After The Great Basin Buckaroo Gathering in Ogden, Utah we stopped off for a day in Heber City to film with Jim Hicks at Sage Creek Equestrian Center. Jim had some great horses to work with and I had fun seeing the progress made by a couple who had appeared in prior segments as well as seeing some new horses that we hadn’t filmed before.
Jim’s teaching style lends itself so well to what I’m trying to show in The Horseman’s Gazette… the process that these instructors go through in working with horses and on themselves. There is nothing removed or glossed over, you see how things shape up in the time it takes for them to get there. Jim is utterly patient with the process and the horses and it’s a joy to be able to capture that on film.
