what is your opinion on g1 saddles and bridels
« on: April 18, 2019, 10:20:49 AM »
Now the other day I got a lickety split in a small lot. She was wearing a pretty parlor saddle.

I don't know what I want with it. Like how did ponies get saddles (I know from megan, but aren't they like wtf that's so weird)

Some people think they look cute on the ponies but I'm not sure

So what do you think?

Bridels on ponies that are talking? cute accesoires? kinda weird?

let me know please.

Thank you.

Cheers,

Luke

Interesting point.

My take on bridles and saddles has always been - hard to put on, hard to take off, risk of staining - don't use ;)

I guess even in the stories you don't see the ponies wearing tack. Not even when they are being ridden by someone else. But I was never a fan of Megan either, so never had any dolls riding my ponies. I guess I never thought of it as anything except their free choice, since I imagine they're capable of biting as well as giving the human an earful...

I'm actually not a big fan of the saddles and bridles on ponies.  I think the early playsets like the Show Stable and Pretty Parlor were made when Hasbro was trying a "Look! You can do some of the same things you'd do with real horses with MLP!" as those two playsets seem to focus more on the equestrian side of things as they are a stable that included jumps and place to groom your ponies that included saddles.


I agree with Taffeta that the ponies probably decide if they want to use the sadles and bridles or not. :)


I will have to check my copy of Baby Firefly's Adventure but I think there's a picture of Sundance or Baby Sundance wearing a bridle and she is still able to speak while wearing it.

I think they’re cute.

I know I had a bridle and saddle in my childhood collection - I’m pretty sure they’re long lost now, but I liked them as a kid. It didn’t ever strike me as weird, either. Horses and ponies wore bridles and saddles, so it made sense to me that MLPs would too. Even though they talk, and are sentient... maybe they just like them the same way people like cute handbags and hats??? I have no idea. I never thought about it very hard.

From a collector’s standpoint, I can see how they’d be troublesome. Easily broken, faffy, likely to stain the pony... an all-around nightmare.

Generally speaking I prefer the dexterity of the pony wear. Since most of it is cloth, it is far easier to get on than any of the saddles and bridles. I don't like them much, and I do think they look a little odd. I don't remember ever seeing any of the ponies wearing any in the cartoon, and I certainly have never kept any tack on any of my ponies.

I do, however, adore the cloth(?) bridle that came with sundance. I don't own it, but I really would like to. It looks far far nicer than the plastic bridles; that one sort of subverts everything I said about any of the other tack!

I have a good amount of extras that I don't know what to do with... I just think they look cute displayed hanging in the parlor.

I liked them as a child, but I would not display my ponies with them today. Not only because I don't want to risk stains (but that is a huge reason, too), but also because it ruins the look of the pony for me. I don't even enjoy seeing the princesses with their hats, not only because they tend to fall off all the time, anyways, but just because it looks foreign. These aren't working horses meant to be ridden by a human rider.

Pony wear for baby ponies is cute, but other than that, I'm just not a huge fan. I like the pajama because I had it as a child, too, but the nostalgic value makes it here.
Specifically looking for G1 with pen markings similar to this (my initials - W.S.):

I don't like the saddles and bridles and stuff. But I also don't want Megan or Molly and I prefer a human-less pony world so that's probably just me. I'm not a horse person but I'm a pony person, you know?
I do like other ponywear a LOT but tack is just weird.

I don't like the saddles and bridles, like others have said they will stain and further it just didn't look cute. I don't see why they would have these things on sentient magical horses. In the beginning of the line they were going for more horse realism then got more into the fantastical as the line went on. I prefer less real stuff like tack and stables, and prefer more castles and magic.

I think they are cute on Collector Poses. Never tried any other pose. I'm especially scared of them staining the pony, so no one wears them. I guess they could be used as props in an elaborate display.

I think they are awkward to get to fit ponies other than the collector pose ones tbh

I've got loads but for reasons similar to what has already been mentioned, my ponies don't wear them!

I checked my copy of Baby Firefly's Adventure and found a story about the baby ponies finding Sundance's lost halter and throwing her a birthday party.

I'm with you on this. Megan and Molly are not my thing. For me I think it's because they are supposedly muggles from the 'real world' and I don't really like the idea of a bridge between the two worlds. When I'm in Ponyland I like to be completely immersed and for there to be no real world to think of. But I do like the idea of magical humans, fairy folk and animals etc in Ponyland. I assume that all ponies are magical creatures at least to some extent, so maybe there are magical humans among the other magical creatures in Ponyland? So maybe Earth ponies can tack themselves up if they ever want to give rides to thier bipedal Ponyland friends? Maybe it's like keeping a spare motorbike helmet in your garage even if you hardly ever use it.

Eh, I ignore them. Saddles and bridles are for other horse toys, not mlps impo. Unfortunately they're so big they can't be used for other models.

If I were a pony, I would wear them to a fancy event as a traditional costume. Pretty much like we still like to wear corsets and stuff to feel classy, even though they are not part of our daily life anymore. :D
