UnStable

http://www.cmt.ca/UnStable/Episodes.aspx?id=267

There is a new show on CMT called UnStable. I've watched all the episodes on that link (^) and I'm a little stunned. Based on that show, I wouldn't board there even if it was free. Injured and/or sick horses every episode? Skinny broodmares? Nuh-uh. Oh, and most of the injuries are due to the fences they forgot to check over before throwing horses out in.
Beyond the cruddy horse care, the cattiness shown ... yipes.
Scares me a little.

me too! I was all excited to see a new horse show other then heartland, so I watched it and I almost threw up, seriously? First of all, they make a HUGE deal out of nothing, then there ALWAYS has to be a problem, and theyre just drama queens. That gives a terrible name to riders (for anyone who watches it and thinks that what were all like) and the poor boarders!!! No wonder their business isnt doing so well!! I steer clear of anybody liek that in the horse business.

Glad im not the only one that thought that! :)

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

Must be on Canadian TV? I've not seen it. I watched a bit of the online video but couldn't watch much. I hate reality TV I get enough reality every day, don't need to watch it on TV

Lol....sadly I watched it too. And although it is as they say "reality" TV...I honestly think it is scripted...as there is no way any riders would talk like that to each other at a horse show...even if they did hate each other.
Not to mention the whole boyfriend thing where he came in while she was lunging a horse...ok whatever...so set up and fake IMO.

Yeah giving horse people a bad name, I don't think the show will last long.
I hope not at least

Horses are like chips...you can never just have one

Hahaha, I watched this show and just laughed. I actually wanted to cry but all I could do was laugh. XD The "trainer" there sounds so rude...I wouldn't want to train with her....everything in that show just seems so fake. But I like to watch it cause one of thier stallions is gorgeous. :]

Oh, and the "new" stablehand, Jenna, is friends with my trainer. They went to the same horsey college and such. Haha, small world! :]
