BUCK


THE FILM

“The Horse Whisperer” may be the stuff of Hollywood legend but the cowboy who inspired the novel and film is very real.  Buck Brannaman – master horseman, raconteur and philosopher – is a no-excuses cowboy who travels the world teaching a hard-won wisdom that is as much about human relationships as it is about horses.

BUCK is a feature length documentary that follows Brannaman from an abusive childhood to his extraordinary work as a teacher who possesses near magical abilities to transform problem horses – and troubled people – through an intuitive process of understanding and respect.  As Buck says, “Often instead of helping people with horse problems, I’m helping horses with people problems.”
