I saw the movie just a few weeks ago for the first time as well. I thought it was very good, and would love to see more of his horsemanship. Of course, that was the part I liked- the whole 'biography' part was well done and interesting, but it's the horsemanship that I am fascinated by.

That quote strikes deep for me too. If you wanna go PP, my horse is a RBE, if you wanna go normal person, my horse is a friendly and sociable, but spooky/reactive little gelding who desperately wants to be directed and told how to please. I look at him when we're not being successful and have to think to myself- what do I need to do to change this pattern? He's just a horse, and he's going to be a horse. What do I need to do and change in my actions/training/presence/self to get the reaction or response I want to be getting rather than what I am getting right now.

Buck says it better than me though.

I thought the crazy stud was cute enough, but heard here he's still alive and siring foals. Hopefully without the oxygen deprivation and the 'being raised in a bedroom' thing like their sire, they'll be decent horses. The lady said she had tens of studs all running together in the movie though, you already know right there she's not quite right, so why be surprised that she didn't do what most of us would have considered the obvious solutions at any point in that stud's life? Nutty people usually stay nutty (myself included, though hopefully not in regards to horses).

his other videos are good too. They are just lessons with groundwork, lessons on horseback, problem solving, etc. He is awesome - I love Buck, haha!
