    One thought on “True Horsemanship Through Feel”

    1. On of the best horse books. He talks funny and Leslie wrote it just like he said it, but the man had a lot of important stuff to say. There are a lot of pictures and Bill tells us what the horse and human are thinking in each picture. It made me realize that it is possible to understand the horse, you just have to listen, or feel, carefully.

    2. This is one of those books that's so exhaustive and full of meat, you have to read it more than once. Learning to work with horses through feel is a lifelong pursuit, but this book brings you a little closer.

    3. I really liked this book since the subject matter is dear to my heart. I love horses, and natural horsemanship. Bill's leaning toward "feeling" is so true to how to build unique friendships and trust between humans and horses. When you can think of your horse as a buddy, who's willing to play with the owner/rider with complete trust, you'll understand Bill's detailed meaning.I truly enjoyed re-reading this book before I loaned it to a young person trying to understand how a horse thinks and feel [...]

    4. This is a terrific and practical 'natural horsemanship' manual. The book's conversational tone conveys the sense that the late Bill Dorrance is speaking directly to the reader. While Bill Dorrance's unique idiom takes a little getting used to, his gentle, often droll insights about horses and their riders make reading this book a pleasure. The book is also packed with useful photographs and drawings, which help to illustrate the often subtle concepts being discussed.

    5. A classic about one of the original Horse Whisperers. There are not a lot of people/riding instructors/clinicians who can explain "feel" and Bill Dorrance and his co-writer Leslie Desmond do a thorough job in this book. There are many astute quotes and the language is "flavorful" and left as Bill Dorrance said things. Not an easy read but well worth the time!

    6. love the inclusion of images. it helps so much when trying to put the strategies into practice. and yes, i'm trying to read it from cover to cover, even though it sounds like he narrated this over the phone and it was written down verbatim.

    7. A wonderful look at horsemanship through the eyes of a lifetime true horseman. His journey is done, but with the help of Leslie Desmond, the words of Bill Dorrance will live on to give thought to those who want to find the path to understanding the horse's mind.

    8. Reading this book to prepare for an interview with one of the authors (only one is still living). It truly takes horsemanship to another level.

    9. I have never thought about "the feel" of true horsemanship, but now, I can't think of anything else! Great book!
