YPÄJÄ, Finland
- While George Morris is an American through and through, his teachings are respected all over the world. Next week, Morris will travel to YPÄJÄ, Finland to teach a clinic at the Equine College of Ypäjä from May 6-8, 2014. This special event will allow international auditors and riders to learn the foundations of good horsemanship from the best in the business.

After retiring as Chef d'Equipe of the United States Show Jumping Team, Morris has set his sights on developing the future of the sport by conducting clinics around the world. Focusing on helping riders develop correct form and function, Morris has often been referred to as the founding father of hunt seat equitation. Second to none, his teachings, technique and style are revered around the world. Over the course of his career, Morris has been highly successful as a rider, coach, clinician, author and judge.

"The clinic is organized by National Federation of Finland, and it's an important part of our jumping trainer education program," explained Sports Manager Mr. Aki Ylanne.  "There will be also students from our equine college, and this is part of their education. Even though this is training for riders, it is also special for the trainers."

While spots to participate as a rider in the clinic filled up immediately, auditor positions are still available to gain knowledge from the esteemed Morris through observation. A waiting list is also available for riders should other openings become available. Auditor spots to learn from the legendary George H. Morris are available for 40 Euros per day.

The daily clinic schedule will begin with the first group of beginner riders will be at 9:00 a.m., followed by intermediate riders at 11:00 a.m. The final group of advanced riders will commence at 2:00 p.m.
