The World According to Ponies

Love them or detest them, chances are a pony has contributed to your love of horses. Many of us had our first ride aboard a pony (I know I did) and experienced our first injury due to a naughty pony (me again).

While we might have ambivalent feelings toward the little beasties, there’s no doubt that ponies love being ponies. And why shouldn’t they? Ponies have conquered plenty of humans either through outright intimidation or by utilizing the charm inherent in a sweet face and petite constitution. This concept intrigued me, so I spent hours interviewing countless ponies so I could understand how they view the world. And thus I present this list of comments, straight from the mouths of ponies:

See? There are indeed plenty of reasons why it’s good to be a pony!

  1. I read a quote somewhere that said “if ponies were people they’d all be in prison”. Every time I see one of the cute little cusses I think of that!

  2. Throughout my life I usually tend to go more so to the 16 HH horses, but I have had some wonder pokes! For example: Cocoa (gelding), Koda (gelding) and Paris (mare)!

  3. YUP, I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS ABOUT PONIES, BUT I’M COMING FULL CIRCLE IN MY LIFE WITH HORSES. I STARTED OUT WITH PONIES AND I’M STARTING TO GROW FOND OF THEM AGAIN… IN A PECULIAR WAY.
    MAYBE IN A FEW YEARS I’LL HAVE A SMALL COLLECTION OF THEM IN MY BACKYARD!

  4. I would be proud to be called a pony! I can relate to their disposition so well! My pony was Jitterbug and this so fit her. You did forget one, though. When she had enough of anything (or any place) she would lie down! That was nearly 75 years ago and it seems like last week. Thank you for sharing this.
