A horse story from my past:
Eve Plumb aka Jan Brady used to have a tiny black
pony named Ace. She was a bad rider, and, this being
the early 80's pre BB craze, very bitter about her
former acting career. She did occasional tv movies
and Love Boats. Her husband was a stunt man and very
nice, although they both seemed to do a lot of drugs.
She was very rude, and hated having to have her lessons
with me, the most junior trainer at the barn who took
care of the beginners and rode all the bad, evil horses.

tv show in the world which was cancelled by abc and can
be found on mtv now. There are only 19 sublime episodes,

"I call her Red" one with Angela and Jordan's kiss in the
