A History of Success: George Morris and Karen Healey Stables Team up for 2014 California Clinic

November 22, 2014 | By Jackie McFarland

Karen Healey Stables is pleased to host their annual 2014 George H. Morris Clinic at Whitethorne Ranch in Somis, CA December 12-14, 2014. Morris has made this December clinic a must on his list for well over almost two decades.   Drawing participants and auditors from near and far, the legendary horseman’s knowledge is known to make an impact.

1970s Karen and George

Karen Healey and George Morris share a long history. Also well-respected for her teaching, Healey began her professional career working for Morris at Hunterdon from 1971 – 1974. During her time there, Healey immersed herself in the training techniques and methods that Morris utilizes to this day. Not only did she learn to apply his straightforward and comprehensive style to her future teaching career, but also the importance of being a well-rounded horseman outside of the show arena.

Located on the idyllic Whitethorne Ranch facility in Somis, CA Healey and her team offer an advanced training program for juniors and amateurs looking to excel in the equitation, jumper, and hunter rings.   A West Coast pioneer, Healey has developed champions since the 1980’s and her riders continue to excel to this day.
