Synopsis: The Making of a Bridle Horse-Buck Brannaman
The first tape of Buck Brannaman’s series in the Making of a Bridle Horse is a superb teaching aid in taking a horse from a snaffle all the way to a bridle. From his set guide lines, Buck moves his audience through basic maneuvers one can do when riding a horse in a snaffle. These maneuvers include instruction in:
• one-rein stop
• backing a circle
• soft feel at the walk and trot
• exercises in loping
• working outside
Buck’s sense of confidence in the horse makes his techniques and instruction very manageable for the beginner rider. His DVD masters lighting and sound, resulting in a perfect performance of both horse and rider.
