What's even more disturbing is that there are still people on his FB page who apparently "support" him.
He also seems to think that the increase in "likes" on his page indicates that he is gaining more support... when really I am pretty sure that most people who are "liking" his page are doing so because it is a fun train wreck to watch.
It really may be the most epic thread ever, purely for the fact that the guy SERIOUSLY seems to think he can convince us all he knows what the hell he is doing....
We couldn't all be cowboys, so some of us are clowns.
I'm still offering the $50 for a video of a Cother at one of his clinics, even though the NJ clinic apparently has been canceled. And once more, thanks mods, for reopening that thread. Someone told me about it after it was locked the first time. Then voila, it reappeared.
Thanks for telling us about the thread and posting the link to the video. I love a good COTH trainwreck! Is it worth reading through all 56 pages? I made it through the hundreds of pages of PintoPiaffe dramz but it took a while.
Hellloooo, I didn't say how big the glass was! And for the record, if it gets refilled before getting all the way empty it counts as 'a' glass.
I believe it has been officially poofed. *sniff* I miss it already . . .
Re: the never OFFICIALLY empty (so it doesn't "count" as another) wine glass...HeeHee!
I was alerted to this EPIC trainwreck by a friend/student (damn her), and 3+ hours of my life later!! Gah! My poor DH, I ignored him all afternoon while I sat on the couch, glued to this thread, cackling and guffawing with shocked glee (and horror) as I scrolled, and scrolled, and scrolled (and clicked on the links, more entertainment value, and QUELLE HORROR!) and only occasionally sharing the "rare tidbit" with him.
He did chime in with "this guy sounds like he's the end of the horse that you don't put the bridle on"...
Great God Almighty. One for the record books, and COTH favorites!
What struck me as peculiar was that in the clips where you heard him talking, he sounded like he was born and bred in the USA, yet his posts (and writing) made him sound like he was NOT native to this country (grammar, syntax, etc.) Did he think this would be "part of his mystique"?
Is he attempting to "sound" European, when in reality he is just a [guy] from PA who writes bad checks (as does his  wife) and masquerades as an "elite DRESS-ahge trainer" who teaches the "art of the masters"??
Gott in Himmel.

Oh yes it is. I don't often say that and have skipped through a few, but this one is worth it. You don't want to miss not only the houseguest exploding, but also the discovery of check fraud and a whole host of other delights.
Oh yeah, I spent last night reading this trainwreck and it was SO worth it! Especially the saddle-numping video! The video of the Friesian cross with the chains/not-chains was still pretty crappy riding, but not nearly as craptastic as the "piaffe"-in-mah-pants/saddle-numping video--that one was CLASSIC!!!
YES! I am a little sad though because I was explaining to DH what all the giggling was about and wanted to show him the video, but the link doesn't work - says the video is private. Oh well, it was too good to last...poor Katie must have gotten severd.
The FB page is still a bit entertaining if you can catch comments before he deletes them. I'm thinking his new website will be filled with photos and videos of him riding horses at the clinic in Iowa.
