Lexington, Ky. - May 17, 2016 -
The Kentucky Horse Shows are pleased to announce that they will be hosting a book signing with George H. Morris for his newly released autobiography Unrelenting: The Real Story: Horses, Bright Lights and My Pursuit of Excellence.
The book signing will be held on the afternoon of Saturday, May 21, during the $5,000 Hallway Feeds USHJA National Hunter Derby. The class is the second in the five-part series, which features the $15,000 Hallway Feeds Leading Rider Bonus. During the Kentucky Spring Classic, the derby will be held in the Stonelea Ring at the Kentucky Horse Park.
A horse lover, rider, carouser, competitor, taskmaster, dreamer, teacher, and visionary, George Morris has been ever-present on the rarified stage of the international riding elite for most of the 70 years he's been in the saddle. He has represented our country as an athlete and a coach and, at one time or another, instructed many of our nation's best horsemen and women. His carefully chosen, perfectly enunciated words are notoriously powerful. They can raise you up or cut you to the quick. His approval can be a rainmaker; his derision can end a career.
But as much as people know and respect (or, perhaps, fear) the public face of George Morris, he has lived, in other ways, a remarkably private life, keeping his own personal struggles with insecurity, with ambition, and with love behind closed doors. It is only now that he has chosen, in his own words, to share the totality of his life-the very public and the incredibly private-with the world in Unrelenting: The Real Story: Horses, Bright Lights and My Pursuit of Excellence. This engrossing autobiography, the real story of the godlike George Morris, beautifully demonstrates his ultimate humanity.
