Camden, SC – August 30, 2017 – The South Carolina Equestrian Park is preparing to host a George H. Morris clinic this weekend at their beautiful facility. Organized by Sherry Pace, the workshop will be held September 1-3, 2017. The legendary horseman and coach will be instilling the foundations of good horsemanship to eager riders and auditors from South Carolina and surrounding areas.
The Tack Room and Finish Line will also be hosting an ice cream social and a book signing on Saturday evening, September 2 for Morris’ autobiography UNRELENTING -The Real Story: Horses, Bright Lights, and My Pursuit of Excellence.

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 am extremely excited to have George come to South Carolina,” said Pace. “This is my twelfth year working with him. The knowledge that he brings to our local trainers is immeasurable. Everyone can learn something from him at every level. We’re fortunate to have him in our area and I just can’t say enough about how pleased I am and how excited everyone is to have him here.”
While spots to participate as a rider in the clinic filled up immediately, auditor positions are still available to gain knowledge from the esteemed Morris through observation. A waiting list is also available for riders should spots open up. Auditor spots are offered for $90 per day.
The daily clinic schedule will begin with the first group of intermediate riders at 9:00 a.m., followed by advanced-intermediate riders at 11 a.m. The final group of advanced riders will commence at 2:00 p.m.
