Leslie's Latest NEWS

Right - Tied Halters and Ropes that carry a great feel are now available from Desmond Outfitter; Rebate from the Top Western Safety Stirrup Maker from Lauren, MT

 More horse-gear from Desmond Outfitter is now in stock.

 

SAFETY FIRST!: IF YOU PURCHASE THESE ITEMS BE SURE TO COIL YOU ROPE PROPERLY AND TIE A CORRECT ROPE-HALTER KNOT. IF YOU ARE GOING TO TIE YOUR HORSE UP WITH ANY ROPE< BE SURE YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE VARIOUS KNOTS THAT ARE COMMONLY USED FOR THIS PURPOSE.  MANY PEOPLE LIKE TO USE A BOWLINE,  A CLOVE HITCH,  A SO-CALLED "Quick-Release" KNOT, OR OTHERS. 

IF YOUR HORSE HAS NOT ALREADY BEEN TRAINED TO STAND TIED COMFORTABLY, AND YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE PROCESS NECESSARY TO ACHIEVE THIS OBJECTIVE CALMLY AND SAFELY, IT IS IMPORTANT TO GET HELP. THIS HELP CAN BE FOM A PROFESSIONAL TRAINER, OR FROM SOMEONE WHOSE KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE WITH HORSES IS SUFFICIENT TO EDUCATE THE HORSE AND, EQUALLY IMPORTANT, TO TEACH YOU HOW TO KEEP THAT SOLID FOUNDATION IN TYING AND HANDLING IN PLACE.

 

WHY IS A RIGHT-TIED HALTER IMPORTANT? DOES MY HORSE NEED ONE?  DO I?

Many horses are handled primarily on their left sides by right-handed people for basic tasks throughout their lives. This can and usually does lead to an imbalance in the way a horse presents itself to a person (left shoulders and leg heavy, leading and leaning into a person, and the right hip often set back, resulting in a horse that does not often stand squarely as a default, or at all. Read more about this in the ARTICLES section of this site. LINK HERE:

Right-tied halters in the following sizes are now available: draft, large, regular, small horse, yearling sizes.  

Available colors: 

black

red

royal blue

dark green

brown

tan

red & black pin stripe

tan & black pin stripe

blue & black wide stripe

green & black wide stripe

yellow & brown wide stripe

purple & pink wide stripe

Leslie has also re-stocked her ropes in a variety of lengths for different jobs. These ropes carry a clear feel.  They carry the best feel of any she has found in decades of using rope (of natural and synthetic materials)  from the climbing, fishing, sailing and logging / tree service industries. These ropes convey your better feel -- and your worst, as well, it must be said -- directly to the horse. In ways that other popular ropes do not, Leslie's ropes immediately reveal, convey and confirm the actual facts about your connection to your horse on the ground!  This feedback is valuable and can be trusted if it is interpreted correctly.

 

The downside: Some people prefer a very light rope or canvas/synthetic tape to lunge or lead their horse. The good news is that these are available at most tack stores and on-line mail order houses.

 Leslie's ropes and halters do not easily absorb and retain sand, moisture, grit and/or granular composites from various arena natural and synthetic arena footings. They are washable and can also be line dried or withstand countless trips through a commercial dryer. The latigo poppers on the ropes also withstand dozens of trips through the washer and dryer.

Leslie's preferred lead rope is available in five lengths for your convenience: 12, 15, 18, 20, and 25 ft. lengths.

 Ideal rope lengths for various tasks are shown below.  This is a guide based on my experience over the years; your needs and circumstances should determine your decision about which length is best for you and your horses. 

Leading and tying small mini, donkey, pony or small horse: 12 ft.

Leading, lunging and/or tying a large pony, mid-sized horse, donkey or mule: 15 ft. or 18 ft.

Leading, lunging  and/ or tying an untrained mid-sized to large horse, or mule: 18 ft to 20 ft.

Leading or lunging a reactive or insensitive large horse, large mule, draft horse: 18 ft., 20 ft., or 25 ft.

These come with detachable English Slobber Straps (your choice of Stainless Steel and Brass hardware). Also, hobbles and latigo curb & chin straps and replacement saddle strings.

During the last years of his life, Bill Dorrance (1906 - 1999) shared the philosohpy and techniques of his approach to horse training with Leslie Desmond.  They co-authored a classic trining manual that outlines his method in a book called True Horsemanship Through Feel. This approach to coaching riders and training horses 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. It does require a good bit of time, a burning desire to learn it, and a knowledgable coach. Leslie will demonstrate these techniques and be availeble to answer questions about horses and the effect that this approach has on them. It is a beautiful method that opens the way for a soft, accurate and respnsive relationship with the horse. You will be able to observe instantly that her conneciton to horses, and their connection to her, is based on a profound level of mutual understanding and lightness.

We are privileged to have Leslie in our area and whether you have or haven't observed her handle horses through Feel, this is an event that you will definately appreciate and not want to miss!

Feel & Release Interview link from WKAC1080 AM / What did Bill Dorrance mean by "feel"?

 

THANKS to  . . . . 

All About Horses radio host, Jim Swanner of Athens, Alabama.

 When . . . PULL MEANS GO!! Oh, no!

Leslie explained how to find a stop on a horse whothinks that pull means "GO!" using feel and release. She explained that this wonderful think, a stop, a WHOA! can be found between forward and back, and left and right using an approach called feel and release <<CLICK THE LINK to hear the exchange that she and Jim Swanner had about stopping a horse today! 

More details about teaching a horse to stop, through feel, can be found in Chapter 4 of the classic training manual "True Horsemanship Through Feel",  that Leslie co-authored for Bill Dorrance in 1999.

During the last years of his life, Bill asked Leslie to accept his guidance during an apprenticeship that lasted several years while she recorded his knowledge and experiences for posterity. Between 1995 and 1999 they trained horses together, put on demonstrations and held clinics around Monterey County, California.  

"True Horsemanship Through Feel" <<CLICK!

is now out of print, but used copies are still available from Amazon.

Jim Swanner, a natural horseman and clinician, said he hoped that his listeners would gain a better understanding of the approach called "feel & release" that Bill Dorrance used on his cattle ranch and passed on to Leslie Desmond. Leslie called the experience "life changing" and shared some tips on how to build in that gentle sureness that young horses need to have built into their foundations. She said that time spent learning about the importance of groundwork from Ray Hunt, Buck Brannaman and Tom Dorrance, Bill's younger brother, helped her understand and appreciate the subtleties of feel & release that Bill brought to the horses he showed her how to train during his last years.

"What I appreciated so much about the way Bill handled horses is that there was always a look to them, a confident sense and a sureness they had after he handled them. Most all of them had respect for people's space on the ground and they seemed to understand the connection between accurate hoof placement in a rope and halter, and a self-carriage that left the forehand freed up under saddle. Bill had no need for a dull or heavy horses on his ranch, and the way he did so little to prepare them so well for just about anything was mesmerizing. I was honored to have had an opportunity to talk about the gift of nearly-lost knowledge Bill left for us, and I hope there were at least a few helpful things people can took away from the show this morning."

Thanks for listening….
