5-0 out of 5 stars Great Rodeo Album For the Road!
Being a pro bull rider, I of course like to hear music that relates to rodeo.So, I am a big Chris LeDoux fan.I've been hearing about another Chris that does rodeo music.I finally got a chance to hear it and love it.I'm glad there are still country artists who recognize that rodeo and the cowboy way of life is the core of country music.This is a great CD for rodeo and traditional country music fans.'Born to Ride' is my new anthem and 'Barstool Cowboy' is hilarious!Buy it and support real country music and rodeo!

5-0 out of 5 stars Like Bullriding & Rodeo Music? Buy it!
I love all of the rodeo music out there!But, I needed something new.I kept hearing 'Born to Ride' at rodeos.One night a drew a bonus bull that had thrown me twice and stomped my hand the third time.The fourth time I rode him for an 82.Not my best.But, I rode him and won an extra $2000 to boot.The song that was playing was 'Born to Ride'.So, I bought the CD.I love it.Now I play it before every rodeo to get me pumped up!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Rodeo Songs!
I'm a huge LeDoux fan.Out on the rodeo circuit, I kept hearing about another Chris.I thought they were talking about LeDoux.One night I bummed a ride to the next rodeo with a bronc rider and he had a bootleg tape playing.It sounded different.But, I thought it had to be LeDoux.The guy said it was Chris Sparks, not LeDoux.So, I looked it up on the Web and bought it.I love it.Now, I keep hearing bootleg copies.But, I got the real thing.I recommend you should too. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Makes understanding the horse's point of view easy
After reading several other books from trainers and horseman, I found Sam's book, wow! What a find. Sam has put into words what few other horseman can and in away that all will understand. Having worked with horses since he was a young man has given him wisdom to help both horse and man. His simple manner in which he uses in his book allows the reader to get the most from reading his book. I have learned more from his book than any other book, magazine or video I have reviewed. He has helped me to understand the horse form a perspective I never knew possible. This will be a book you will want to read over and over. This book has something for everyone that loves his or her horse. From the beginner to the advanced professional, you will learn a way of communicating that actually works. Communication that will open your eye to a new world for both horse and person, ENJOY!

5-0 out of 5 stars Sam Saved My Horse!
I had bought this book originally as a good all around read, but ended up needing a lot of its valuable information when I purchased a gelding at an auction.Something just made my hand go up, even though the horse reared in the ring.I thought I had brought home a mistake until I went back and started to re-read Mr. Powell's book.I even e-mailed him at his address for additional help.Needless to say, 18 months later, this horse is the friendliest, most willing-to-please horse in our pasture.The potential I saw him at the auction has come full circle thanks to the wisdom in Mr. Powell's book.Thanks Sam!This is a must read for all horse people!

5-0 out of 5 stars Almost A Whisper
I have always wanted horses since I was a small child, growing up with my Uncle's horses.There has always been a connectionbetween me and horses.I just purchased two of the most beautiful Arabian horses, later in life.My little boy has been abused and is 4 years old and is in training. When I purchased him, you couldn't get close to him and put a halter on him, and now he follows me arround and wants to be right next to me. My little girl is 2 and has always been loved and is really sweet.I spent two weeks bonding with my little boy and we have such love and communication between us that he is a different horse and really trust me.I bought this book and realize that as a novice, I did the wrong thing of buying 2 green horses. I felt something when I saw them and knew that we were ment to be together.I will tell you that I could not put this book down until I finished it.I realized all the things I was doing wrong....and all the things that I was doing right.I love my horses so much and they know it as soon as they see me.I would really like to meet Sam someday and learn more from him.I highly reccommend this book to everyone. I know that I should of bought older, and trained horses, but the love I have for my beautiful babies grows everyday.I know I need to learn....and I belive in Sam's way of training.I know I will be alot more wiser in what I do now....but I have patience and hope I will be a good partner and companion to the two best horses in the world. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Should be retitled "Pure Magic".
This movie should be retitled "Pure Magic". George Strait proves why he's a superstar by turning in a great first time acting job as the fictitional country music star Dusty Chandler. One night after Dusty stops singing for three bars during a concert he figures out that it's the "glitz" and not the "hits" that fans are coming to see. This rude awakening causes him to take immediate stock of himself when he begins to feel like a "dancing chicken" in a traveling road show. And so he abruptly sets out on a search to find his roots and to recapture the love and passion he once had for performing. One night by way of a drunken stuper in a cowboy bar he meets the georgeous Harley Tucker (in a scene stealing performance by Isabel Glasser) and tries to defend her honor but he can barely stand up. So after losing a fight she takes one look at that killer smile and says.....hmmmm.....I think I'll bring this one home with me tonight. When Dusty's manager Lula Rogers (another scene stealing performance played by Lesley Ann Warren) finaly catches up with Dusty and sees her "competition" she sabotages the budding relationship by lying to Harley. When Dusty finds out what Lula did he lays down the law and Lula repents and finds Harley and comes clean with her. Then at his Vegas show Dusty (George that is) procedes to sing to Harley one of the greatest country ballads of all time "I Cross My Heart" in a spine tingling performance that will make you want to jump up and watch the movie all over again! Don't listen to anybody else but me. This ones a keeper!

