One of the highlights of this year's Sundance Film Festival was Cindy Meehl's "Buck," a documentary about real life horse whisperer Buck Brannaman whose equine experience has made him practically a legend. The film took home the Sundance Festival Audience Award, and when we caught up with it at SXSW, it definitely won us over. With the film now set to hit theaters this Friday, June 17th we're happy to give one lucky reader the chance to win a poster signed by Buck Brannaman himself as well as a copy of "Faraway Horses," his official biography.

One of the highlights of this year's Sundance Film Festival was Cindy Meehl's "Buck," a documentary about real life horse whisperer Buck Brannaman whose equine experience has made him practically a legend. The film took home the Sundance Festival Audience Award, and when we caught up with it at SXSW, it definitely won us over. With the film now set to hit theaters this Friday, June 17th we're happy to give one lucky reader the chance to win a poster signed by Buck Brannaman himself as well as a copy of "Faraway Horses," his official biography.

"Your horse is a mirror to your soul, and sometimes you may not like what you see. Sometimes, you will." So says Buck Brannaman, a true American cowboy and sage on horseback who travels the country for nine grueling months a year helping horses with people problems.

"Buck," follows Brannaman from his abusive childhood to his phenomenally successful approach to horses. A real-life "horse-whisperer", he eschews the violence of his upbringing and teaches people to communicate with their horses through leadership and sensitivity, not punishment. Buck possesses near magical abilities as he dramatically transforms horses - and people - with his understanding, compassion and respect. In this film, the animal-human relationship becomes a metaphor for facing the daily challenges of life. A truly American story about an unsung hero, "Buck" is about an ordinary man who has made an extraordinary life despite tremendous odds.

For a chance to win, email us the name of the film that Buck Brannaman served as a technical advisor on. Please include your full name and mailing address. Good luck!

Update: Contest is closed, the winner will be contacted by email. Thanks!

Contest is open to U.S. residents only.
