Buck Brannaman, William Reynolds – The Faraway Horses


“I’ve started horses since I was 12 years old and have been bit, kicked, bucked off and run over. I’ve tried every physical means to contain my horse in an effort to keep from getting myself killed. I started to realize that things would come much easier for me once I learned why a horse does what he does. This method works well for me because of the kinship that develops between horse and rider.”

Buck Brannaman

In The Faraway Horses, Buck Brannaman shares his renowned methods for horse training and provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse into Robert Redford’s movie The Horse Whisperer, for which he was the technical adviser.

I have never met a man like Buck Brannamen. I read this book and knew I had to meet him someday. So many things hit home and I found myself thinking more in depth about my own childhood and why I am so drawn to horses.
I did get the chance to go to one of his clinics but I did not get the opportunity to speak to him personally. I am sure I would have choked up if I did.
Great book. I dare you not to get emotional after reading his story.
