Product Description

Continuing the noted horseman’s quest to help and heal. In his best-selling The Faraway Horses, Buck Brannaman, extraordinary trainer and acknowledged inspiration for The Horse Whisperer, described how he found his calling and honed his art and craft. In the year since the book’s publication and following its widespread acclaim, the universal application of Brannaman’s approach to interpersonal relationships has struck a responsive chord in the equestrian community and with the public at large.

Believe continues to chronicle the man’s efforts as a catalyst and a mentor as we meet thirteen people with whom he has worked. Through their own words and through Brannaman’s perceptive introductions to each essay, we experience first-hand the hope and confidence that he has instilled in these individuals and in their horses. Among them are:

• Sherry, who learned to replace fear of the unknown with knowledge of reality;

• Theresa, who, through teaching her horse to accept the saddle and bridle, acquired patience and a sense of timing;

• Sissy, who credits her ability to cope with a life-threatening illness to Brannaman’s inspiring words and deeds;

• Nicole, who developed confidence and a sense of teamwork while her horse learned not to fear independence;

• Diane, who discovered the value of releasing life’s past traumas;

• Shane, who saw horses forge a bond between himself and the son he thought he had lost forever.

    This is the first book I ever read when I started riding. I didn’t think much of it at the time. But now I’ve found that it was a useful book, just not in the way I thought it was. I would recommend that people read it.

    This is an excellent book for anyone wanting to learn more about Buck Brannaman. This is especially useful if you learn best from stories rather than explicit instructions, as I do.

    A fantastic book for those on the path to great horsemanship. It offers insights from Buck plus personal stories handpicked to represent common struggles along the way. Well written and easy to relate to your own horsemanship successes and struggles. I highly recommend!

    This is book is a collection of stories written by people who have ridden with Buck for a while. The first time I read this book, I didn’t think much of it, but when i came back to it and reread it a few months later, I discovered it does have quite a lot to offer. Many of the stories ring true and were helpful with horses I’m working right now or have in the past. The notes from Buck are all interesting, and while not strictly a training manual, this is sure a guide to getting along with horses.
