Educational opportunities at International Omaha Horse Show!
The International Omaha Horse Show was again held at the Century Link Center in Omaha, Nebraska,
the weekend of April 12-15, 2018. During the show, Omaha Equestrian Foundation also hosts many educational opportunities open to the public at no charge. These included a one-on-one clinic with equitation icon and overall guru of our sport, George Morris.

Lucky rider Henry Moberly of Lincoln, Neb., was chosen from a field of over 20 applicants to ride for Mr. Morris based on his essay entry. Henry rode his horse Symbolic in the clinic. Henry is 14 years old and attends Irving Middle School. He also enjoys playing club soccer. He started riding poines at age 10 with Sybil Greene of Wynmore Farm in Lincoln, Nebraska.
