Remembering George Buckingham, one of the dozens of individuals who have died homeless in Seattle up until now this year – Seattle Times
Horses ran in George Buckingham’s blood. It was the only description.
Buckingham’s mother, Joyce, was a horsewoman herself. Raised in Seattle, she trained horses with her first partner, a former rodeo clown called Donald Woods, and had 3 kids prior to Woods died. Joyce then wed George’s father, a member of the Royal Canadian Navy also named George Buckingham.
The kids as soon as lived like cowboys, maturing around racehorses, broncos and show horses, according to Buckingham’s sibling. But after Woods passed away– before George was old sufficient to ride– the family had stopped going to rodeo programs and working with horses. George didn’t grow up with them the exact same method his brother or sisters did.

Nonetheless, Buckingham ended up operating at a Washington ranch, and at age 21, discovered an ad asking for help at a horse farm in Kentucky. It used something new, something far. So Buckingham answered the ad, received a bus ticket from Seattle to Kentucky, and off he went.
