    I reckon that would be fun to watch.

    The trailer - shows a lot of the same methods that Monty Roberts uses. And Monty Roberts has a similar family history too (abusive father).

    ....Thank youuuuuuu

    Buck was a Student of Ray Hunt and Tom Dorrance...they are the roots of the tree that grew into Natural Horsemanship (Horse whispering). Pat Parrelli, Buck Brannaman, Monty Roberts, John Lyons and all those others are the branches.

    Buck Brannaman was the person the movie "Horse Whisperer" was based on, even though Monty took credit....Buck was actually the Horse Wrangler and Stuntman for Robert Redford.

    We are Students of Buck Brannaman, Pat Parelli and John Lyons. Hubby was a Pat Parelli Instructor, until they got too greedy all they wanted was lots of money out of Students....But Buck is our favourite Mentor. he is a gentleman and a true horse lover, it is all about the horse ( or animals really). Great with a rope too, very kind to his cattle...We have seen him do some amazing things, roping horses and cattle, doing them no harm at all and doctoring them in these huge paddocks.....nearly fell of my horse when he told us he had only a little spread of 5000 acres in Montana.

    Now the term horse whispering came from doing things quietly (gently) instead of loud (rough)......And is all about horse psychology

    PS we have ordered the video LOL.......

    I don't think Monty took credit on purpose. As best I could tell from his live show, books and other interviews, he was very uncomfortable with being given credit.

    Though reading his first book - you'd think he'd come up with the idea all on his own. It's possible I suppose but he was hanging out with a lot of horse folk and horses at the time.

    The northwest and west coast ( California, Oregon, Nevada, Montana and such where all these guys come from have the history of Californian the reins-man, which comes from the Vaquero, which came from the Spanish and that is where also the Spanish riding School ( now at Vienna, but was from Spain) of old comes into the picture. That is where a lot of the ground work originates.......

    Monty ddi not invent it, and neither did Ray Hunt or Tom Dorrance........It was there and was just taught by them and refined.

    I have been to Clinics with all of them, 80's and 90's....Monty used to say he was the original, but he got so much flack from it that he changed that......I have been at a Clinic wher he said so himself...i still like the guy. But he is not as good on a horse as the others. I like his Round-pen skills and he taught me how to connect and we still use join-up with all the horses we get on the first day. I used to love the old Pat Parelli, before he married Linda..his other wife was a gem and Pat was not so money hungry and he has incredible skill......We did all our bareback work, line dancing, ground work fun and just lots of games with him. But Linda turned him into a money making machine and we quit. We were his Co-Ordinator and Instructor until 99....We went our own way....

    Buck was the man with riding skill and rope skill....he does amazing dressage work in his Western saddle...beautiful to watch. he has great empathy with horses, but does not suffer fools (people), just like Ray Hunt didn't either. Ray was a great man, but sadly passed

    Anyway, I could go on forever about these guys...having spent s much time with them and following them, they are all great. Buck and Pat are also really good dog trainers Horses and dogs just go hand in hand....(hoof in paw) Monty's dogs were terrible LOL.......
