How do they compare to Buck's other horsemanship DVDs?
What makes these 7 discs unique to any instructional series, is that these DVDs are taken from over 320 hours of film footage that was shot while making the documentary BUCK. Therefore, you have movie theater quality and an abundance of great material! Also, because these were filmed in the last few years, it shows what Buck is doing in his clinics now. In other words, it's like getting to go to several of Buck's clinics and watch what he currently teaches. We understand that Buck’s clinics are now regularly sold out, even for auditors/spectators, so this would be a perfect way to get to "go to several clinics," and get a front row seat. Of course, we highly recommend going to see the real thing!
There are tons of footage of horsemanship lessons as well as groundwork classes. Our focus groups have also benefited from seeing the students in the classes work at what he is teaching and see him directly instruct them.
We don't include any cow work, because we were aiming at a broad horsemanship audience (both English and Western). I did not feel qualified to edit roping and cattle work. However, Buck does talk about how these lessons apply to cattle work. As Buck says, good riding is good riding, no matter what discipline you are in!
Who did the music and where can I get the soundtrack?
Templeton Thompson did an amazing job for us on this project! Listen for her songs When I Get That Pony Rode, A Horse that Can Fly, and Lesson in There Somewhere playing over the end credits (different one on each set). Visit her website to listen to these and other tracks. Sam Gay (Tempy's husband) did most of the beautiful music cues that you hear in the menus!
Who is Betty Staley?
You may recognize Betty Staley from her appearances in the film, BUCK. Cindy thought that she was the perfect addition to Buck's teachings because she has ridden with him for over 20 years and sponsored his clinics for over 15 years. Her articulate and joyous insights are truly helpful to explain concepts that may be new to some riders. An accomplished dressage rider and horse trainer, Betty is also a well known artist and writer. Her recent instructional book and DVD, co-authored with Ellen Eckstein, is called Bringing it Together, An Approach to a Lighter and Happier Dressage Horse.
