My Little Pony is one of the latest crazes for little girls, along with Shopkins and Littlest Pet Shop. Many of my patients know the ponies names based on their colors and I never know which is which. So I thought I’d make this helpful study guide so both you (my readers) and I can learn more about the ponies and build rapport with our patients. Many of you will remember My Little Pony from when you were little. There have been a variety of relaunches of the ponies so this article will focus on the TV show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic which is available on Netflix.
The show is focused on Twilight Sparkle and her friends who all live in the town of Ponyville in Equestria. In each episode, these ponies go on adventures and learn new lessons about friendship.
Twilight Sparkle is the main character who learns more and more about friendship with each adventure she goes on.
Spike is Twilight Sparkle’s baby dragon assistant.
Rainbow Dash is a tomboy pegasus who helps to control the weather and loves flying.
Rarity is a unicorn with a flair for fashion and glamour.
Fluttershy is fond of nature and takes care of animals, but she is a shy and timid pony.
Pinkie Pie is an energetic and active pony who enjoys hosting parties.
Applejack is a hard working pony who spends time on her family’s apple farm.
