Beginning on Thursday, March 28, 2013, from 6:00 - 9:30 PM Leslie will explain the philosophy of "Feel & Release" and demonstrate the techniques Bill Dorrance shared with her to help the owners of 2 horses that have different characters, abilities, coping skills, and challenges. The demonstrations are 90-minutes long. There will be a break for refreshments and Q&A between the two horses.

Auditors 21 and under are welcome at this event, at no charge. Please inform your local county Horsemen's Assoc. Youth Leaders, 4-H groups, Pony Club Leaders about this unique opportunity for tomorrow's young trainers and riders to learn from Leslie Desmond March 28 - 30, 2013 at Stone Tree Acres.

Through her work with riders and horses at the clinic, she will demonstrate the value that feel & release has in gentling and raising colts and starting young horses under saddle, for pleasure or performance, without struggles and frustration! This approach is a good way to keep the young horses' minds ready to learn more, and accept a fair presentation so the goals of trail riding, showing, and development of a safe riding partners are within reach!
