Buck Brannaman, known to many as the inspiration behind the novel and the feature film The Horse Whisperer, travels extensively throughout the country and the world each year, teaching an approach to training and riding horses that he learned from renowned horsemen Tom Dorrance and Ray Hunt. This approach has inspired and revolutionized the equestrian world, and Brannaman’s story, shared in the hit 2011 documentary BUCK, has extended the reach of his wisdom far into the mainstream.
