This is a beautiful, heart wrenching documentary. Watch it with your consciousness and heart open, and you will receive layers of teachings.

While I loved most of the content -- the story is interesting, and certainly, Buck has earned his place as a hard working Horse Whisperer, given his abuse as a child -- I would have LOVED to know more about his method with the horses. But -- apparently -- that costs money :) !

A beautiful, heart-filled documentary about a man who trains horses. This might be one of the best docs I've ever seen. And the cinematography is out of this world. Brought more than a few tears to my eyes - he has quite a painful history. Amazing he is who he is today.

The cover will make you think COWBOY but the content will show you the PATRON SAINT for all who love horses.

Liked it a lot. We get to learn a lot about people and horses, and how horse's behaviour reflect the owner's behaviour. And we learn a lot about Buck and his life voyage. It is all very interesting.

As an urbanite, I have had very limited contact with horses, and I personally question whether riding any animal is abuse. Nonetheless, “Buck” is an informative and engaging documentary.

Documentary on a horse trainer

Wonderful documentary on horse training (only sounds dull) which is really about how to successfully communicate with animals as well as people. Loved it - and as a added bonus, it has a very funny joke at the end.

This documentary of humane horse trainer Buck Brannaman will enthrall all animal lovers; even the most experienced equestrians can benefit from seeing alternative ways to partner with a horse. Too bad there are not more like him. It's not a scripted drama but has many dramatic moments. Gives some insight into Robert Redford's "The Horse Whisperer".