1-0 out of 5 stars The worst I ever seen
I wasted almost 30 argentine pesos in a movie that is one of the worst I've ever seen. To see Lesley Ann Warren wasted in a movie like this makes me want to cry my heart out.
Only the soundtrack is good, and please tell George Strait to stop acting, he sings very well, but his acting is not good at all.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nothing profound, but a good movie.
The only competent actor in this movie is the multi-talented Leslie Ann Warren, who doesn't get to do a whole lot.Even so, it's a fun feel-good movie in which George Strait doesn't even try to do anything but be himself.Filled with great songs performed by Strait, this movie sometimes resembles a long music video.It's definitely worth a look, especially for fans of George Strait. ...

Editorial Review

The title refers to the time required by all rodeo cowboys to stay on a bull if they want a judge's score. For them, such a short time can seem like an eternity. The same is true of the beginning of this true story, a country tale of Lane Frost, a real-life, crowd-pleasing bullrider who rose to rodeo fame in the late '80s. The characters seem so irrepressibly good, so unreal, that the film comes out of the chute without a buck or much of a purpose. But Frost's story, and that of his relationship with his wife, Kellie (Cynthia Geary), eventually gains momentum. Luke Perry is an underrated actor, and he balances an "aw-shucks-ness" with an internal spark that makes that salt-of-the-earth stuff not so salty. When the film is finally over and the end credits show home movies and stills of the real-life Frost, you'll wish the ride was just a little longer. --Keith Simanton ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The life of american legend Lane Frost...
This is a movie about Lane Frost, a skinny bullrider who worked his way to the top through hard work, only to be taken from us at his peak.Shows his life and relationship troubles with his wife and trying to live up to his fathers expectations.A great modern day American story!

Luke Perry stars in this biography of the late Lane Frost, a champion bull rider who in 1987 won a rodeo world championship at the tender age of 21. In Eight Seconds (the title refers to the minimum amount of time a rider must stay on a bull in competition), Lane Frost is a young man from Oklahoma who learns to ride, hoping to win the approval of his emotionally distant father. As Lane works his way up the rodeo circuit with his best friend Tuff Hedeman (Stephen Baldwin), he meets Kelly Kyle (Cynthia Geary), a pretty barrel-race rider with whom he falls in love.

Lane and Kelly marry, but Lane stubbornly refuses any help from Kelly's wealthy parents, forcing the young couple to live a hand-to-mouth existence, and while Lane's dedication to rodeo and its fans earns him a devoted following, it also keeps him away from Kelly and threatens to sink their relationship.

Lane's hard work pays off when he wins the 1987 world championship, but the danger of the sport catches up with him two years later, when he dies as a result of an accident during competition. Country star Vince Gill appears onscreen with his band; keep an eye peeled for a brief appearance by Renee Zellweger, two years before her breakthrough role in Jerry Maguire.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Movie
Great Movie, a pleausure to see Luke Perry and the rest of the cast. Only bad thing is that I had to use the subtitles in English because I couldn't understand what they were saying. (I am from Argentina)but the rest was very good acting and music.

5-0 out of 5 stars My Absolute Favorite
This movie is amazing. Luke Perry does a great job playing rodeo great, Lane Frost. The movie follows the true story of Lane Frost, and although parts of this movie were created by Hollywood (there was no Martin Hudson, Kellie wasn't there in the end, Cody didn't write poems, etc.) it is still a great movie.

Luke Perry plays Lane Frost, Luke does a great job portraying Lane. Lane's parents, Clyde and Elsie, attended throughout the filming of the movie. As did Lane's best friend, Tuff Hedeman. Tuff could sometimes be heard speaking to Luke and saying "Lane wouldn't do it that way", so Luke would stop what he was doing, and start all over, doing it until he got it right.

