I like him. He's down to Earth, has a sense of humour and is refreshingly straight forward. I'd love to attend one of his clinics.

If you chat with him, or listen to interviews, he doesn't want to market :) He's more of the mindset that if someone wants to listen, great. If not, he's sure not going to push his opinions. His daughter and her best friend go to the same school I do, they're so down to earth and wonderful!

I personally love Buck. I compare myself to him, not because I'm a fabulous horse trainer, but my demons and personality are very similar to his. I can relate to him in so many ways. Then, when this translates over with the horses....I get him. I really can totally understand his methods and ways of thinking. He is one of my mentors for sure.

Given all the clinicians out there, IMHO, he is by far the best. As far as I'm concerned, he's a horseman first and a clinician second which is something sorely lacking in most the DVD trainers.

I'd love to have the opportunity to spend some time at one of his clinics, not only for the horse knowledge he's got, but also because he seems like someone that I would just really like to sit and visit with.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I'm about the same way.

Honestly? I think he's cool as sh*t.

I wouldn't, personally, stick him in with Parelli or Anderson myself.

The only reason Buck is making such an impact in the public training world is because he is much much more traditional and takes a more "old" approach on training horses. There are a few things in his method I disagree with, but most of it is great and is bringing the old back in. I like that. I've never liked NH, and Buck is defiantly not an NH trainer. He is bringing the traditional way of training horses back into the public eye. I like and appreciate that.
