Never Giving Up: Laura Kraut Pushes Riders To Persevere At Horsemastership Clinic

Wellington, Fla.—Jan. 7

Never give up: it’s good advice for everyone, and clinician Laura Kraut gave it time and again to riders at the George H. Morris Horsemastership Clinic on Saturday.

“Equitation is important, and not in terms of being frozen for a judge,” Kursinski said. “It’s not about being a mannequin up there—it’s about being supple and elastic and in the right place at the right time.”
