Another Good Movie

I just watched "Buck", and loved it!

Now, I don't ride horses (or even go near them) so I wasn't sure if I was going to like this movie.  But it's amazing.  Buck Brannaman worked with Robert Redford on "The Horse Whisperer" and he runs clinics around the country on handling horses.

One of the people in the film comments that the folks who are best at working with damaged horses are in a way damaged themselves.  And Buck endured horrific abuse by his father as a child.  He overcame that abuse, and his story is really inspiring.  To listen to this man's gentle voice and watch him work with horses (and people) is just fascinating.

Two thumbs up for this one!