If you overlook the few "Hollywood" moments, this is a great movie. It is without a doubt my favorite movie, and I hope it will be yours too. It's a great movie for rodeo fans of all ages, and even if you're not a fan of rodeo, you will be a fan of Lane's by the time this movie is over! ... Read more

Editorial Review

Although it's best viewed on a big theatrical screen to take full advantage of Robert Richardson's breathtaking widescreen cinematography, it seems likely that most people will see this classy romance in the comfort of their own homes. Adapted from the bestseller by Nicholas Evans and directed by Robert Redford, the film did respectable business at the box-office, but it was too sprawling and too soapy to be a bona fide hit. Redford stars as the title character, a Montana rancher named Tom Booker, who possesses the specialized talent of healing traumatized horses through careful and affectionate rehabilitation. He gets his most challenging case when he's sought out by a fast-lane New York magazine editor (Kristin Scott Thomas, in a role modeled after former New Yorker editor Tina Brown) whose daughter (Scarlett Johansson) was injured and traumatized by an accident that nearly killed her favorite horse. When mother, daughter, and horse arrive at Booker's ranch, the big-city editor falls in love with the serene rancher and faces the painful decision of whether to stay in Montana or return to her husband (Sam Neill) in New York. Some may find this to be much ado about nothing, and comparisons toThe Bridges of Madison County are inevitable, but Redford's directorial approach offers the kind of graceful stature, tenderness, and intelligence required to elevate the simple story. The film takes all the time it needs to let its characters heal and make their important decisions, and that alone makes it a refreshing alternative to the frantic pace of most big-studio productions. --Jeff Shannon ...

5-0 out of 5 stars WORDS CAN'T DISCRIBE THE BEAUTY OF THIS FILM !!
This Is A Unique Movie, And It Touched Me On So Many Levels. The Movie Is About Longing For Connection and Healing. The Movie Captures What Has Been Lost In Our Society...A Yearning That Is In All Of Us To Find " A Soft Place To Fall". " The Horse Whisperer" Can Give Us Clues As To Why We May Need To Go Through The Most Difficult Time In Our Lives To Find Out What We Truly Want.

1-0 out of 5 stars Forget it
"The Horse Whisperer" is for garage sale addicts who get rained out some weekend. Much of the character development, sub-themes, plot sequence and even dialogue is thinly disguised rehash of Redford's earlier movie "The Electric Horseman". "TEH" was good, or at least Fun, because it was fresh. But repackaging a lot of it to make "The Horse Whisperer" turned it into refried beans. "Whisperer" is even worse because quite a bit of the main plot simply defies all credibility. The supposed epiphaney of the unconvincing "family' is so hokey and disingenious it should have somehow been filmed in crayon, not Technicolor. It did as well as it did at the box office for only four reasons. It had a large promotional budget, it had Redford's name attached, it had the word "horse" in the title, and there are plenty of garage sale addicts here. Get "City Slickers" instead. The theme is about the same, the characters are more interesting and it has some funny parts.

5-0 out of 5 stars This has got to be one of my favorite magazines
I love this magazine. I'm a teenage rider and I find (most of) the articles very informative and helpful. I really like Cindy Hale's Life With Horses colum and I always enjoy Breed Profiles. The one thing I don't appreciate is a woman named Marcia King writes articles in some of the issues that are too animal-rights activist for me. Definitely subscribe!

3-0 out of 5 stars NOT REALLY WORTH THE MONEY
Horse Illustrated is a nice, slick, colorful, and simplistic magazine appropriate for the young horse lover who isn't ready for a greater depth of information about the equine world.This is not the publication for anyone who is seriously interested in becoming informed about horse health, care, products, training, or breed information. For the more mature equestrian, it is not worth the money.A better choice is Horse Journal or Equus.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for horse owners and non-horse owners alike
This magazine is absolutely wonderful!I'm a thirten year old amateur rider, and I find these articles very interesting and informative without loading you down with complex terms.I don't use a lot of the articles yet, like training articles, but the information I gain is very valuable.Here's a layout:

Feature Articles:There are always seven to ten feature articles, which are long, informative articles on training, tips on looking for a barn, using good fencing, or maybe just a sport that it informs you about.

Columns

Equipage:This column, by Moira C. Harris, talks about observations of the equine world or advice she's acquired over the years.

Life with Horses:This is a humorous column by Cindy Hale that looks at the funny side of all things equine.

Back in Z Saddle:By Soraya O' Sullivan, this column shows the equine life of Soraya, going day by day.

