7 Clinics with Buck Brannaman: Complete Series Discs 1–7
Buck Brannaman and Cedar Creek Productions
“The biggest challenge in creating the documentary BUCK was taking over 300 hours of footage and cutting it down to 88 minutes,” says filmmaker Cindy Meehl. “We still hear audiences saying they didn’t want the film to end—they want more Buck!” Introducing 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN, a series of seven DVDs featuring over 10 hours of instructional footage collected during the making of the award-winning film.
In the complete series, viewers travel to several Buck Brannaman clinics to learn important groundwork and riding techniques, including: hooking on, leading, halter work, bridling, saddling, backing up, working in circles and half-circles, using the flag, firming up, good riding form and position, finding the release and a soft feel, attaining collection, moving off the leg, riding serpentines, “getting the life up” (finding animation), perfecting the stop, turn-on-the-haunches, transitions, jumping, and finding the feel. In addition, Buck provides ways to solve problems, including crowding, biting, striking, fidgeting, rushing, anxiousness and sensitivity, and bad attitudes. The series ends with Buck’s best advice, tips, and ideas about working with, riding, and training horses, as he best tells it—forthright, honest, and with the integrity the world has come to expect of one of the finest horsemen of our time.
Total Running Time 10 hours.
These DVDS are “All Region” so will be playable in all countries.
Buck Brannaman travels extensively throughout the country and the world each year, teaching an approach to training and riding horses that he learned from spending years as a student of the renowned horsemen Tom Dorrance and Ray Hunt. His natural horsemanship approach benefits all levels and types of riders, and has inspired and revolutionized the equestrian world. Due to the success of the highly acclaimed 2011 documentary BUCK, a new awareness of his methodology has extended the reach of his wisdom far into the mainstream (brannaman.com).
Cindy Meehl met Buck Brannaman at one of his horsemanship clinics in 2003. She founded Cedar Creek Productions, LLC, in 2008 in order to make the feature documentary film BUCK, which has been hailed by audiences and critics around the world.
