 About Smokie
Smokie Brannaman grew up on a five thousand acre horse and cattle ranch in southwestern Montana.  As a youngster, working with horses, cattle, and rodeoing as a professional trick roper was his way of life.  After graduating from high school, Smokie chose to serve his country in the United State Coast Guard.  Although his military duties did not always allow much time to spend with his horses, he never the less rode and trained horses of his own and others during that time. 
Smokie retired in 2000 from the Coast Guard and worked as a Corporate Operations Manager for a security company. But he soon realized that his true enjoyment came from being around horses, training, riding, and helping others with their horses. 
After working for two years as a stable manager for a large boarding stable, Smokie hired on at Ots Sunrise Farm to work with the young horses halter breaking, ground work and starting horses under saddle to progress to more advanced training. Smokie utilizes the training methods of his brother Buck Brannaman, Jeff Griffith, Clinton Anderson, and others, as well as his own techniques learned during a lifetime of working with horses. 
Smokie lives in Greenleaf Wisconsin with his sweety and wife Vickie and has three grown children Kat, Travis, and Jason. He raises and trains registered quarterhorses of his own.  He uses those horses as cavalry horses for his hobby of Civil War reenacting and Wild West shows throughout the Midwest.
About Vickie
Vickie Brannaman is the better half our operation here at Horseman's Services!  She has been the videographer and editor for nearly all the videos (except a couple of early ones) we produce here for coming up on a decade.  You can tell which ones she's been responsible for because the quality is very high.  She is the one you should thank for the videos we put up for everyone to gain a bit more knowledge!  And she does a pretty good job of keeping Smokie from stirring the pot of the horse world more than he already does!
