TSB is thrilled to have Buck Brannaman, renowned horseman and 2013 Western Horseman Award winner, featured on the cover of the May 2013 issue of Western Horseman magazine! Be sure to pick up a copy of the May issue wherever quality equestrian or Western lifestyle magazines are sold, and check it out.
Inside, the feature article about Buck tells how he has positively influenced the horse world for more than 30 years, traveling almost constantly to give hands-on clinics, sharing his stories and insights in his books, and offering instruction in his DVDs. Everything Buck does is intended to promote a kinder, gentler way of working with horses.
Buck’s influence reached mainstream audiences through the award-winning 2011 documentary BUCK, which was directed by Cindy Meehl, who most recently released the instructional follow-up series to BUCK, seven DVDs entitled 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN, in conjunction with Trafalgar Square Books. (Cindy also directed the hit music video for Templeton Thompson’s song “When I Get That Pony Rode,” and recently signed on to a new film project called UNBRANDED.)
“At my clinics, I get everything from the backyard horse owner, to really good ranch cowboys, to Olympic show jumpers,” Buck says in May’s Western Horseman article. “My clinics are neutral ground, and that’s cool because then people are in an environment where they will learn something.”
Viewers can join Buck on “neutral ground” anytime with the 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN DVD series. The seven instructional DVDs feature over 10 hours of clinic footage filmed during the making of BUCK. They allow you to watch Buck work with riders and horses from all different backgrounds and of all different abilities; listen to their questions; see them try, fail, try again, and do better. Best of all, you can turn to Buck’s wisdom whenever you need it, and as many times as necessary, to become a better partner to your horse.
“The tone of 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN is undoubtedly one of learning and communicating with the horse,” says Western Horseman Assistant Editor Kate Bradley. “Followers of Brannaman’s style of horsemanship will recognize his methods and have the opportunity to watch him work with problem horses first-hand. Those new to Brannaman’s style, or who have seen his work only in the documentary BUCK, will be able to understand how he thinks about the horse…Brannaman’s message from the documentary rings true in the seven-disc package: Do better by the horse in order to do better in life.”
