BUCK BRANNAMAN & HORSE RUSH TV

Horse Rush was fortunate to be granted the only Buck Brannaman television interview and rights to film his only clinic in Australia.  Buck visits Australia once every few years to teach and educate thousands of die hard horse fans and Australian horse trainers in his phenomenal natural training methods. 

In his interview Buck opens up about his turbulent childhood, his teachers and discusses some horsemanship questions.

Buck was performing trick roping in television commercials at the age of six, who has started over 10,000 colts in his 20 years of clinic work, and who not only served as advisor on the set of Redford’s The Horse Whisperer, but was in fact the primary role model used by Nicolas Evans when he crafted the best selling novel bearing the same name.

Buck’s goal for clinics is to try to get humans to understand as much about their horse as he can help them to understand. 

“I can’t be all things to all people. I’m trying to share with them my experience which is obviously quite a bit more that my students. I want them to understand the horse and where he’s coming from and in turn, his life in general.”

Buck believes people come to his clinics because they’ve already been in trouble with their horse.  They are sometimes afraid and have lost confidence.  Buck believes the only way to overcome fear and become confident is to be able to learn more about the horse and where it’s coming from. 

“After a few days of observing a horse and rider, if that person has been with that horse for a while, I know probably more about the person that they would like me to know.” – Buck Brannaman
