U.S. Show Jumping Chef d’Equipe George Morris to Undergo Treatment for Cancer

U.S. Show Jumping Chef d'Equipe and Practical Horseman columnist George Morris will undergo treatment for cancer.

April 13, 2012 -- U.S. Show Jumping Chef d'Equipe George Morris will be undergoing treatment for prostate cancer this spring.

Morris will remain in his position of Chef d'Equipe and will stay closely involved with the program, the selection process and the riders even though he will be unable to travel to the Observation Events.

Morris has asked Robert Ridland (who was recently named the Morris' successor beginning in 2013: http://www.usefnetwork.com/news/8096/2012/2/21/robert_ridland_approved_for_us_sh.aspx)
to attend the Observation Events and monitor the technical aspects of those competitions and report to Morris.

Morris is expected to be fit and able to return to the horse show circuit by early summer and is expected to be able to travel in time to prepare the team in Europe for the Olympic Games and attend that Championship. The USEF and the entire horse show community wishes Morris a full recovery.

The four USEF Observation Events are as follows:

The Del Mar National Horse Show
Del Mar, California May 1-6, 2012

Kentucky Spring Horse Show
Lexington, Kentucky May 8-13, 2012
