“The biggest challenge in creating the documentary BUCK was taking over 300 hours of footage and cutting it down to 88 minutes,” says filmmaker Cindy Meehl. “We still hear audiences saying they didn’t want the film to end—they want more Buck!”
Introducing 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN, a series of seven DVDs featuring over 10 hours of clinic footage shot at seven locations (7 clinics) during the making of the award-winning film.
Buck Brannaman travels extensively throughout the country and the world each year, teaching an approach to training and riding horses that he learned from spending years as a student of the renowned horsemen Tom Dorrance and Ray Hunt. His unique horsemanship approach benefits all levels and types of riders, and has inspired and revolutionized the equestrian world. Due to the success of the highly acclaimed 2011 documentary BUCK, a new awareness of his methodology has extended the reach of his wisdom far into the mainstream.
Cindy Meehl met Buck Brannaman at one of his horsemanship clinics in 2003. She founded Cedar Creek Productions, LLC, in 2008 in order to make the feature documentary film BUCK, which has been hailed by audiences and critics around the world. She was inspired to continue her mission of getting Buck's horsemanship methods out to a broader audience in a cinematic format. "It is the best way I could think of to help horses and their riders find a pathway to unprecedented communication and harmony." Meehl lives in Connecticut with her husband, writer Brian Meehl, two daughters, four dogs, and two horses.