Vet Files:The latest medical news

Western Roundup:News for the Western rider

English Arena:News for the English rider

This Month On:Stuff on www.horseillustrated.com

Departments

Mail Pouch:Readers write to Horse Illustrated

Horseman's World:The latest news

Illustrated Shopper, Ad Index, Breeder Directory, Classified Advertising, Gallery, Gallery Advertising:Stuff for you to look at

Breed Profile:Each month features a breed and its history, plus a tear-out poster.

Great magazine. I have been reading it for a few years now and have found it interesting and useful. The photos within are also excellent.

5-0 out of 5 stars Was there when it started.
The Western Horseman is THE horse magazine.It started in 1936.My mother wrote an article that was published in Volume 2, Number 4 in 1937.It was about the cowboys in New Mexico along the Pecos River.The ranch was the Turkey Track. I would like to have the issue, but over the years it disappeared.We, she and I raised horses for many years in Kansas and Oklahoma until a back injury slowed me down.
Over the years the magazine has kept up with the changing styles and breeds of western horses.More power to them!!
Keep me in mind if you have the issue I mentioned, and would like to sell it to me.

5-0 out of 5 stars The classic horseman's magazine!!
I can't remember when I started reading Western Horseman.My mother had a subscription back in the fifties, even though we had Arabians and half-Arabians.As the title suggests, Western Horseman is a magazine for western horsemen.Back in the fifties you wouldn't see an English saddle in the magazine.However, I read it cover-to-cover then and I read it that way now.Even during the time I couldn't own a horse, I read Western Horseman.Nowdays, they occasionally include a horse with an English or, more likely, an Australian or Endurance saddle among all those western stock seat saddles.But that is fine.Western Horseman is what it claims to be, the premier magazine for western horsemen even if they don't live in the west or ride stock seat.The magazine is full of information about western stock horse disciplines.Their articles are basic and practical.Their writers are people I have never met but whose names are as familiar to me as my next-door-neighbor.They write about horse people. I have learned about rodeo clowns, bullriders, cowboy poets and western artists as well as horses.They write about the western way of life and those people who try to preserve it even as it changes around them.So, if you buy Western Horseman, and I hope you do, don't expect to read only about horses, although you will find plenty about horses.Expect to read about western horsemen in all their variations.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best horse magazine
Western Horseman is the premier horse magazine, with articles on all aspects of horses and horsemanship from trailers and trailering to horse packing, shoeing, disease and parasite control as well as special focus pieces on the different breeds of horse. If you like the outdoors and horses, you will love this magazine. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A handsome, well-done magazine that I won't read again
This is a good-looking magazine that always arrives on time and that never skimps on content. But I'm letting my subscription--which I bought as a way to encounter a distinct culture other than my own--lapse because there's just too much politics here. That is, you CAN say negative, but honest, things about John Wayne and other conservative icons, but not if your ideology blinkers you.

Strongly recommended for conservative cowboys, then, not for other political points of view.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read for almost everyone.
This well-written magazine gives readers a realistic view of cowboys and cowgirls today, whether they are ranch owners, ranch hands, or rodeo athletes.The photography is first class.If you have any interest in cowboys and cowgirls, a western lifestyle, or just knowing how people live and react who enjoy this way of living, you will enjoy this magazine.

5-0 out of 5 stars The American Cowboy!!!!
I like this magazine on The American Cowboy & it must be good.

I like the picture on the cover of the cowboy on a horse and in the grass.

The National Finals Rodeo photos are beautifrul.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Ride
Wade Leslie is my cousin so I am bias.

While We were growing up he always wanted to be the best.

The Perfect Ride shows that he is.

Wade will always have that ride to remember and pass down thru our family.

Some of the family is still looking for copies so if you have a used one to sell please put it up on amazon. We will buy it.

This video shows how hard bull riding is and how truly amazing Wade's PERFECT ride really was. This also shows the dangers involved if you are not aware of the skill involved.

I recommend this for all Rodeo lovers. It will always be a great memory.

3-0 out of 5 stars THREW ME...
This video really threw me...I sat and watched it with my nine year old son who loves rodeo.We were swaying with the music and the twists of the bulls.

This video entertains you with some clips of youngsters riding steer, a bit of bull and rider history, and some real swinging rides. The narrating is done by a professional announcer and a stock breeder.They give you some extra insight on the bulls and the riders.

The main thing that threw me was that it all ended so soon.I was pumped up and strapped in for more...but when a good ride lasts for eight seconds it would take quite a few rides to make a full length feature film.

