Diane Carney and Canterbury Farm Organize Annual George H. Morris Clinic

Hampshire, IL - October 8, 2008 - Diane Carney of Telluride Farm is pleased to announce that the annual George H. Morris Clinic is scheduled for Thanksgiving weekend at Canterbury Farm in Hampshire, IL. Held for over 20 years, this annual tradition educates groups who range in experience from the 1.10m competition height to the grand prix level. Auditors are welcome and no reservations are needed for the three-day clinic, which will be held from Nov. 28-30, 2008.

On Saturday, Nov. 29, Zone 5 is sponsoring lunch for participants and auditors. Film excerpts of show jumping from the 2008 Olympics in Hong Kong will be played and discussed in detail by George H. Morris, who was the Chef d'Equipe for the United States Equestrian Team at the Games. His guidance led U.S. Show Jumping athletes to win the Team Gold Medal and Individual Bronze Medal.

"We always enjoy the experience of George's clinics and showing our appreciation for his knowledge and spirit as a whole," commented Carney. "Greg Franklin of Canterbury Farm is the host, and I've coordinated the event for years. We are thrilled to have George come every year. We're excited to applaud him, not only for his teaching, but for his joy and accomplishment at this year's Olympic Games. We even purchased jumps from the Olympics in Hong Kong for this year's clinic!"

"His clinic gets better and better every year," she added. "He's remarkable. The education is exciting, informative, and enlightening. We are so appreciative of the effort that he makes for our country and the U.S. Team. We get more and more spectators every year," she noted.

"Most of the equestrians in this country appreciate George, and people are awakening to the opportunity to spend time with him. His efforts are huge, and I love that there's a new generation of young riders who recognize that. It's fun to introduce him to people who have seen him in books and on television. It's great they can learn from what he teaches, as well as the tradition, respect, and history involved with true horsemanship."
