I thoroughly recommend watching Buck's videos - he's got quite a few on YouTube.
I received Buck's snaffle horse DVD for Christmas, and it's very good. I like the way he works with horses (as well as the guy in the vid Tiny posted).

He moves his feet a little bit too much for me. But other than that I think he does a good job, smart to have a 2nd horse in the round pen that calms the young horse down :0)

There are many wonderful trainers walking around who just don't have the big sponsorship behind them. A gal went after a big sponsor and initially tho't it a dream come true until she read the fine print. She'd basically have no life of her own for 5 years and they could break the contract at any time. She couldn't, but they could. She opted to not go for it.
