We have had the pleasure of working with Mike Branch and his Flying B Horsemanship program for the past few years. Mike Branch has traveled extensively with the Bureau of Land Management where he selects wild mustangs from the herds brought in for adoption and demonstrates the gentling process. Many times Mike has had wild mustangs saddled and is on their backs in only one or two hours. Some of Mike's accomplishments include:
*Nominated for Bureau of Land Management’s "Volunteer of the Year" in 2008 and 2009
*Represented the Bureau of Land Management with two wild mustangs at the "Great Southern Stampede" in Hattiesburg, MS.
*Established the "Wild Mustang School" in Tennessee where students learn to gentle a wild mustang and assist in colt starting.
*Certified Trainer for Mustang Heritage Foundation
*Founding Member of the American Association of Natural Horsemen
*Runner up in "Round Up" in Brandon, MB with Mel Hyland and Bruce Logan
*Representative for the "Friends of the Dartmoor Hill Pony" at Devon County Show in Exeter, England.
*Received formal introduction to members of the Royal Family in England.
Here at R. W. Bowman Saddle Co., LLC we have produced a fine series of saddles designed to meet Mike's specifications. You will be impressed with these working saddles. They are made with time honored methods to produce a lasting masterpiece and will last a lifetime with reasonable care.
