Morris is preparing to release an autobiography, UNRELENTING - The Real Story: Horses, Bright Lights, and My Pursuit of Excellence, which chronicles his career as an unparalleled rider, trainer and judge. He is often referred to as the founding father of hunt seat equitation. This year, he is taking a break from his busy clinic schedule to focus on training a select group of riders in addition to training the Brazilian Olympic team for the 2016 Games.
Speaking about training with Morris thus far, Granato says, “It’s been really great working with him. He’s getting to know me and all of the horses, and it’s been a great opportunity for me. He offers great information and has been helping with the entire program, not just the riding. I have a lot of young, up and coming horses this season that we are building up to the next stage in their career. It’s been a lot of fun and working with him on the new horses for a long-term program for our winter schedule to get them to the main goal of grand prix horses.”
