Clinics and Shows

Buster and Cheryl McLaury Clinics
June 18 - 21


Buster's philosophy of horse training is communication. Learning to talk horse to the horse. To convince him that he doesn’t need to be afraid of me and defend himself, so I can explain to him what it is I’m asking him to do. I know that the horse is capable and perfectly willing to do whatever you ask, if you can just present it to him in a manner that he understands. There is a fine line between respect and fear. I do not want him afraid of me, but I do want him to respect me. Horses operate on a pecking order with other horses.  A horse has an inherent need to know where he fits into the pecking order, whether it’s with horses or with a human. It doesn’t make any difference where he fits, just as long as he knows where he fits. When it’s between he and I, I’m going to be the leader – not the boss - the leader. There’s a difference

Buck "The Horse Whisperer" Brannaman Clinics
September 18 - 21


Buck Brannaman is a horse trainer and a leading practitioner within the field of natural horsemanship, which is a philosophy of working with horses based on the idea of working with the horse's nature, using an understanding of how horses think and communicate to train the horse to accept humans and work confidently and responsively with them. One of Buck's stated goals is to make the animal feel safe and secure around humans so that the horse and rider can achieve a true union.

One of  the great Buck Brannaman quotes: “Rather than helping people with horse problems, I’m helping horses with people problems.”