This is not a full length type film, but it is very informative and entertaining, you can witness the PERFECT RIDE... ... Read more

Editorial Review

John Travolta traded in disco duds for a cowboy hat in this corny love story about a working man who breaks up with his girlfriend (Debra Winger), then plays out their relationship's turmoil inside a huge honky-tonk called Gilley's. The story essentially parallels Travolta's prior hit film,Saturday Night Fever, in its blend of ordinary life, incomplete relationships, and personal pride channeled into niche stardom at a neighborhood club. But for all its regional flavor, Urban Cowboy never enjoys the immediacy and urgency of Fever, and after awhile you can't help but feel bemused by the macho silliness of ongoing "mechanical bull" competitions (basically a faux rodeo device only brave men can master at great chiropractic risk). The Travolta-Winger relationship is pure soap, as well. But this film really is a kind of time-capsule piece on a lot of levels--notably Travolta's career and late '70s Western kitsch--and while it's silly, it's certainly not disagreeable.--Tom Keogh ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Pure Guilty Pleasure
Although many folks laught this flick off, I have to admit that I am extremely fond of "Urban Cowboy."My wife and I watch it just about every time it comes on television.Granted, Bud slaps around Sissy and that may turn off some folks, but deep inside, there is more love between those characters than most of the couples in film and television these days.

With a giant honky-tonk as the primary setting, you get the expected rowdy crowds and rambunctious country music needed to set the stage.The entire story revolves around the trials and tribulations of a young couple brought together by the bull...mechanical bull that is, and how they're almost torn apart by it.They get "Bud" and "Sissy" license plates for Bud's truck.They are ecstatic over a new trailer house.They are pure white trash, and I love'em for it.Colorful characters such as Bud's aunt and uncle, Gator, the ex-con Wes, Jessie, Mickey Gilley and even the Charlie Daniel's Band make for a great movie.You couldn't make a film about a honky-tonk these days with characters like that.First of all, you'd anger someone for making the working man look like an idiot.Secondly, people will scream about spousal abuse.Lastly, there aren't many real country stars like they had back in those days.Can you imagine Tim McGraw onstage with back hair coming out of his vest instead of the incomparable Johnny Lee?I think not.

Others say the acting is bad, that may be, but it is so bad that it is wonderful to see on screen.Travolta's bathtub scene where he fusses at Sissy(Debra Winger) for not being home when he needs her is just hilarious.Winger is at her sexiest as the somewhat tomboyish Sissy.She's probably the main reason I watch this movie over and over.WhenBud's aunt enters the Dolly Parton lookalike contest, her entire character becomes the focus of the film for a few brief, funny moments.Barry Corbin was perfectly cast as Bud's well-meaning uncle.You couldn't have picked a better cast.

Also, the characters are real.Admit it, you've seen a drunk guy at the local bar fall off of his barstool.In this movie, Gator just happens to fall off of a mechanical bull.There are always one or two fights at the bar.Also, I've seen plenty of angry drunks at the local Pitt Grill(an after-honky-tonk hangout with a great breakfast buffett at 3AM) throw fits like Bud did when Sissy gets a hat tipped to her by Wes.

Watch this movie for the time trip it is.It's a perfect rainy-day, holdin' you're better half type of movie.Add it to your collection now.

5-0 out of 5 stars I was Marshallene Mitchell in Urban Cowboy
I played the role of Marshallene in "Urban Cowboy" and so to answer one of your reviewers, what was Sissy's last name? well here is the way it was. We didn't have last names; at least not assigned to us when we got our scripts. I actually made mine up when I needed one quickly in the Dolly Parton Look-a-like contest. You might recall that Marshallene was caught in the trailer with Wes, the convict. This film is such a "cult favorite" that it plays every day somewhere;my residuals attest to the fact that this film is loved by many. It made a fashion statement, (people went out and bought jeans and hats and boot and belts) it gave a boost to the Club business - where more and more C/W clubs sprang up all over the country and Canada. I had a motor coach bus and opened shows for Mickey Gilley and Johnny Lee and others for about 8 years - well into the late 80's. It was a magical time for all of us! It was a fun time for me and for fans. This movie is legendary and will last well beyond. Hope you enjoy viewing it as much as I enjoyed playing in it.By the way, there are a lot of versions of it. The edited for TV version actually is so different - (I have several more scenes in it) - and it shows Sissy and Bud actually"dating"before they got married. The scenes were shot on location on the grass of Buffalo Bayou in Houston, Texas. I actually like that version because the original had them meeting one night at Gilley's and getting married the next afternoon!!!Connie Hanson

4-0 out of 5 stars Yeeee Haaaawwww!!!
Folks, you can almost smell the trailer park as you watch this movie!

