Buck is a humble, deep and intuitive man, and the eponymous subject of a new documentary.
A child star from an abusive background, Buck's life was turned around by a loving foster mother, a cowboy lifestyle, but mostly a love for horses. He's the guy Robert Redford described as "the real deal".
Buck roams the US 'breaking' horses. But when he does it, nothing gets broken. Buck's motto is: "Gentle in what you do, firm in how you do it". Instead of using fear to tame, he fixes the fear by drawing on a seemingly bottomless reservoir of empathy.
What makes sense for horses makes sense for people; the stream of humane insights creates a documentary that is quietly mind-blowing.
Buck will be in cinemas this Thursday February 16, and we have 10 in-season double passes to give away (valid in Australia) thanks to the folks at Madman. To enter, email here with your name and address before February 17.
