Jonathan had another fantastic day with George Morris and he is excited to share his experience!
Today he was able to settle in and really soak up being a student. “Learning and visiting with George about horses is always a highlight but watching him ride this morning was amazing. I took in every stride as if I was riding the horse myself!”
Jonathan is always learning and honing his craft and here are some of the quotes he heard from George today:
“The horse must accept 3 contacts: The seat, the legs and the hands” ~ In the picture above, did you notice that he is riding with out stirrups? In this case he did that so the horse would learn to accept the his whole leg.
“Resist the horse in exact proportion that the horse is resisting your request”
“A good horseman does it for the horse, whereas a great horseman teaches the horse to do it for him”
“You ride leg to hand”
After the lessons, it was back to the horse show to watch the Jumper Derby and plan for a full day of filming, which starts tomorrow morning!
Keep watching for more updates!
Stay, Inspired by Horses!
