Circus ponies are the best! Circus ponies are the best!

Happy Thursday, EN! I’m not sure about you, but I’ve been a day ahead all week, which isn’t fun at all when you realize that the weekend isn’t actually closer than you thought. I digress, though.

This week, we’ve got a rider who can credit at least a portion of his riding education to a pony who was purchased from a circus! That’s right, we said circus! I can’t imagine the many ways that could have worked out; from the looks of this photo, it looks to have worked out just fine.

If you’re dying for a hint, this rider currently has a horse campaigning who is named after a certain awkward character from the movie Superbad. If you have no clue what I’m talking about, it’s worth checking out if you’re into those sorts of comedies.

Don’t forget to post your guesses in the comments, and be sure to check back later for the reveal. Happy guessing!

Classic pictures and videos are priceless, but today’s innovations make it so much easier to keep our horses feeling and performing their best. They may be black and white, but Ice Horse’s line of products deliver a full spectrum of cold therapy. Check out the Ice Horse Evendura ice compression wraps, the Big Black Boot for concentrated hoof cooling and Ice Horse continuous cooling machines.
