    Default Classic Threads to Read?

    I just finished the Crayola Trainer, Nick Peronace, Child in Pasture, and Arab Jumper. Phew! (I obviously need to be at the barn more). Now that I am temporarily out of reading material, does anyone have suggestions? There must be more interesting trainwrecks than just a few.

    Thanks!

    For sheer flouncy butthurt, "Lunging at Devon" is hard to beat.

    Arab jumper is still in the H/J forum, so here's the link.

    Thanks, ponypenny, I've been looking through those.

    California - holy mackerels. That is one amusing thread so far.

    I spent the last couple of days getting everything done in preparation for a new foster dog who didn't end up coming today, so I have nothing to do. I'm 20 pages into the Arabian Jumper thread. Oh my.

    This is how I found some of the very best older trainwreck threads:
    http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/sh...wrecks-on-COTH

    The "Lunging at Devon" poster has a blog -it's everything that you would expect.

    The one that sticks with me the most for sheer WTF-ery is the "Mexican pooping" thread. I still can't decide if the OP in that thread was (allegedly) psychotic and/or severely Narcissistic, AND racist -or just racist.

    The Alizia Granger thread was horrific and so very tragic, but at least it had a multiplicity of houseguests combined with an (alleged) transvestite "escort" who was also a well-known horse show photographer.

    Here is the link to the supporting documents in the "Apology" trainwreck thead. http://www.thesmokinggun.com/documen...nt-color-caper

    This one finished opening my eyes to the "P" group:

    http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/sh...inda%20Parelli

    Over many years, I had been to some "P" demonstrations, clinics and found some good, some that could be improved on and thought they over time would see that and make necessary changes.

    Kind of lost track for a while and then, this, that with all else that surfaced of where they were going now, was so much even more out there to objectionable than when they started.

    Many interesting discussions happened there, for anyone considering where they want to go with their horses and more important, why and to what extent to follow someone else's training philosophy, even when it is questionable to them.
    Sure read some surprising answers there.

    The horse world, two people, many answers applies there.

    Here you go:

    This thread is where the term "houseguests" comes from. Enjoy your trip down the rabbit hole.
