Greetings EN Readers!
We’re now seven days into the new year, and it’s already shaping up to be a great one! Although, I don’t know about the rest of you, but I can assure you my (hastily made) New Year’s Resolutions simply aren’t going to make it. Who honestly believes that committing to a late-night resolution to improve yourself, while tipsy on champagne, is in any way a valid plan for self improvement? I don’t!
But obviously some riders were interested in serious self improvement, as the reports from the 2012 George H. Morris Horsemastership Training Sessions continue to roll in. Chronicle of the Horse posted Day 2, entitled “Building Blocks of Success,” and Day 3, “Don’t Ride Stupid,” on their website yesterday. George himself has been unwell, so Kent Farrington and McClain Ward have been filling in as instructors. We here at Eventing Nation would like to extend our “Get Well Soon” wishes to George, and hope to see articles of his return to his Training Sessions very soon!
