Probably 8 or so years ago there was an eventer on a season of a Bravo reality show about teen athletes and the lengths to which their parents go to support them. Sports Kids or something like that. Hyperdramatic if I remember correctly.
"Why would anybody come here if they had a pony? Who leaves a country packed with ponies to come to a non-pony country? It doesn't make sense!"
Sinead Halpin, Clarke Montgomery, and I believe Rebecca Howard were the working students on the Team O'Connor series. It was terrific I wish I could remember who produced it.
Really! All I really remember is on one of the episodes, someone lawn darted on a xc course and it looked SO painful! I did some searching on youtube and didn't come up with anything That came on about the same time as the reality series Robert Dover did.
