I watched the documentary on Buck (It was called "Buck") a little while ago and was very impressed by him and his methods. I liked that he worked with the horse but was very firm and didn't let the animal get away with bad behavior. I also liked that he talked frank and honestly with the people as well. No sugar coating it for Buck. He just lays it all out there.
I was wondering if anyone has been to one of his clinics or ridden in one? All of his 2012 clinics are full but I am really considering riding in one of his "Horse 1" clinics next year. Comic and I could really benefit I think. He is a willing horse but sometimes I am at a loss as to how to communicate with him. He also has a pretty hard mouth due to racing and I'm having a hard time getting him to soften. I think Buck's clinic could really help us out. Any thoughts?
