"A person can learn how to set any horse up to succeed using 'feel and release'", according to Desmond. "Horses understand it immediately because it is their language." Leslie co-authored the classic horse training manual, 'True Horsemanship Through Feel' with horseman and rancher, Bill Dorrance of Salinas, CA (1906 - 1999). Leslie will demonstrate and explain how to release your horse to any maneuver using Feel & Release Techniques that were shown and taught to Leslie during her 4-year apprenticeship Bill Dorrance.


Auditors welcome at $45 daily or $135 for all for days.

(Note to Juniors! Leslie welcomes kids, teens and young adults under 21 years of age to all US clinics at no charge.)

Riders Fee:

$475 for 3 90-minutes private sessions from Friday -Sunday, October 11-13.

Demo Horses: $450 for 4 90-minute sessions from Thurs - Sun, October 10 - 13.

Single session $175 demo horse is available on Thursday afternoon.

This approach to coaching riders and training horses requires no special equipment and avoids the use of fear or force. Learn how to obtain amazing, and very useful results for all breeds and riding styles. Leslie's work will astonish you, until you see how simple it really is. Come and learn . . . so you can pass it on to your own friends, students and colleagues. This is a grass roots movement in the truest sense.
