Didn’t make it out to audit? These replays are the next best thing.
The 2016 George H. Morris Horsemastership Training Session presented by the USHJA was held December 31 – January 2 at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington, Florida. While George himself was not teaching this year, 12 lucky young riders were invited to train with top riders and instructors.
The mounted sessions began with flatwork with U.S. Olympic dressage medalist Christine Traurig. The next day, Beezie Madden, four-time USEF Equestrian of the Year, did a flatwork and gymnastics demonstration before instructing the students using similar exercises. On the final day, Olympic show jumper Laura Kraut coached the students through multiple show jumping rounds in a Nations Cup style team competition.
There is plenty of knowledge to be gleaned from watching the replays. Here are the links, courtesy of the USEF.
