I've probly said this before, but if you mute the TV when you watch some of these NH trainers, prepare to be surprised. I'm not saying they're mean or abusive. I'm saying they're doing things that you don't realize. They're being just as hard as any good non-NH trainer. But they make up soft names for it so you're ok with it. They cover it up by distracting you with sweet talk while they're getting rough. I don't give a **** if they have to tune a horse up....just don't try to sugar-coat it, call it like it is.
Now I'm probably fixin to step on toes because I'm going to talk about Buck. Yes BUCK the one they made the movie about. He's a great hand. A cowboy's cowboy. I could only wish to be as knowledgable and handy as he is. He's a legend and has helped thousands of people. But.....he does the same thing! I don't see him as an NH trainer, but he is a clinitian. I've watched the movie probably 4 times on Netflix. I like it. But I notice when he has to "take ahold" of one, he starts sounding alot like an NH trainer. This happens more than once in the movie. You guys may love Buck but you know I'm telling the truth. At one point, he was getting after a gal's horse and while he's yanking, he says he thinks as much of this horse as one of his own. Bull snot!!! Buck Brannaman will never convince me that he values that spoiled colt as much as his bridle horses. . . . I wouldn't..... Anyway, I think he's my favorite if I was gonna follow a person's training or something like that. It's just unnerving to hear the bs. I could watch ole Buck all day with the sound off.
