I love reality television. It’s my guilty pleasure, and there are almost no limits to my reality TV love.
Cooking shows? Yes please. I never get tired of listening to Gordon Ramsey yell at people.
Hoarders? Can you think of a better program to motivate you to clean your house? If I watch more than 15 minutes of Hoarders, I inevitably start straightening and dusting.
And yes, it even goes all the way down to Toddlers and Tiaras. That show is the #1 reason I cancelled my cable. I realized that I was paying over $100 per month and almost exclusively watching TLC, where the subject was either health abnormalities or children with a lot of psychological damage heading their way.
Now I satisfy my urge with the Netflix and Hulu selections, but after watching half a season of Top Chef in almost one sitting… I began to wonder about equestrian reality TV. What would that look like?
At first, I was all “who’s the obvious choice to yell at people on competition shows?”
Then I was all, “No. I can’t just keep cranking out poorly done George Morris memes,” although I do think he’d be like Gordon Ramsey and somehow make it into like 5 different reality shows.
Sure, it’s not cooking related but we certainly know a lot of “delicacies” that get chopped in the horse world.
This show is essentially replaced by Youtube though. You can only get so far into watching horse videos before you end up with a “best crashes and falls” video.
I’m sure we can all relate to this one.
And finally, to satisfy my Toddlers ‘n Tiaras fix there’s always our version…
What do you think your favorite “Equestrian Reality Show” would be?
