BUFFALO, N.Y. — The legendary George H. Morris returns to the Buffalo Therapeutic Riding Center for his 28th annual clinic Nov. 10-12.
As part of the USHJA Trainer Certification Program, this clinic is one of the most anticipated events for equestrians looking to improve their riding techniques and broaden their knowledge of the sport from a true legend.
All of the BTRC's clinics and events serve as fundraisers for its programs aimed at providing children with special needs the chance to ride and care for horses. Past clinicians include Rodney Jenkins, Buck Brannaman, Melanie Smith Taylor and Beezie Madden. The BTRC also welcomes the public to ride in or audit its many clinics.
Often referred to as the "founding father of equitation," Morris will teach in a personal setting with three groups of riders at varying levels: intermediate, jumper and advanced. Limited spots remain in the jumper and advanced sections.
Reserve a spot as soon as possible by calling 716-877-9295 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Auditing spaces are $250 per person for all three days or $90 per person each day. If an auditor would like credit for the USHJA Trainer Certification Program, the cost is $300 for all three days.
The BTRC is still accepting rider and auditor applications. Information and applications to attend this year's clinic can be found at http://www.thebtrc.org/programs/instructional-clinics/
Executive director of the Buffalo Therapeutic Riding Center, Susie Schoellkopf, has hosted the clinic with Morris for over 25 years. Schoellkopf admires Morris' focus on getting back to the basics and strongly believes his teachings help raise the standards of training and instruction in the United States.
The BTRC houses both the Buffalo Equestrian Center as well as SBS Farms, Inc. Built in 1922, the 160-stall facility is a historical landmark, with its unique English Tudor and Gothic-style architecture. For more information on the Buffalo Therapeutic Riding Center, visit www.thebtrc.org.
