Ponygirl, alternatively rendered as pony girl or pony-girl, is an object of sexual fetish.
A ponygirl is a woman dressed in an outfit commonly made of leather, rubber/latex or vinyl: the outfit has some relationship to equestrian tack, and generally shows a desire to transform the wearer into (you already guessed that) a pony. Commonly, a ponygirl is made to perform certain activities, but the common feature is that ponygirl is a submissive rôle.
There are also ponyboys, although it appears to be a less common fetish.
Ponygirl clothing and bondage items are many, but the most common are these:
- Gag: usually of the "bar" type, it represents a horse bit; usually part of a larger head harness, at times connected to reins
- hood: occasionally decorated with horse ears and ay have a hole through which the ponygirl's hair is threaded, to make a mane
- harness: it may include arm restraints
- footwear: ranging from high heels to hoof-shaped platform shoes or boots, horseshoes optional
More can be added (as in most BDSM scenarios), like nipple clamps, chastity belts and leg spreader bars. One classic item is the horse tail buttplug—which has a long tail attached to the base that, when inserted, provides the appearance of a horse's tail.
Typical ponygirl scenes and games are translations of horse-related activities like dressage and other forms of training. The ponygirl may be made to pull a small cart or to prance in some sort of outdoor game. Other, and harder, activities include branding and piercing.
Ponygirl fiction abounds, and it is usually not very realistic. What we are dealing with is a human being made to represent a horse, but not a horse: this poses definite anatomical and psychological limits. However, BDSM is all about imagination and role-playing, so ponygirl afficianados always make due with what's available. For example, a saddle on a ponygirl would be mostly symbolic ... on a muscular ponyboy things would be certainly different.
