George Morris is practically god-like. Anyone who calls him a "bad rider" is a first class moron. Not to offend the NH'ers, but this is not the first BO I've seen practing NH that doesn't have a CLUE and makes up all their own rules based on their own fantasies. Why doesn't she compete? How successful are her students?

Hehehe I know! She has never competed and none of her students are very good riders. She has a schooling show every year and of course she is the judge. She makes all of her students come before us (her non-lesson boarders and area barns) even though other people are better than them. Oh well! (And some of her students have asked me to give them lessons! I, personaly, think that is sad!)

Oh my gosh, this lady sounds like an absolute fruitcake. There is a REASON why people all these years have been riding with their heels down. We don't do it because it's pretty or because George Morris says to. It's because it's the most secure and effective way for your leg to be stable and support your body! I'm a firm believer in sticking to the basics (Something I have heard George Morris AND Beezie Madden preach on!) because that's what works! Without a heel you've lost your stability and your leg, which means you probably aren't being kind to your horse's back! A horse that has a bad back cannot jump!! Wow. Run far far away from this lady.

*Sigh* Stories like this are discouraging. Why does it seem people go to one extreme or the other? I would say I'm very concerned about horse welfare but really, it just seems like so many of these trainers pull their ideas out of their behinds.
