Nearly every week of the year, Buck Brannaman is on the road, conducting horsemanship clinics in which he teaches horse owners how to better understand and work with their animals, creating a relationship based on trust and respect rather than force. Buck''s skills have become legendary in fact, the main character in Robert Redford''s film The Horse Whisperer was based largely on him, and he served as the director''s technical adviser during the shoot.
"These principles are really about life - about living your life so you''re not at war with the horse, or with other people," Buck writes. At heart, this rich and rewarding autobiography is ultimately a prescription for living a harmonious existence - whether it involves horses or not.
About the Author
Buck Brannaman is a horse gentler - not a horse "breaker" - who has started more than 10,000 young horses in his clinics. He lives with his wife Mary and their three daughters in Sheridan, Wyoming. William Reynolds is the associate publisher of Cowboys & Indians magazine and lives with his family in Santa Ynez, California.
'Buck Brannaman is part of a lineage of skilled horsemen, and for the horses he works with, it is about trust and understanding, not submission." - Robert Redford "When it comes to horses, Buck Brannaman is part guru, part psychologist, and all cowboy. He's a 19th-century man in a 21st-century world, and his life is at once inspirational and instructive." - Tom Brokaw "I've started horses since I was 12 years old and have been bit, kicked, bucked off and run over. I've tried every physical means to contain my horse in an effort to keep from getting myself killed. I started to realize that things would come much easier for me once I learned why a horse does what he does. This method works well for me because of the kinship that develops between horse and rider. Horses and life, it's all the same to me." - Buck Brannaman
