We are delighted to welcome back our clinician for this year Steve Davis. Steve joined us in 2018 and gave the most amazing clinic for our members. His quiet attention to detail and good humour meant that even the most apprehensive participant couldn’t fail to thrive. We can’t wait to show him the improvements we have made since his last visit.
Steve has a lifelong passion for the Morgan Horse. As a youth, he apprenticed with Master trainer/showman Bob Baker, in his native town of Middlebury, Vermont. During that time, he had the opportunity for the hand’s-on development of many young horses, including an association with numerous National Champions. Through this New England network, Steve met his future wife, Dr. Josie Davis, and Dr. Donald Balch, Director of the University of Vermont Morgan Horse Farm in the neighbouring town of Weybridge, VT.
After obtaining a B.S. Degree in Animal Science from UVM in 1972, He was hired by his alma mater, and began a 45 year career of employment initially as Horseman and subsequently Director of the University of Vermont’s Historic Morgan Program.
Officially retired from UVM this past September, Steve served on his tenth Morgan Grand National judging panel, (2017). He and wife Josie continue to work a few horses, and as a forty year United States Equestrian Federation Registered Judge in the Morgan division, Steve hopes to continue being actively involved with his passion.
