Kalispell, MT – July 28, 2015 – As the summer begins to heat up, legendary horseman and coach George Morris will be heading to Northwest Montana. This week, he will be at Larkspur Farm in Kalispell, Montana, July 31- August 2, 2015. Organized by Bryna Closson, Morris will be teaching at the venue to instill the foundations of good horsemanship in the riders and auditors.
After retiring as Chef d’Equipe of the United States Show Jumping Team, Morris has set his sights on developing the future of the sport by conducting clinics around the world. 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.

“I have had the privilege of riding in George’s clinics for the past 13 years,” said Closson. “His system has served as the inspiration and basis for my program. He is absolutely the best! We are truly honored to have him coming to our farm in Northwest Montana.”
While most of the spots to participate as a rider in the clinic filled up immediately, there are still openings in the advanced jumper group. Auditor positions are also still available to gain knowledge from the esteemed Morris through observation. Auditor spots are $75 per day, and breakfast and lunch will be available for purchase.
The daily clinic schedule will begin with the first group of intermediate riders will be at 9:00 a.m., followed by advanced riders at 11:00 a.m. The final group of jumper riders will commence at 2:00 p.m.
Larkspur Farm would like to extend a special thanks the following contributors for supporting the riders: Enjoy Yums all natural horse treats, Finish Line, Equine Organix, A Horse Box, The Plaid Horse Magazine, and Alberta Show Jumpers Magazine.
