I had to have "Buck", have "The Making of a Bridle Horse" set, and the clinic set is next.
Needless to say, I'm truly iimpressed
I really enjoyed the 7 clinics series. It's probably some of the best training DVD's I've seen.

I seriously love that movie. I've watched it 3 or 4 times already. My biggest dream in the world would be to take Henny to a colt breaking clinic. How awesome would that be?!

I believe in the movie she said he was already turned out with some of her other studs? I don't quite remember. But I swear, there is no going back for that horse. He's a dummy foal, brain damaged and spoiled. He will never NOT be aggressive and he will never NOT be a danger to himself or others. I don't care who you are, even BB. You could work with him every day for a year instilling manners into him but you will never know when he will explode and kill you. If he had just been a spoiled horse, hell yeah he could have been fixed. But with brain damage as severe as his(he wasn't even breathing when they found him) he will never be fully there and be able to fully comprehend every situation. Sad, indeed.

I loved that movie! Came across it on a page we use to watch movies (like netflix but its free) If anyone wants the site pm me and Ill get you the info for it.
I really feel bad for that stud. First off she should have gelded him asap! He is not stud quality and I dont think it has helped him at all in how he is. Its truly sad what those people turned him into. But like Kayella mentioned its not just that, its the brain damage too. The smart responsible thing to do would have either let him run free on many acres and just love him from afar or else put him down.

“The horse is a mirror to your soul. Sometimes you might not like what you see. Sometimes you will. -BB
I think of this quote all the time especially when my horse is acting up. It reminds to me to look at myself first and not automatically blame the horse.

Eh, I really didn't like the movie, even though the guy has good intentions. That lady who had the stallion just really pissed me off so I didn't watch the rest. But if you like Buck, You'd Really love 'Wild Horse Wild Ride.' By far that is one of the best horse training movies I've seen, it made my heart melt lol.

That is a really good one too! I enjoyed that movie a lot. If I had the time and resources I would love to help out like those people do

I too always wondered about his fate and then found out the info on the net by accident (was looking for something else). If it was me, firstly he wouldn't be a stallion and secondly I would have sent him to a rehab specialist for an extended amount of time (of course, I like to also think I wouldn't have let things get so out of hand to start with therefore he wouldn't have had to go to the rehab trainer to begin with) - but such is the nature of hindsight and distance observations.

It is for sure on my buy list, and I will be looking for his training video once I have money.

I truly believe that my horse is a mirror to my soul. People say I have to beat the crap outta him to get him to submit, but I never would submit to that either. A gentle hand may be slower, but in the end the results are worth it. Someday my horse and I will have a great testimony to share. I saw the movie "Buck" with a couple of really good friends a few years ago at a theater very far from where we live. They are not horse people, they are Christians, and they told me about it.
