Bridging the gap. If you were to ask me what that specifically means, I would say to you, Ali Cornish. She is literally the definition of just that. She is literally doing just that….. bridging the gap. Ali has been riding all of her life, literally eating, breathing, sleeping horses. You might say, “yeah, me too.” But for her it’s different. Her vision is different. Having Buck Brannaman as a close mentor of hers since she was just a young child, she has always hunted that soft feel. And was determined to translate that into the show ring. In a world that is so much different than Buck’s, she has discovered that it is all really just the same. The same principles, the same steps, the same execution of the ask, it is all the same, the only thing that is different is the saddle. And it is not uncommon to see her switching back and fourth between english and western saddles. It is also, not uncommon to see her riding her best jumping horse in a western saddle working cattle. She is THE most well rounded rider I have ever met. She is also THE most beautiful rider I have ever metl! It is like a dance watching her bring horses along. The show ring is just the grand finale in her dance! She is…. bridging the gap! .

An aerial view of George Morris's Hunterdon, which he guided to greatness through the 1970s. "I'll never forget going with him when he first looked at the property that became Hunterdon," says Melanie Smith Taylor in #unrelenting "It was nothing but a farmhouse and little ramshackle barn, but he had a great vision of what it could become."

Melanie Smith and Calypso at Southhampton in 1979. "He was a horse in a pony's body...Melanie, with her typical genius, worked to develop his front end by training him over a lot of gymnastics" #georgemorris in #unrelenting #showjumping #unrelentingghm #melaniesmithtaylor #calypso #equestrian #uset #equitation #hunterjumper #huntseat #southhampton

From George's vault: A clipping from the Providence Journal @provjournal September 1980 headline: "College soph and his mount defeat Smith and Calypso." Peter Leone, then a sophomore @drewuniversity and Semi-Pro beat Melanie Smith and Calypso in the International Jumping Derby-Michelob Cup. Both Melanie and Peter were George's students!

We had an amazing weekend hosting the USHJA Zone 10 Super Clinic with Melanie Smith Taylor and Mario Soto (sports psychologist). Thanks to all that came from near and far to support this amazing opportunity for USHJA members. To get to absorb so much information from a living LEGEND was mind blowing and inspiring, then you top it off with a clinic on sports psychology AND private sessions for all the riders... WOW!! If you aren't sure what your membership does for you, contact your nearest zone rep! #ushjazone10 #thankyou #melaniesmithtaylor #huntersedge #mariosoto #onceinalifetimeexperience @mariosportsdoc
