Jonathan has reported that his first day in Florida was a big one! After a very late arrival last night at 3:30am, he was up bright and early to watch his friend and mentor George Morris ride some horses.
For those of you who do not know who George is, here is a quick intro: In the jumping world he is living legend. George, an olympic medalist and world renowned horseman and coach has just recently retired as Chef d’equipe of the United States Show Jumping Team. He is a good friend and mentor of Jonathan’s and overall a really great guy!
So how did this come about?
Several years ago George watched a demo Jonathan did with Hal, and saw Jonathan jump Hal bareback and bridless. He then invited Jonathan to come to Florida and ride with him. They hit it off and have been fast friends since that day, sharing and talking horses like they had just discovered them. They can go from technique to philosophy to some crazy story in minute!
In the winter, Wellington Florida is busting with equine activity. Everywhere you look there are so many beautiful horses and properties. People from all over the world come here to soak up this amazing place!
Here are some photos from the day from all around Wellington at the various lessons and shows they attended.
Jonathan and George start shooting a DVD together on Monday and we all can’t wait to see what they come up with.
Stay Inspired by Horses!
