Horsemanship Through Feel & Release is the method Bill Dorrance showed Leslie during the last years of his life. This approach to coaching riders and training horses -- both on the ground and under saddle -- does not require special equipment or the use of fear or force to obtain amazing, and very useful results for all breeds and riding styles.

Private instruction -- on the ground, mounted, or both -- are open to riders at the Foundation Level and up.
