Like Make It or Break It, but with horses.
Welcome to Horseland, the upscale stables that trains up and coming champion jockeys, getting them prepped to one day earn a gold medal in horse-jumping or something. Horseland is populated by snotty girls with names like Chloe and Zoey, who complain a lot and backbite when they're not riding horses. All the girls are really skinny, too; like they only eat oats out of a feedbag. Also, the horses talk.
So, yeah, crazy times at Horseland, a show I have never heard of before. Maybe it's a big hit somewhere, but I could care less. And that's even if I picture myself as a young girl who loves horses and anorexia.
There are ten episodes in this set, dealing with a variety of hard-hitting issues that face all pre-adolescents, like "talking on your phone so much you forget to take care of the horses," "combating the sleazy land developers who want to bulldoze the stables," and "heeding the advice of the crotchety old stud horse."
"A New Development"
"New Pup in Town"
"A Horse Named River"
"The Last Drop"
"No News is Good News"
The show is given a standard-issue full-frame transfer with a 2.0 stereo mix and bonus episode of Mona the Vampire.
A glue factory joke would be too harsh, huh?
