In four daily sessions with horses and riders, Leslie will introduce the concepts, techniques and terms involved in the "feel-based" communication that she learned from Master Horseman, Bill Dorrance, of Salinas, CA.

Whether you perfer to ride during your 90-minute private session, or want to bring a horse in order to improve your groundwork skills, Leslie will first demonstrate and discuss the most suitable way for each "Horse & Rider team" to develop the lightness and refinement that is missing between them.

The approach taught and practised by Bill Dorrance can change your view of horses, and help you shape horse to become not only

SAFER to ride and to be around, but CALMER and HAPPIER!

And the Good News is . . .

Accurate hoof placement leads to body alignment, improved

neck and shoulder carriage, and flexibility under a saddle that fits!

How do you increase the chances of helping your horse

to achieve accurate hoof placement?

With good timing and effective coaching.

Both make a big difference.
