Question George Morris Training/ Riding Methods

Hello all
I have just recently started taking lessons and the lady i am getting lessons from uses George Morris's methods in her teachings, i am loving it right now and i definitely think it is a very good method. She is also a certified centered riding trainer and she uses some parelli. But she seems to keep her focus in George Morris's Method.

Anyways i was just wondering what you all think of George Morris and his ways of riding and training?

He is the best where Equitation is applicable for Jumping. Afterall, our horses reflect what we do in the saddle 100% of the time and 99% of error that occur while riding is ours, and GM totally understands this.

My last coach trained under GM, so I learnt TONS from her. I am a firm believe that if you are out, so is your horse - and so does GM.

Other than the fact that YES I do believe that an ungroomed horse can jump as well as a groomed one Yeah GM is good.

He helped get the Gold last year at the Olumpics, can't prove yourself any more than that.
