Focusing on helping riders develop correct form and function, Morris has often been referred to as the founding father of hunt seat equitation. Second to none, his teachings, technique and style are revered around the world. Over the course of his career, Morris has been highly successful as a rider, coach, clinician, author and judge.

 

While the spots for the clinics filled up immediately, auditor positions are still available to gain knowledge from the esteemed Morris through observation, and a waiting list is available for riders should a spot become available.

 

The daily clinic schedule will include the first group of intermediate riders at 9:00 a.m., followed by advanced riders at 11 a.m. The final group of jumper riders will commence at 2:00 p.m.
