Product Description

In this twelve part DVD series, Yukon, a five year old mustang, is started under saddle. Each day's lesson from day one through his first ride outside is filmed raw and uncut just as it happened. No fancy editing. No cut-a-ways. No music or special effects. What you will see is how Smokie works with a colt, pure and simple. He explains each day's lesson, the methods used, Yukon's progress and the setbacks with no interruptions, or the bad stuff left out to make a more perfect film. This is just like it would be if you train, or start, a horse at home. Complete with the fricken chicken running around, birds chirping, dogs barking, and all the other distractions you would have in the real world.This series will show you exactly what it takes to start a colt, how it is done, and the obstacles you will face if you want to try this at home. Lessons include. Round pen work, Groundwork, Desensitizing and sacking out, Rail work, and Saddling. The first ride, and progressive rides in the arena and outside. Ending with the final ride and owner riding her new green broke equine partner. If you are contemplating starting, restarting, or just doing some tuning up of your current horse, this video series will give you more in one package than all the others combined. Filmed by Vickie Schwabe.

About the Actor

Smokie Brannaman grew up on a 5000-acre horse and cattle ranch in Southwestern Montana. Working with horses, cattle and rodeoing as a professional trick roper was his way of life as a youngster. Upon graduating from high school, Smokie chose to serve his country in the United State Coast Guard. Smokies military duties did not always allow much time to spend with his horses, he never the less, rode and trained horses of his own and others throughout his military career. Smokie retired in 2000 from the Coast Guard and worked as a Corporate Operations Manager for a security company. But he soon realized that his true enjoyment came from being around horses, training, riding and helping others with their horses. After working for 2 years as a stable manager for a large boarding stable, Smokie hired on at Ots Sunrise Farm to work with the young horses halter breaking, ground work and starting horses under saddle to progress to more advanced training. Smokie utilizes the training methods of his brother Buck Brannaman, Jeff Griffith, Clinton Anderson and others, as well as his own techniques learned during a lifetime of working with horses. He is also a published author of two books, Whisper This Not to your horse, to yourself, and his newest book Equiknowlogy 101 and other various training DVDs. Smokie lives in Greenleaf Wisconsin and has three grown children, Kat, Travis and Jason. He raises and trains registered quarter horses of his own, which he uses as, Cavalry horses for his hobby, Civil War reenacting, and in Wild West shows throughout the Midwest.

First, I'd like to eliminate the M. Lindsay comment above that obviously doesn't understand horsemanship or anything close to it. Smokie Brannaman is one of the two most knowledgable horseman alive today, the other is his brother Buck Brannaman. This is an excellent training tool for any rider or trainer/horseman, unless ofcourse if you don't understand horses and obviously don't understand that a horse is an extension of yourself. There is NEVER a situation that is perfect, accept the chickens (not birds) and put this DVD set at the top of your list for purchase!!! VACOWGURL-MT

raw & uncut isn't as good as it sounds. Background sounds of chirping birds makes it hard to watch,that sound is so annoying. Got thru day 1&2 on 1st disc that was all I could take. This will be thrown on the "not going to watch" pile of DVD's Don't waste ur money not very useful aside from all the chirping noise.
