What do you think about Buck Brannaman?

What do you think about Buck Brannaman? I have watched some of his videos and seen a documantary on him and I liked how he trained the horses. I honestly don't know why he isn't more popular than he is is so down to earth and good with horses. He understands what it is like to be afriad of someone because he was abused by his father when he was younger and that is part of why I like him so much is because he seems to truely understand what the horse is going through.

I think he is pretty popular. He just isn't as good a marketer as PP or CA. He is every bit as good a horseman if not better...probably better and I would love to take one of his workshops.

Cheers!

Honestly, he is the one clinician who I would really like to go to a clinic with my horse. I think he is honest and I would be interested in what he says. I am not a huge fan of games and buy my special rope etc. I think he is pretty simple but not afraid to correct a horse. Which I think would be interesting.

If you put all the popular clinicians together today and told me I could go spend 2 weeks with any one of them OR I could spend 2 days with Brannaman at the same price, I'd pick him hands down. No questions asked.

I think he's a good horse hand. You can definitely do well following his suggestions.

Kind of surprised when I see his name in the Natural Horsemanship section. He's just a cowboy who ended up spending more time working colts than focusing on the cattle (though he's decent at that, too). Pretty much what all cowboys are, and have been, around here.

Don't get me wrong, though, I'm very glad he gets out and helps people with their horses. He has a better than average way of explaining things and encouraging horse owners to do better.

Haha I was totally just about to post a topic on Buck! I think he's one of the very very few horseman in the world who truly understand every aspect of the horse. My younger sister rode in his clinic two years ago, and I actually just paid for my spot in his clinic this coming year! I cannot wait!
I believe that you can gain something from every horse trainer, good or bad. I'm really not one to follow one way of training but Buck's way certainly makes sense. I study all of his quotes, DVD's and YouTube videos and I really feel like anyone in any disapline can learn something from him.

Honestly, I would highly recommend auditing one of his clinics. He only comes to Canada once every two years - and so far I've only been able to audit once, but I got a lot out it. What I really like is that at the end of the day, people (riders and auditors) walk away feeling better about where their at with their horses and they get exciting wanting to apply what they learn from Buck. You know it's real when you're watching him work a horse, and you can see every change it makes. He's very much about the horse's mind and getting the mental part before the physical part. The biggest thing I've learned about Buck is that he tries to explain to people just how EASY working a horse really can be. We get caught up with these expectations and images of what things are suppose to look like that we sometimes miss out when our horse gives a try at where asking. TIMING, FEEL, and DIRECTION...It's amazing what all he can get done with a horse while applying those three things. They really are just three simple things that when even slightly incoorporated into whatever riding you do, can make the biggest change. Try it out!

He had a clinic just down the street from me , it was packed. I think overall he is a good trainer. I audited for the day. I like his demeanor and communication style with the horses.

There were way too many in the clinic though about 30 or so. For the amount of money they paid, they got no individual attention. Also it was funny, half the people there were dressed like him . Hard to find the right HIM in the crowd !
