It’s no secret that I’m a reality TV junkie. Cancelling my cable subscription years ago did not curb my love of trashy TV. Instead, I just watch trashy reality TV for much cheaper than I used to. It works for me.
So imagine my surprise and delight when I saw “Dance Moms” appear on my Netflix queue. It’s completely over the top ridiculous. Mix over involved mothers with too much money, wannabe diva children, and a fairly verbally abusive dance coach… and you have grade A reality TV! If you’re not familiar, here’s a pretty typical clip:
Now, I didn’t show horses when I was a kid. I grew up fox hunting and didn’t really show much until my late high school years but mostly college. I’ve only ridden one pony in my entire life. Braided pigtails has never been a part of my equestrian career.
However, I know not everyone is this way. Pony divas and horse show moms are everywhere… just ask Ainsley Carter.
Which brings me to my question today – I want to hear about the worst “Pony Mom” moment you’ve witnessed. Surely there has to be this same kind of drama in the horse show world too?
If you care to share, spill it! I’ll be sitting here waiting to see what shows up in the comments 🙂 I can’t be the only one who loves a good reality TV scene.
