i have found a site with the 7 clinics dvds by Buck Brannaman. it is on sale and i was wondering how many of you think they are worth buying. i have read the Faraway Horses and Believe and i have the documentary. Just curious if the 7 DVDs have helped any of you, or if any of you thought it was too confusing. i have read mixed reviews on Amazon. i tried doing 2 searches for previous threads on this, but could not find anything.
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes buy them - I waited a long time and wish I hadn't waited so long. The exercises have been invaluable for my horse's suppleness and responsiveness. So much so that I've signed up for a BB clinic in April!
I broke down and bought the set a month ago, and it's been well worth the money.
I have all the DVDs in Buck's Bridle Horse series too, and while good, too often I'd have trouble figuring out how to do an exercise because Buck just does it so fast and subtle and the horse responds perfectly. I'd end up playing a clip over and over again trying to figure out WTH he just did with his hands and legs.
Watching the clinic go-ers make mistakes and be slow and clumsy at times and get corrected was what I needed to really "get" the exercises.

Love, love, love them! I bought my own set after watching the set the library has (it's great having a horse person in charge of our local library system). The library only lets me have them a week at a time and I want to watch them over and over.
