- Part 1 – The Snaffle Bit
- Part 2 – The Hackamore
- Part 3 – The Two-Rein & The Bridle
In the tradition of fine horsemanship, Buck Brannaman presents his video series, The Making of a Bridle Horse. For the first time, the traditional four-step technique is completely explained and demonstrated in Buck's easy going, visual style in this four-part, three-video series.
Part 1: The Snaffle Bit starts from the first ride. You'll learn the ways of the snaffle and "the soft feel" while applying them to the walk, trot and lope. Buck will even help you with your roping. This tape is a must for any riding discipline.
Part 2: The Hackamore takes you and your horse on to the next step in your schooling. You'll learn how to use the horsehair mecate and move your horse through all gates in the elegant, braided hackamore (bosal) working towards a total communication with the lightest commands.
Part 3: The Two-Rein & The Bridle is the final of this three-part series featuring Buck and the process of taking you and your horse through the next two steps – into the two-rein and then, and ultimately, into the bridle. Stress is placed on the proper gear as one progresses on. From bits to tying the bosalita, Buck shows you step-by-step, the ways of classic vaquero horsemanship. A true one-of-a-kind classic.
