    DescriptionExpert horseman Bill Dorrance chose the name True Horsemanship Through Feel because ?feel” is the language of horses. Learning that language can expand any horseman's knowledge and abilities?whether he or she is learning to ride, train, or compete. In a writing style that is generously detailed and packed with meaning, Dorrance directs the reader’s attention to the many subtle things about how horses and humans act and interact. In these pages, he urges us to reach toward a deeper level of insight into horses and their riders, as he shares a wealth of helpful information. With hundreds of illustrations, True Horsemanship Through Feel takes the reader step by step through the basic challenges that have characterized horse-human relations for centuries. Drawing on his years of experience, Bill Dorrance has crafted a book that imparts knowledge previously available only by word of mouth.

    Review quote
    "If you take away everything that Bill is known for--his roping, the rawhide work, his horsemanship, all of it--what you find you have underneath is a really fine human being." --Buck Brannaman, author of The Faraway Horses and Believe "Bill Dorrance has a long lifetime's knowledge of horses and how they work, and his insights are unshakably his own, because he's lived them. For Leslie Desmond to have captured the style and substance of this remarkable man so faithfully, in such a beautifully produced book, seems hardly less than miraculous." --William Steinkraus, Olympic Champion in Show Jumping (1968) and Chairman Emeritus, U.S. Equestrian Team "Everyone from dressage competitor to team roper to trail rider can find something of benefit when he opens the book to learn True Horsemanship Through Feel. How fortunate for the industry that Leslie Desmond has documented the master's techniques." --Western Horseman Magazine "[True Horsemanship Through Feel] is pure Bill, full of stories and explanations [while he] gently presents the reader with this way of working with a horse. It is a gracious and generous gift of his experience of a lifetime." --Kathy Peth, Foundation Quarter Horse Journal "Bill's straightforward and logical approach to horsemanship was unmatched. His methods were inspirational and enlightening . . . his encouragement to find a deeper level of insight into our horses and ourselves was, and still is, very refreshing. Bill and his ways will live on in this wonderful book." --Randi Peters, Natural Horse Magazine
