Master horseman Buck Brannaman, the real-life Horse Whisperer, continues the chronicle of his life as trainer and mentor in Believe, where we meet thirteen remarkable people whose lives he has affected. Through their accounts of help and healing and through Brannaman’s own introductions, the reader is inspired by the hope and confidence that he instilled in these individuals. This updated edition includes a new foreword, introduction, and account by one of Brannaman’s longtime observers.
• 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.
