Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida, Europe and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

More video mis-adventures of our new pal, Mischievous Little Swedish Pony, giving the officials at Falsterbo the slip and the crowds a LOT of laughs
hoppyryttarna's video: Shettisen ville inte bli fångade på Falsterbo Horse show 2011,
More video mis-adventures of our new pal, Mischievous Little Swedish Pony, giving the officials at Falsterbo 'the slip' and the crowds a LOT of well-deserved laughs.
Yes, Mischievous Little Swedish Pony may be #7 in your program but he's number-one in your hearts.
On Wednesday, July 27th, I first brought you the tale of the little black pony in Sweden that just didn't find running around in circles quite so amusing, so, thinking outside-the-box, he decided to ad lib and go 'rogue' -and change a pony race into a game of who can catch the pony.
In a post I titled, My Mischievous Little Swedish Pony: Yes, ponies are still cute & funny, esp. when adults are running after them; Patrik Kittel; Eva Skemm,
I explained what happened at the 2011 Falsterbo Horse Show earlier this month.
If you missed it the first time, here below is the video that actually drew my attention to this pony and sets-up the video up at the top of this post.
From the looks of things, the newest video seems to start more-or-less at turn number three in the large jumping area, where moments before, another rider-less pony, the grey one, had forced another rider and pony towards the wall.
Therefore, what the new video shows is what was not shown about the black pony when presitstommy kept their camera on the leader: amusing the large crowd.
presitstommy video: Falsterbo Horse Show 2011, ponnygaloppen!
Since Wednesday I've learned the perfectly reasonable explanation for why they stopped following the headstrong black pony just when it was getting interesting: it was actually
presitstommy's daughter who was the leader and who eventually won the race!
I knew there just had to be more video somewhere on YouTube of this impetuous little pony giving the crowd something to cheer and laugh about, even as he embarrassed one volunteer and track official after another who tried to catch him.
Seek and ye shall find... hoppryttarna to the rescue!
And as famed radio icon Paul Harvey said so many thousands of times, "Now you know the rest of the story."
