(Lead Pony)
A horse or pony (person) who accompanies a starter to post. Lead Pony is a horse or pony who heads parade of field from paddock to starting gate. Pony people are a big part of the backstage help that put on the racing show. There are all kinds of tricks a good pony person knows to help straighten a horse out. Bad tempered horses can be somewhat contained with a good pony at their side. Ponies not only take horses to the track in the morning (ponying horses that just need light exercise with no riders) but work in the afternoon at race time. A trainer will give instructions to the pony person as to how he wants the horse warmed up before the race. It usually costs much less to have your rider accompanied with a pony or to have your horse "ponied" without a rider in the morning than if done in the afternoon.
Breeds of small horses, under 14.2 hands tall.