For some reason, I am drawn to this film--and I have no idea why.A post-Saturday Night Fever John Travolta plays Bud Davis, a self-proclaimed cowboy who temporarily relocates to the Houston suburbs to get a job and earn enough enough money to "...buy myself a piece of land."His uncle, played by the wonderful character actor, Barry Corbin, introduces Bud to the redneck version of nightlife--as epitomized by the huge C&W nightclub called Gilley's (3 1/2 acres in size!).While there, he meets the cute Sissy, played by Debra Winger, to whom he proposes on their first "date."Her ecstatic reaction to their new home (a trailer) is absolutely hilarious.You'd think they'd just bought a condo in Manhattan.

Things don't go well in the marriage and they quickly separate--with the gorgeous Madolyn Smith-Osborne taking a shine to the unsophisticated cowboy and Scott Glenn, as a bull-riding ex-convict, shacking up with Winger.Throw in a mechanical bull-riding contest with a grand prize of (gasp!) $5,000 and you pretty much have the whole story.

In the end, love triumphs to send Travolta and Winger galloping off into the sunset together.

Oh, as an aside, I would mention that Gilley's, a real-life nightlife cowboy hot spot, burned to the ground under mysterious circumstances a few years after it was featured in the movie.Insurance fraud by arson was suspected, but I don't know if Mickey Gilley ever wound up behind bars as a result. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, But Still Lacking
There are great songs on this album, with my favorites being from the Austin years and "Blue Sky..." . But I wholeheartedly agree that this cannot be an "ultimate" collection without "South Canadian River Song" or "Alleys of Austin", both great songs which defined the early years for this performer. It's certainly worth having, but you'll still need a vinyl copy of the original Cosmic Cowboy album.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is one of the best MMM possible...but it could be even
The songs that were chosen for this album were fantastic. Each one - especially the old ones - could be played today to show songwriters how to really write songs. And MMM's voice and abilities means he can do all styles and do them well. Any fan of MMM - early or late - will love this album.

But I do agree with the reviewer on this page who said 'how could this be the ultimate collection?'. There are too many great MMM songs NOT on this album...like 'South Canadian River Song' or my all-time favorite 'Tonight We Ride' (best song I've EVER heard - words and music sizzle) or a gospelly song like 'Lights of the City'.

So this album needs to be 2 disks in order to really be the ultimate...butit is the closetest thing to it that you can find!

2-0 out of 5 stars Ultimate?
How can this be the "Ultimate Collection" of Michael Murphey without "South Canadian River Song"?Or "Alleys of Austin" and "Blessing in Disguise"?Thank goodness "Geronimo's Cadillac" and "Boy from the Country" made it on the album.Why isn't "Cosmic Cowboy Souvenir" available?It's a great album that deserves to be available for those who have not had the pleasure of hearing heartfelt music from one of Austin's best. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The best horse book!
I am very new in horses. Living in a small city my whole life, I never had the opportunity to own a horse, or even be around them much. But I have always loved them, and know that someday I will have one when I live in an appropriate area. So I want to take my time from now until then to do as much research as I can on horses so I am prepared.
Going to book stores, I do not have much luck finding books that are informative. Most of them focus on one small category of horse ownership or history, os just focus on photos.
So I came online and looked through all the horse books on Amazon and read reviews. This book got great reviews and multiple times refered to as the best horse book that exists. So I figured I'd take a chance and order it!
I was not disappointed! This book covers EVERYTHING! It has a 2 page spread dedicated to each breed and includes their history, size comparison to humans, temperament, etc. with beautiful photos of each breed.
It also has so much general information on horses including evolution, veterinary care, grooming, showing, etc.
If you are looking for one big horse book that covers all topics and breeds, I very highly recommend you go with this one!

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Well Done
This is a fabulous work.The book is large every page is like 2 pages of a regular size book.Great photos on all of the major breeds.The history section in the front is very informative.I read it cover to cover over time and this is the book I refer to when I want to show a breed to a friend.

