Question and Answer Session for Spectators

Between Coaching Sessions.

 

Who benefits? 

 

 

Anyone who has the buring desire to learn more about their horse, and how to

apply the feel and release approach that Bill Dorrance (1906-1999)

recommends in the book that he and Leslie wrote, called

 

"True Horsemanship Through Feel". 

 

(The book is now out of print, but some cases (16 paperbacks /case)

and individual copies  of deluxe edition books signed by Bill Dorrance,

Buck Brannaman and Leslie Desmond are still available.)

 

 

 

Spectators at this event will also learn from watching the riders and trainers who

bring their western and English horses to this course.

 

Trainers and riders will learn how to prepare a horse  -- of any breed or age, indended for any

purpose --  for the balanced maneuvers and excellent manners it should have at liberty, on

the lead & lunge line, and also under saddle. 

 

Other topics of interest will include:

 

Teaching the horse to stand still,

 

to be tied,

 

to offer the hooves politely,

 

to accept the bridle and saddle,

 

to change posture at the standstill and while moving,

 

to make snooth up and downward transitions in a straight line,

 

to make smooth upward and downward transitions on a circle,

 

to back up straight,

 

to back up to the left,

 

to back up to the right,

 

to turn left with the hips and forehand,

 

to turn right with the hips and forehand,

 

and to understand how to use the widely misunderstood art of true collection to

advantage.

 

By the way, really, what is collection?  Once could wonder.

 

And, why is so much importance assigned to this controversial posture and exercise?

 

One wonders about this, too.  

 

Leslie will demonstrate and explain clearly, in detail, how to make best use of true

collection that is understood by the horse.

 

She will show you how to recognize the posture that identifies it, and how to make

best use of its various parts, aspects and potential for ultimate benefit and calrity to

the horse about the timing, placement and speed of his feet --  on the ground, and

under saddle.

 

No special equipment is required for this course.   

 

 

Do you have a real problem with your horse?

Does your horse have difficulty understanding you?

Is the horse you are considering for purchase is the right one for you? 

Consider inviting Leslie out to evaluate your horse before you list

your horse for sale, or consider a new horse for purchase 

At her courses, riders and handlers learn where to stand and how to behave in a

way that horses quickly and clearly understand what is expected.

During the weekend, students will be taught how to educate and manage a horse

using feel & release to inspire the desired responses. Whether you come to watch

or bring a horse to the demonstration or private coaching -- you will be exposed

to learn many useful ideas and techniques that will lead you to some new and

successful interactions with your horse when you get

home!
