 2018. The clinic has been a Thanksgiving weekend tradition in the Chicago area for over 30 years, coordinated by Diane Carney/Telluride, drawing 24 talented riders and over 300 auditors to watch the legendary Morris each year.

 
Rush Weeden and clinic coordinator Diane Carney have partnered for many years to host the George H. Morris Chicago Clinic.  

The caliber of the Chicago clinic is always top-notch, with numerous professionals getting in on the education. Professionals this year include:

Peter Lombardo - Frontier Farms - Moorpark, CA
Liz Atkins - Benchmark Stables - Hampshire, IL
Melissa Campbell Donnelly - Just A Folly Farm - Oxford, MI
Michael Burnett - Burnett Farms - Lebanon, IN
Serah Vogus - Millcreek - Antioch, IL
Ryan Sassmansshausen - Kinvarra Farm - St. Charles, IL

The clinic consists of challenging exercises from 1.10m to 1.30m and always includes the 10’ water jump. In the history of the clinic, riders such as Weeden, who has ridden in the clinic himself many years, can recollect special jumps that have shown up in the clinic over the years such as the Chinese wall from the Hong Kong Olympics to the famous Shamu, who makes his appearance yearly. Carney mentioned there will be a new jump this year from the World Equestrian Games.
