Silly show about horses

Why is it that there are so many TV shows with horses that are just, not good? Netflix is forever making suggestions of show to watch. One was called "The Saddle Club" it is about a bunch of kids at a stable and their adventures. It takes place in Australia. The idea of the show could be so cute but... BAD ACTING At one point you can literally hear the producer (or someone else) telling the girl what to say and what to do next. Seriously? Have they heard of editing? Ha ha

I think the problem with allTVv is that if you know something, then seeing a show where facts are so far off, it is hard to watch. I have the same problem withTVv shows about hospitals.

Any shows with horses that ARE good? What are your favorite horse movies?

The Saddle Club's been around for years. LOL I watched the older one and I guess a new version was released a few years ago.

I watched the Saddle Club as a kid. Couldn't stand the newer episodes.

The movie Second Chances was just awful. My friend and I watched that last year and had a good time laughing about it for months after

I don't know what it is. I watched Saddle Club when I was younger, and even then I could point out problems. Wildfire is another one that KILLS me to watch. The pilot episode makes NO sense. Who on earth takes a two year old thoroughbred STALLION fresh off the track and tries to use it as a police horse?! Inaccuracies aside, the writing for the show is awful too. The characters change personalities to fit the episode, and they often disregard the fact that these kids are supposed to be in high school.

Maybe the older one was better? The sad thing is, it could be a great show. I wish kids shows would be more educational and less silly. I know there are young actors that can remember lines and don't need to have them shouted out to them.

The worst thing is I was thinking how I wish there was more of that type of programming in the US.

Oh goodness, don't even get me started on Wildfire. Ha ha Not only is he an ex race horse that goes to be trained as a police horse, then runs wild running from the cops and then becomes a champion race horse again. Ha ha Yeah, well, the fun part is the dream but at least they could make it a bit more realistic.

One of the things I hate most in shows is when people change personalities or do something out of character for their personality and even worse when they then switch right back to fit a different episode.

Wildfire is an ABC family series, what did you expect? Doesn't mean I didn't watch every episode though, lol. I found it frustrating that Wildfire was often a QH, lol.

There aren't many I've heard of. Luck revolved around jockeys and horses, but they graphically killed of a horse in the pilot episode, lost tons of viewers, and got cancelled because they killed two horses in just the first season or two of filming. Also, it was BORING. I've never seen the Saddle Club, so I can't comment on that, but I don't really know of any realistic AND good ones out there.

Ugh...I hate Saddle Club (hated the books too, btw, but that's another thing). The acting is awful, the whole thing completely inaccurate.

There are a number of horse movies I like but I've listed them in the horse movie thread/s. Horse TV shows...hmmm...I've seen a few but they've all been pretty dreadful and I can't remember what most of them were called. Can't think of a good one!