5-0 out of 5 stars Every horse lover should own this book!
This is a very beautiful book with lovely photos of horses. You can learn soo much from this book and about all different types of horses. This book also tells about horse sports and how they started to give you more of an understanding. Great for horse lovers. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent and Informative for all Equestrians
I have been riding for over 15 years and I consider myself more or less knowledgable when it comes to our sport (I am a hunter/jumper rider and competitor); but this magazine constantly reminds me of how much more I have to learn.It is truly an excellent resource for any equestrian!Every issue is filled with interesting, well written articles.There are so many how-to articles, riding explanations, and interviews with/articles about many of the sport's top riders that provide the reader with a wealth of knowledge, ideas and techniques.

I have had a subscription for over four years, and every month I still find myself anxiously awaiting the arrival of the newest issue.I have had subscriptions to other horse magazines in the past and I can certify that, for the majority of english riders and competitors, this magazine far outdoes the others.I am not going to list the others as I still feel they are good sources and I don't want to put them down, but I do have to say that in my opinion this magazine is without a doubt the best english-riding equestrian magazine available.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource for the English Rider
This is a great magazine for the hunter/jumper rider.It contains alot of great training tips for the show circuit.

5-0 out of 5 stars Top-notch magazine for English riders at all levels!
Of all the horse magazines I've read and subscribed to over the years, "Practical Horseman" is by far the best for English riders (particularly those involved with dressage, show jumping, hunter jumping, and cross-country jumping). They publish consistently high-quality "how to" articles on a variety of riding and training topics, with information for both advanced and beginning riders. These articles are usually accompanied by clear, step-by-step photographs, which are very helpful. In addition, there are articles on horse care, stable management, tack upkeep, rider fitness, current news from the show world, and more. Keep in mind, though, that everything is geared entirely toward English riders, so if you participate in Western disciplines you'll want to look elsewhere.

Another upside of the magazine is its great photography. While not as artistic in nature as "Horse Illustrated" (a beautiful magazine picture-wise, but much more elementary in article content than "Practical Horseman"), there are plenty of really great shots of top horses and riders in training and competition. These serve as good reference photos for the artistically inclined.

My one gripe is the overwhelming quantity of ads. Of course more and more magazines are including more and more advertisements as time goes on, but for some reason it particularly stands out for me with "Pratical Horseman." It often seems like the magazine is 2/3 advertising and 1/3 actual content. However, I won't knock any points off my rating, as this doesn't reflect on the quality of the articles themselves, which are excellent. If you're an English rider, no matter what your level of training and skill, this is an invaluable source of information. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Bull Riders: Chasing the Dream is an entertaining and offbeat documentary about men whose athletic expertise consists of climbing onto the backs of enormous bulls who strenuously object to having anyone riding on them. The history of the wild and wooly sport of bull riding is briefly discussed, and the narrator visits a bull-riding school in Texas to learn the finer points of hanging on for dear life. Notables in the sport are interviewed, and the real danger is illustrated in an interview segment with the mother of a young bull rider who was killed while competing. The documentary contains some spectacular footage of bull-riding competitions, including a bloody incident in which a champion rider, the aptly named Tuff Hedeman, sustained a number of broken bones in his face but still managed to walk out of the arena. Vintage black-and-white footage shows legendary bull riders of the past, one of whom refers to how punishing the sport is by noting, "If I had to do it all over, I'd learn to play golf." There are interviews with fans who pack arenas to see their heroes in action, and the film even has a segment showcasing a legendary bull named Bodacious, a huge beast whose career of hurling cowboys off his back concluded with a gala retirement celebration and a trip to the stud farm. This is a suitably lively look at what's billed as "the most dangerous sport in America." -- Robert J. McNamara ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars One of life's many mysteries -- solved!
Even though I was born and raised in Texas and have spent plenty of time on ranches, I've never really understood why someone would want to mount a ton of angry beef and try to hold on for eight seconds. Then a friend recommended this documentary as an answer to that question - and he was right. I get it now. This video is more than just stock footage of throws and cowboys in trouble - it goes beyond the spectacle to the human heart of the sport. Don't get me wrong, it's full of dust-kicking/hair-raising/bone-cracking action, but it never loses sight of the question: why? The answer is funny and sad, noble and arrogant, heroic and humble, all at once, and the metaphor of clinging for dear life in times of raging uncertainty has never been clearer. See this video, learn the answer, and be inspired.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hold on to your boot straps!
Attach a seat belt to that recliner and get ready for a wild and furious ride.Chasing the Dream is a complete film that gives you all the power and punch you might expect from riding a 2,000 pound animal, combined with history, and the more personal side of the cowboy's crazy enough to call this their sport.I spent half the film clenching the arm rest, half the film laughing and a moment or two wiping a tear from my eye.Watch this film!

