    I really like Buck. I've followed CA, PP, and others, but he of all of them makes the most sense. We have his 7 Clinics series. Of all the training DVDs I've seen, his are the best and one of the cheaper sets. It doesn't answer everything and isn't a substitute for experience, but it gives you solid guidelines on how to take a horse from start to finish.
    I didn't get a chance to go to his clinic when he was in AZ this year, but my sister and friends all went. They had nothing but good things to say about him including my diehard PP friends. Buck even took time out to talk with my friends 6 year old son about horses at the meet and greet. Now, the boy's hero's are Iron Man, Jack Sparrow, Spiderman, and Buck.

    Just to say about the stallion. I am one of those people who is always the last to give up on other people and animals, but I do agree that it needs to be put down. Gelding him now may take away some of his attitude, but everything is so hard-wired into him that it will not make that dangerous part of the horse go away. Sadly, the horse is way past the red line, trying to fix the issues now will do no good. I am also convinced that the horse was not all there in his head to start with, so he's a handicapped horse whose been taught to be very dangerous... Not good.

    I never heard of Buck until hearing about his documentary. Watched it a few months ago and I gotta say, I respect the man. He's down to earth, uses philosophy that makes sense, and isn't afraid to tell someone that they are handling their horses wrong.

    I know and respect Buck. He is as gifted with western or English riders/horses. The dressage community in the Chapel Hill area used to get him here on a regular basis.
    He is down to earth without all that arrogant "razzle dazzle" so common in those people more interested in ego gratification than really helping the horses. He has an uncanny ability to crawl into a horse's brain and know what is really going on between that horse's ears.

    One funny story, though......

    The stallion in my avvie was a rank SOB before I started working with him. Before I knew the owner, they took him to a BB clinic to see if he could do something with him. Buck made a tactical error with him.

    He put this rude boy into a round pen with a gelding that belonged to Tom Brokaw (the news man). Bad idea.......Ab kicked the PooPoo out of that poor gelding!

    Several months later, after he was running around his paddock, I ASKED to work with him. There was just something about that horse.....

    The rest is history.

    Yeah rich out of staters keep coming in, buying the ranches, they are never at them, and they keep on driving the prices up where if a guy wants to get into ranching now it is pretty much impossible with out an alternative source of income.
