The George Morris Clinic

Kavita Sinha and Emma Krenzke will ride with George Morris the coach of the US Olympic Team this weekend near Dallas. Several other riders will audit the clinic and all hope to bring back a greater understanding of horsemanship. Larry Smith has been teaching the principles set down by Mr. Morris and our riders usually do very well. Irish Magnum (Elvis) and Infinity and Beyond (Griffin) will be the horses going up to the clinic.

 

Here is a picture of Kavita and Elvis going over a "dodgy" jump!

Campers Are Not Daunted by Houston's Weather

Each week this summer, campers have spent their days learning about riding. Do you know the parts of the saddle? They do. And they are pretty good at picking a pony's feet by Friday. Campers test all of their knowledge at the horse show on Friday. Parents are welcome.

Thank goodness for the indoor arena which protects everyone from the hot sun and the occasional downpour. Thursday, Trail Day, gives the kids to ride outside. Pack the sun screen. Campers have time in the party room too, cooling off and playing equestrian games. Some campers would stay overnight if they could. There are five weeks of camp left. Don't be left out!