5-0 out of 5 stars Bull Riding at its best!
Definitely a MUST SEE -- whether you've been to 1,000 rodeos or not a single one, you will enjoy this up-close look at one of the toughest, wildest physical sporting events around -- bull riding.When some of the nation's top riders are asked simply just why they do what they do (specifically why they repeatedly strap themselves to 2,000 pounds of pure strenth?), the responses and film editing produce one of the most hysterical sequences I've seen in a long time!You'll laugh, you'll learn, you'll cringe.No doubt about it. With the amazing footage offered in this unique production, you not only have a front-row seat to bull-riding competitions, but you have an uncensored look at the life of and mentality of the unbelievable athletes we call Professional Bull Riders. You've got to see it to believe it. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Somebody in Hollywood thought there was some fish-out-of-water potential in this teaming of wild man Woody Harrelson and slow-burning Kiefer Sutherland as a pair of New Mexico cowboys who go to New York to tame the wild, wild, uh ... East. Well, they were mistaken, because this 1994 action-comedy is little more than a tiresome reworking of Crocodile Dundee. Woody and Kiefer head for the Big Apple to rescue the illegal-immigrant daughter of one of their rodeo buddies (who has mysteriously disappeared), and what they discover is a sweatshop operation run by a hot-tempered thug (Dylan McDermott, before his role on TV's The Practice). That's when the boys start using their ropin' and shootin' skills to foil the bad guys. One measure of this film's credibility is the inevitable scene of the boys riding on horseback through the gridlocked streets of Manhattan. Uh huh.You know how it goes... you just have to go with it or marvel at the sheer stupidity of it all. Of course, forget all the sniping if you're a fan of Harrelson or Sutherland--they're both doing their best under the burden of disadvantage. --Jeff Shannon ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Can I give it 6 Stars?
The film brings to the screen the story of two cowboys out of New Mexico who come to NY looking for their friend who's gone missing while searching for his daughter.
It is a highly entertaining, action-packed adventure with significant elements of comedy.To a certain extent it brings to mind Next of Kin starring Patrick Swayze.
Woody Harrelson, Kiefer Sutherland, and the rest of the cast have truly outdone themselves with their performances, which are exceptional to say the least.All the actors, without exceptions, give it their 100% and it really shows (the chemistry is AMAZING)!
The plot, the setting, the dialogues, and the music, are all WONDERFUL!
The Cowboy Way is a movie definitely worth watching, and one to seriously consider adding to your movie collection!

4-0 out of 5 stars A classic theme reworked
It's rather more violent than "Crocodile Dundee" or Tom Selleck's early effort "Concrete Cowboys," but "The Cowboy Way" reminds me of both.Once again, the chief thrust is incongruity--the country boys in the Big City, coping with its traps and perils in their own distinct style.And while I'm not a fan of either Harrelson (who plays the womanizing Pepper Lewis) or Sutherland (his steadier, more focused lifetime buddy Sonny Gilstrap), I enjoyed the way they brought their characters to life.What's more, there's an element of inter-hero conflict in the bitter estrangement that has stood between them ever since Pepper failed to show up for a regional event and they had to forfeit their chance at the prize money that would have been "a down payment on [Sonny's] ranch."Besides a very nasty villain and a more avuncular, almost sympathetic one (who is ultimately shot by his young protege), the peripheral characters include the black mounted cop Sam, who plays a major part in the resolution of the case.The scriptwriters reveal the depths of the two protagonists gradually and skilfully, culminating in Pepper's unexpectedly creative means of ransoming the treasured New Mexico State Champion buckle Sonny has pawned to arm them.This is ultimately a story about friendship, loyalty, forgiveness, and courage, and as such it appeals on a very basic level.It may never be called a "classic," but it's definitely worth a look.

4-0 out of 5 stars EAST MEETS WEST WITH EXPLOSIVE RESULTS!
When two New Mexico cowboys head for New York in search of a missing friend, East meets West with explosive results.Kiefer Sutherland and Woody Harrelson star as two estranged team ropers who determine to teach a group of small-time gangsters that THE COWBOY WAY will win out every time. Dylan McDermot of THE PRACTICE plays the ruthless gangster who has all the answers the cowboys are looking for. The confrontation between Sutherland, Harrelson and McDermot is classic.

No, it's not LONESOME DOVE.But THE COWBOY WAY is a dramedy that will keep you coming back.Kiefer Sutherland, who is a roper on the side in real life, is especially convincing. ... Read more
