I had the most wonderful opportunty to attend the USHJA Trainers Symposium with George Morris on November 6, 7 and 8, 2009.
George Morris is absolutely incredible and he can still ride. He proved it several times a day, demonstrating to us the correct way of riding on several different horses. Your horse has to be scrupulously straight, forward and moving off all your aids. Your horse has to have self carriage. Watch out students there will be no more butt grabbers!!! Take contact of your horse's mouth, Get up off your horse's back and learn to ride with your leg.
