Bill Dorrance - True Horsemanship Through Feel by Bill Dorrance with Leslie Desmond

"I've always liked horses and I've always wanted
to help them do their job better, whatever it was that they had to do."  BD

Dad had always wanted to get some of his ideas on horsemanship in print.  With the help of Leslie Desmond over a three year period the book True Horsemanship Through Feel was developed.  First published in 1999 it is 384 pages with cover art work by William Matthews and forward by Buck Brannaman.

"I'm happy to share what I've learned.  When you've passed on,
especially, it's always nice to leave something useful for others."  BD

True Horsemanship Through Feel is also available in paperback.  I do not handle the paperback edition which is sold through resellers.  A few pictures were changed, some minor text changes, and it is not quite as durable as the hardcover.  Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and other countries with a low exchange rate with the United States can generally make a better buy on the paperback with shipping through

"There wasn't anybody around back then who talked about
how you start a colt, or rode a horse or roped one either."
