Introducing 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN, a series of seven DVDs featuring over 10 hours of instructional footage collected during the making of the award-winning film. In this purchase all 7 DVDs are packaged together at a reduced price.In the first two DVDs, viewers travel to several Buck Brannaman clinics to learn important groundwork techniques, including: hooking on, leading, halter work, bridling, saddling, backing up, working in circles and half-circles, using the flag, and firming up. In Discs 3 & 4, viewers learn some of Buck's most important lessons when working under saddle, including the all-important release, which teaches a soft feel and allows the horse to attain collection and willingly move off the leg. Additional instruction covers rider form and position, riding serpentines, \"getting the life up\" (finding animation), perfecting the stop, and backing up. In Discs 5, 6, & 7, Buck shares more lessons on horseback-such as turn-on-the-haunches, transitions, jumping, and finding the feel-as well as ways to solve problems, including crowding, biting, striking, fidgeting, rushing, anxiousness and sensitivity, and bad attitudes. The series ends with Buck's best advice, tips, and ideas about working with, riding, and training horses-sage knowledge imparted with the dry wit that the world has come to expect of one of the finest horsemen of our time. Buck Brannaman travels extensively throughout the country and the world each year, teaching an approach to training and riding horses that he learned from spending years as a student of the renowned horsemen Tom Dorrance and Ray Hunt. His natural horsemanship approach benefits all levels and types of riders, and has inspired and revolutionized the equestrian world. Due to the success of the highly acclaimed 2011 documentary BUCK, a new awareness of his methodology has extended the reach of his wisdom far into the mainstream.BUCK MOVIEOne of the biggest documentary hits of the year, BUCK, a richly textured and visually stunning film, follows Buck Brannaman from his abusive childhood to his phenomenally successful approach to horses. A real-life \"horse-whisperer,\" he eschews the violence of his upbringing and teaches people to communicate with their horses through leadership and sensitivity, not punishment. Buck possesses near magical abilities as he dramatically transforms horses - and people - with his understanding, compassion and respect. A truly American story about an unsung hero, BUCK is about an ordinary man who has made an extraordinary life despite tremendous odds. 1e1e36bf2d
