Buck Brannaman Quotes: If the human isn't responsible for their role in the horse human relationship, horses just don't get along very well. So that's why I say it's all about the human meeting the bill to fit the horse in any given situation. But don't expect the horse to always fit the human.

Buck Brannaman Saying: Some guys make their careers off one horse; kind of a trick horse, a wonder horse. I'm not knocking that, but for me I'm trying to get better and study. That means taking out new horses. It's a life study. When I've finished a horse, I turn him out and basically stop riding him, except taking him to the occasional branding so I can enjoy him.

Saying about Buck Brannaman: The horse responds to comfort, they respond to peace better than about anything else you could do. All he wants you to do is just leave him alone. So if the horse responds to you and you give him a little peace and comfort that means more to him than anything.

Quote about Buck Brannaman: If I had a horse buck with me now, I'm a little disappointed. It's not the end of the world, but I'm a little disappointed if I couldn't keep the horse out of trouble, whereas it used to be a source of pride, and now it's sort of source of shame if I let the horse get lost.

Buck Brannaman Sayings: As a rider, you must slowly and methodically show your horse what is appropriate. You also have to discourage what's inappropriate, not by making the inappropriate impossible, but by making it difficult so that the horse himself chooses appropriate behavior. You can't choose it for him; you can only make it difficult for him to make the wrong choices. If, however, you make it impossible for him to make the wrong choices, you're making war.
