Summary

Summary

Nearly every week of the year, Buck Brannaman is on the road, conducting horsemanship clinics in which he teaches horse owners how to better understand and work with their animals, creating a relationship based on trust and respect rather than force. His methods are grounded in communicating with horses, on reading their body language and making them feel secure so horse and rider can achieve a true union.


Author Notes

Buck Brannaman is a horse gentler -- not a horse "breaker" -- who has started more than 10,000 young horses in his clinics over the past eighteen years. He served as advisor on the set of Robert Redford's movie The Horse Whisperer. He is also a lifelong trick roper who performed around the world as a youngster. When not traveling on his busy clinic schedule, he lives with his wife, Mary, and their three daughters on the family ranch in Sheridan, Wyoming
William Reynolds is the associate publisher of Cowboys & Indians magazine and the author of The Cowboy Hat Book. He lives with his family in Santa Ynez, California
