Buck Brannaman teaching a foundation class in Dayton, 2013

Dayton’s 2014 Buck Brannaman clinic will be June 28-July 1st and July 3-6th.


Currently both the Colt Class and the H1 class in the first clinic, June 28-July 1 are full.  Please email us if you would like to be on the waiting list.

Here is the registration form for both clinics.

Our 2013 back-to-back clinics were such a hit we’ve decided to offer this once again in 2014. Those starting colts had a rare opportunity to roll their freshly started colts right into the Horsemanship 1 class a day later in the second clinic session. Eight days of working with Buck in one place.

In 2014, Colt Starting & Horsemanship 1 will be offered June 28th – July 1st, followed by a second Horsemanship1 & Ranch Roping July 3rd – 6th. Those starting colts in the first session will be expected to continue on to the second session’s Horsemanship 1 class. Both of these classes require you to be a confident rider. Riding with Buck in the past will be a plus as he would like to bring the colts further along this year.  This is about as close to being invited to one of Buck’s Ranch Clinics as you will find. We have designed this combination for that purpose. Anyone interested in auditing Buck should not miss this pair of clinics.

Classes start daily at 9:00am and 1:30pm. The cost is $700 per entry, except for Ranch Roping, which is $750 per entry (includes cattle charge).

Stall fees and other related options such as camping will be available after the first of the year once we have the information from our county officials.

We still have openings in all four classes.  A $200 nonrefundable deposit per class at this time will secure your spot. Please send your phone number and email address with your deposit.  Final payment and forms will be due April 15th.  Forms will be sent to those who have secured a spot via email in March. (Please contact us with questions as to qualifications for these classes.)

Send to Robert Phinney, PO Box 4, Dayton WA 99328. All checks payable to: “BUCK BRANNAMAN CLINIC”. Your spot is secure only upon receipt of deposit. 

Spectator fee: $30 per person per day (no advance signup necessary) payable on site.

Sometimes a film comes along that answers a question that you didn't realize you had. At the Sundance Film Festival this year, that movie is "Buck", an exceptional slice of Americana about the charismatic real-life horse whisperer, an earthy, soft-spoken philosopher who can tame troubled souls, be they man or beast.  Visit Buck the movie website.
