Your horse is a mirror to your soul and sometimes you may not like what you see. Sometimes, you will. So says Buck Brannaman, a gentle spirit and sage on horseback who travels the country for nine gruelling months a year, helping horses with people problems.
Buck follows Brannaman from his abusive childhood to his phenomenally successful approach to horses: a real-life horse-whisperer, he eschews the violence of his upbringing and teaching people to communicate with their horses through leadership and sensitivity, not punishment. Buck possesses near magical abilities as he dramatically transforms horses and people with his understanding, compassion and respect.
A truly inspiring story about an unsung hero, Buck will have audiences laughing through their tears, overcome by the story of how an ordinary man has made an extraordinary life for himself, in spite of tremendous odds.

Comments about Buck:
A compelling documentary that invites you to not only marvel at the wisdom of Buck's theories on how to relate to horses but also fall in love with the man himself, who overcame many issues arising from his own upbringing and translated what he learned into a wonderful system for keeping our equine companions safe and contented.
I was sobbing at the end, not because the story is sad so much as because, amid the doom and gloom we read and hear about daily, it was a wonderful change to see truth and beauty personified in this man and the animals he relates to. An uplifting and joyful experience.
