Antioch, IL - November 25, 2016 – Riders got right down to work and right back to basics on day one at the George H. Morris clinic held at Rush and Caroline Weeden’s Annali-Brookwood Farm. Organized by Diane Carney/Telluride, the clinic runs through Sunday, November 27th with a book signing for Morris’ new book, UNRELENTING, on Saturday at 5:30pm.
 
Morris reviewed proper flat work and emphasized diagonal aids with the three groups of riders who were eager to learn from the legendary coach.  The 10’ water was part of the skill test on the opening day along with a serpentine over jumps, a six-stride line with a triple bar and a triple combination with a solid wall.

A packed auditor gallery attentively watched Morris demonstrate leg to hand aids, then asking riders to do the same. The riders all had one goal in common, which was to learn more from the master and continue to improve their horse IQ.
