A recent opinion poll proved once again that most horses would rather gallop than canter, trot, or walk, if physical ailments and other limitations are removed from the equation. 89% of horses under 20yrs of age said they would gallop at least two miles a day under ideal space and weather circumstances. Interestingly, ponies expressed a downtick in galloping desire, as the traditionally playful subclass selected gallop as their favorite means of locomotion only 78% of the time, down from 93% in the previous poll. At press time it's unclear why this is the case, although top researchers in the field -- which is about 25 acres and located just outside Lexington, Kentucky -- note that a spate of YouTube videos parodying or otherwise exploiting My Little Pony footage have greatly reduced overall pony morale.
