Audtors are welcome to watch and participate in the Q&A sessions at the breaks and at the conclusion of Friday night demonstration and lessons over the weekend.

In this clinic you will learn the foundation -- philosophy, techniques and angles/position -- necessary to lighten up your hands, position your upper body and legs while you ride.

After some practice, you will know were the feet are how to place them lightly when and where you wish in the various gaits. You will learn how to adjust your horse's head, neck, shoulders, rips, loin and hips  . . .  all this with lighter hands as you refine your new skills on the ground and in mounted work, too.

You will learn how to set your horse up to succeed so that few if any corrections are needed. For some people this is a revolutionary concept. For others, it is an idea that was suspected to have validity all along, but the best route to accomplish that illusive task was not known or, for some reason, not easily managed. Leslie will explain these details and demonstrate the approach thoroughly.

This seminar is perfect for riders of all levels.

As needed, horse owners will be coached in establishing a "leading-partner" role and horse handling skills using feel and release that include:

- standing still for grooming and hoof-care

- leading and tying

- trailer loading (as needed)

- mounting and dismounting in a way that does not cause the horse to become imbalanced

- upward and downward transitions / from the ground and to the saddle!

- development of a soft feel on the lead rope and reins with light hands

- getting to Yes! with a difficult horse!
