Equus Film Fest

7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN and WHEN I GET THAT PONY RODE are at the 1st Annual Equus Film Festival!

 

TSB congratulates Cindy Meehl, Director of the award-winning documentary BUCK and award-winning instructional series 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN, along with singer/songwriter Templeton Thompson, for winning Best Music Video for “When I Get That Pony Rode” at the 1st Annual Equus Film Festival, going on now through this weekend (August 15-18, 2013).

“It was AMAZING to see our video in the Arcada Theater, on the BIG screen,” says Templeton. “That’s a first for me, and I could definitely get used to it! None of this would have happened if not for our dear friend the incredibly talented Director, Cindy Meehl.”

After debuting online on CMT.com on February 19, 2013, “When I Get That Pony Rode” became one of the most requested videos on that site, on its second day hitting #1 over many other major country artists. The video, along with 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN, is an official selection of the Equus Film Festival, and Templeton traveled to St. Charles, Illinois, where the film festival is running in conjunction with the Festival of the Horse and Drum,  to perform—as well as see her song on the “big screen”!

Speaking of the big screen, if you are planning to check out the Festival of the Horse and Drum, or if you’re just in the St. Charles area, you can attend a one-hour screening of 7 CLINICS on Sunday, August 18, at 2:30 pm. Tickets to event are available at the Arcada Theater–only $6.00 for an all-day pass to see all the horsey film selections!

If you haven’t been there, the Arcada Theater is worth a visit! Built in 1926 by local millionaire and Chicago Tribune cartoonist Lester J. Norris, it became known as one of the outstanding Vaudeville houses of its day. Many legendary stars have graced the stage, including George Burns and Gracie Allen, Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy, Olivia DeHavilland, the John Phillip Sousa Band, Cornelia Otis Skinner, Vincent Price, Jeanette McDonald, Walter Slezak and Maria Von Trapp, to name a few. In 2005, the Arcada was fully renovated and now plays hosts to festivals and entertainers, including today’s hottest stars.

 

It's a thrill to have 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN and WHEN I GET THAT PONY RODE on the big screen at the historic Arcada Theater!

WH May Issue

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.”

As Cindy Meehl, director of the award-winning documentary BUCK, was putting the final touches on the follow-up release to the film—the bestselling 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN instructional DVD series—we absolutely loved the addition of music from Nashville singer/songwriter Templeton Thompson and her husband Sam Gay. Their moody, bluesy guitar and vocals, mixed with lyrics that hit home for the horse-lover, gave the 7 CLINICS DVDs (which were created from much of the unused footage shot while filming the documentary BUCK) a certain “feel,” evoking both dirt and dust and wide open grasslands, inspiring a sense of both hard work and hope, and the unbelievable partnerships that can be the result.

Cindy and Templeton then teamed up to create a music video for “When I Get That Pony Rode”—one of the songs featured in the 7 CLINICS DVDs. This was a pretty special first-time experience, for both of them.

“Getting to make the video was a dream come true for me,” says Templeton. “I’ve only ever been a ‘fly on the wall’ on a music video set like that…but I’m plannin’ on doin’ MORE of THAT! I like it A LOT and I’m dreamin’ BIG!!”

“It was so much fun working with Templeton and her horses (who double as the ‘difficult horse’ in the video),” adds Cindy. “The only problem was when we were trying to make them look wild and troubled, they only wanted to hook on to her and love their mom!”

Just a month ago, the video premiered on CMT.com as part of their Independents Day feature. By the next day, “When I Get That Pony Rode” was the Number One Most Watched Video on CMT.com, over many other major country artists and Templeton was promoted to the CMT.com front page as part of the “CMT Video Spotlight.”

Earlier this month, “When I Get That Pony Rode” premiered on the Great American Country (GAC) Daily Countdown, and again, due to views and requests, Templeton was promoted to GACTV.com front page as part of their “Must See Music Videos” list.

Now, we are so excited to announce that due to incredible number of requests, “When I Get That Pony Rode” is re-airing on the GAC Daily Countdown today and tomorrow (March 20 & 21) at noon and 6:00 p.m. Be sure to tune in and vote—there are many ways to do it!

We were all sorts of excited when we first heard that Cindy Meehl, Director of the award-winning documentary BUCK and the instructional DVD series 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN, was directing Nashville singer and songwriter Templeton Thompson’s new music video! And now the video for “When I Get That Pony Rode,” which is featured on the 7 CLINICS DVD series and Tempy’s SONGS FROM 7 CLINICS CD, is premiering on CMT.com (CLICK HERE TO WATCH IT NOW!)

Here’s what Tempy had to say about making the video for “When I Get That Pony Rode”:

‘When I Get That Pony Rode’ is one of the songs we re-recorded exclusively for the 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN project. It was inspired by Buck’s book, The Faraway Horses. At a point in the book, Buck talks about ‘the consequences of a fast turn,’ and we actually tried writing a song with that title, but it just wasn’t working. And then, magically, like they often tend to do, the title ‘When I Get That Pony Rode’ appeared…the song is for everyone out there working their tails off doing what they LOVE and what they’re passionate about and knowing, really knowing, that they really are going to have somethin’ to show when they ‘get that pony rode.’ The song is a metaphor for that journey and everything that goes with it—the joy and the pain of it all, what ya gotta go through to ‘get there.’

“Making the video with Cindy and her team was AMAZING!! I still can’t believe the opportunity and gift that Cindy has given us…it was an absolute honor to work with the crème de la crème of the music video world.  And, I am such a PROUD mama cowgirl of my big, beautiful Jane and Beau [Tempy’s two Quarter Horses, who appear in the video]. They shined like the diamonds they are on the screen.

“Getting to make the video for ‘When I Get That Pony Rode’ was a dream come true for me.”
