I had to be put on the list if I wanted to go but there are few spots for those too. My husband and I got sighned up for 2 days to watch since his classes were full and there $25 a person each day!

Yes, you can just show up. No, it's not free.

I saw Buck last month. He doesn't sugar coat things, I really like that about him. He was doing demo clinics at the Hoosier Horse Fair so it wasn't an intensive all day thing but it was really good for a 2 hour presentation. I do plan to attend a clinic with a horse in the future.

I got to talk with him afterwards for a bit, he's a really nice guy.

I think I'll find one to go watch this year. If I like it I'll maybe try to ride next year. I haven't heard anything bad about Buck ever. But I'm not really one to go by other peoples opinions anyway.

I went to one of his 3-day clinics back in March. Didn't ride, but did have to purchase tickets. Like all others said, he doesn't sugarcoat anything and is very black and white, but that's what I really enjoy about him. He had his daughter with him and they were breaking colts, among other things. Also got to watch him hop on a Grand Prix level dressage horse, and then do a jumping course with another. It was the Legacy of Legends clinic with several top trainers in their specific disciplines. Highly recommend.

If Buck ever came to Australia, I would jump at the chance to go to a clinic. His documentary was incredible, and I really admire his style. His methods are very similar to that of a man I met a few years ago, and this man never had a horse put a foot wrong.

I am envious of all of you who have seen/will see him work in person.

He comes to Bay Harbor MI usually every two years in September (I know at least one time he has done back to back years because he loves it so much here :)) and I was fortunate enough to be a stable hand at the equestrian center he comes to when he came. He is amazing-a true horseman and cowboy. Be prepared for the truth, no sugar coating, a good sense of humor and some amazing advice. As someone else said, you do have to get used to riding in large groups, but everything I saw was controlled. Nothing crazy happened and our clinic was full (as are all of them lol) Being able to audit is just as informational, not boring at all.

Saw him over the weekend in WV & he was very much worth the drive! As a spectator, the price of entry was $25, which isn't too bad considering the wealth of information you leave with. I attended two classes (a separate set of riders in each) between two days and the experiences were different. The first class was filled with decent riders who seemed able to take Buck's direction and apply it immediately, within reason, so Buck was a little more hands off. The second group was not as sharp, (which probably had a lot to do with it being rainy, the grounds being less than ideal and the horses being in bad moods), and Buck had to do a little more one on one instructing. He adjusted to the class' needs, which was helpful, and even took questions from the audience throughout the session. As most have said before, he is very straightforward but he also has a pleasant sense of humor. I didn't expect him to be as funny. His team was polite. I even saw one of his team members helping a student iron out some issues she was having with her mare after her class had ended.

I could go on and on, but I will spare everyone. I look forward to attending more of his clinics in the future and one day when I have my own horse I will certainly take part in one!

Buck Brannaman is one of the few "clinicians" that I will follow. His methods have not become commercialized. Despite the fact that he is a better horseman then many of the clinicians out there today. I have met him a few times, he is a real quality guy, that can rope with the best of them.
