In Discs 3 & 4, viewers learn some of Buck's most important lessons when working under saddle, including the all-important release, which teaches a soft feel and allows the horse to attain collection and willingly move off the leg. Additional instruction covers rider form and position, riding serpentines, "getting the life up" (finding animation), perfecting the stop, and backing up.

In Discs 5, 6, & 7, Buck shares more lessons on horseback-such as turn-on-the-haunches, transitions, jumping, and finding the feel-as well as ways to solve problems, including crowding, biting, striking, fidgeting, rushing, anxiousness and sensitivity, and bad attitudes.

The series ends with Buck's best advice, tips, and ideas about working with, riding, and training horses-sage knowledge imparted with the dry wit that the world has come to expect of one of the finest horsemen of our time.
