Okay, I just have to vent for a minute…. hey, it’s MY blog, and I can vent if I want to!
I’m used to people copying my ideas. It happens all the time. So many people are copying my halter invention, it’s not even funny. There’s not a whole lot I can do about it; I’m not really the litigious type. But this latest “coincidence” has got me peeved!
As some of you are aware, I have been working on my “Flip That Horse!” video series for about a year. You can find lots of information about it here on my website, and you can see all the videos both here, and on YouTube. Basically, the idea is: I rescue a horse in need of rescuing, put it in the round pen, re-train it, spruce it up, and try to find it a good home.
About three months ago, I contacted the head of programming at RFD to pitch my idea. Never heard back from them.
Meanwhile, there is a certain well-known clinician who shall remain nameless (CA, you know who you are!) who has a show on RFD which shows him as he tours the country giving clinics to help people with their horses and demonstrating his training techniques.
Today, I tuned into to RFD and saw his “new” show. He basically said: “Welcome to my new series in which I take a rescue horse, put it in the round pen, re-train it, spruce it up, and try to find it a good home.” Sound familiar?
