I like Buck. His no nonsense style and plain talk appeal to me.
When the film came out in the UK Monty Roberts leapt right on to the bandwagon and really did sell himself as a Horse Whisperer and since Buck was never mentioned or stuck his hand up the award went to Monty - in fact I would say its only since the film was made about Buck that he became well known in the UK and appeared on some TV stations talking about himself - always sounding so modest & humble
A lot of wannabee american cowboys jumped into bed with Monty and sucked it all in - these had to be all very amateur and gullible people as the average experienced UK horsepeople were pissed off that some american thought we needed to learn how to break horses without cruelty when our own non cruel methods had been successful for hundreds of years.

Her uninformed, ignorant rantings and insults come across loud and clear, so I hardly think it's a 'cultural misunderstanding'.

You're flattering me, really!

Centuries ago, they already knew that...

Have fun guys!

Oh come on now! We use bits, so obviously we whip and spur our horses. Didn't you get the memo?

I don't use whips, I use a 2X4 with nails in it. Works so much better than any wimpy whip!
