Use horse show entrance

For over 30 years, Buck has been working with horses and their owners and is one of the world’s leading practitioners handling horses based on classical concepts from the California Vaquero tradition; 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.

Colt Starting Class


Buck has his own riders start the colts. Some of the finest hands in the country! The colts get the best start possible. Owners not
only observe everything that gets done with their colts but interact with "their rider" throughout the process and questions
answered by Buck. Rare opportunity for auditors to witness youngsters getting their first rides. Education, not force and violence.
Doesn't get any better than this! Preference given to un-started colts.
