The best utterings of renowned coach and trainer George Morris:
– Distances are like men. Never take the first one you see, there will always be another one.
– Impulsion does not mean running forward. Impulsion means thinking forward.
– One you see a distance, I want you obsessive with straightness. If the horse drifts, he loses power and doesn’t use himself.
– Accuracy is better than speed.
– Every second, you’re either schooling or un-schooling your horse. There is no in-between.
– Don’t copy the people you ride against. You have to do better.
– Dressage is the basis. If there’s something off here, there will be something off with the jumping.
– I didn’t have talent, but I had great ambition. I still have ambition.

– It’s all about the horse and that’s it.
– It’s about the horse, how to care for the horse, how to ride the horse and how to look after this great animal – the horse.
– At first everything is hard, then it becomes easier, then habitual, and only now does it have a chance to become beautiful.
– Precision, repeat something over and over again, that’s how you get the precision habit. Some people think it’s boring. I don’t.
– This is not rocket science. You don’t have to reinvent the space shuttle, keep it simple.
– You will be rewarded for brilliance. Not reckless brilliance, but natural brilliance. Don’t be sheep.
– Function equals form and form equals function.

7 Amazing Effects A Horse Has On A Child’s Brain
If you’ve ever heard of equine-assisted learning, you’re aware of the benefits of kids spending time with horses. It’s more than just an idea; studies repeatedly find that spending time with horses has a huge positive impact on children’s development.
These studies began when children with learning disabilities were found to be highly responsive to working with horses. Since then, the practise has spread to others fields, with benefits being found for students, adults and people suffering from PTSD.
The reason is not entirely understood, but children seem to show a unique receptivity to working with horses.
We’ve compiled a list of the main benefits that people experience when doing work with horses. All of the effects are supported by experimental evidence.
Increases in Self esteem.
Greater attention spans.
Higher levels of trust.
Lower cortisol levels.
(Cortisol is the hormone in the brain linked to stress.)
Higher levels of trust.
Decreases in anger.
The amazing effect of horses has been used to make education more effective, with equine-assisted learning programs. It’s even been introduced to the world of psychology, with some practitioners looking into equine-assisted psychotherapy!
These studies confirm what most horse people knew intuitively; there’s something about horses that changes humans for the better.
