A documentary about an extraordinary rider & horse trainer Buck Brannaman who spends much of his time in his truck hauling his horses to clinics throughout the US. The difficulties of Buck's early life make him an inspiration. Horses are fortunate to have trainers like Buck. Unfortunately for horses, there are people in the horse world, such as the woman with the 19 stallions, whose stupidity, ignorance & lack of responsibility do great harm to horses. One of those cases when the human being should be put down, not the horse. But, I guess she liked the attention she got at the clinic & in the film. Credit to Buck for calling her on her stupidity & irresponsibility. I would have liked to see more detail about & explanation of his training methods. I found the film hard to watch in part because of the harsh mistreatment of Buck as a child & the incident with the young stallion.
