“Cut! That’s wrap!” Filming wraps up in Florida!

Jonathan and George Morris just finished up two busy days of filming at Ashland Farms in Wellington Florida!  Here is a preview of what they’ve been up to.

Jonathan and George have come together to produce an educational dvd about Jumping and we are really excited about it.  George and Jonathan see eye to eye when it comes to the importance of a strong foundation.  This dvd will integrate Jonathan’s program, both on the ground and while riding, and George’s specialization in jumping for riders of all levels.

Here are some behind the scenes shots of the last 2 days of filming.   We would like to thank Ashland Farms for their wonderful hospitality, and also for providing us with some amazing horses!

Here is a picture of George and Jonathan with Elvis, a 5 year old off-track thoroughbred that was provided to Jonathan for his portion of the dvd.  Elvis is an extremely sensitive horse who provided some great lessons!

Ashland Farms was such a beautiful facility for our filming and The Smith Family was so incredibly welcoming! We were there from early morning until sundown getting all our shots!

We really lucked out with finding Brian Chacon of One Man Band Inc. to film this dvd.   Brian was amazing to work with!

Jonathan sent Elvis over obstacles on the ground before he rode over them.  Here you can see that in this position, that Jonathan calls “The Horseman’s Dance”, Elvis has to go first: his nose is out infront of Jonathan’s hand.

Elvis was very skeptical of this obstacle, but after a short time, Jonathan had him jumping it and stepping through it with confidence.

    congratulations on all your continued sucess Jonathan! you continue to inspire no matter what the age or financial position of all of us who love horses— while we may(lol) never ride like you you have made us kinder, more thoughtful and definetly more knowledgeable on how we train and teach our horses thus not only giving back to the equine world but by showing the new generation entering this arena a more positive, kind, respectful and confident way of learning which brings a win win to both rider and horses alike——

We'd love to hear from you
