Almost as good as cat riding sheep.

It's a shame the the corgi's legs are so short, because it clearly wants to be spurring that horse, because that is clearly a getaway.

And one of the four beasts said come and see, and I saw.

Theirs was a love forbidden. "Come away with me," the corgi whispered. "Not until someone sees us and puts us on the Internet," replied the smitten yet savvy pony.

...Its rider held a bowl, and he was given a snackie, and he rode out as a pupper bent on nappies.

Seriously? Almost an hour and nobody's made a dog and pony show joke?

We're slipping. We're slipping badly.

This popped up on Facebook first and when you look at the original post, the woman who posted it edited it to address allegations that were apparently being made. Here's the text:
ATTENTION!!!
STOP sending friend request!! I will not be accepting any of the over 500 request I've gotten!! I do not know you people!!

Also, the dog is my neighbors. He randomly shows up. I guess I just caught him riding my people at the perfect time!
The dog didn't get hurt! No the dog is not abused at his home, he just likes to travel the rural area we live. Cricket is fine, he lost his eye along time ago in an incident that had nothing to do with the dog! I DID not put the dog on the pony! Honestly I was pulling in my drive way from going to Mcdonalds when I seen this happening. I'm lucky I even got the video because my phone was nearly dead. I didn't have any intentions of his video being viral. I just post a funny video I thought my friends would enjoy. I'm glad everyone got a good laugh out of this.

If there's ever gonna be a dog and pony show I can get behind, it's gonna be this one.

There. How hard was that?

Look, if she didn't put him up on top of the pony, how the hell did he get up there? I mean, we have video evidence of the difficulty corgis have getting up a short flight of stairs, for godsake. I call shenanigans. (But very adorable shenanigans.)

That must be a really patient pony. I don’t know how else a dog with 5” legs would be able to climb aboard.

I imagine a friendly corgi accessibility ramp strategically placed near the hay bale

It's even better than Chimpanzee Riding on a Segway, even without the theme song.

Maybe the pony lies down so the dog can get aboard

Maybe this is sort of their thing

corgis can be bad at stairs but really that's more an inertia issue than anything else? (or practice, in the case of smol corgi puppies). i have known some corgis, and they can definitely jump up onto, say, a couch -- and higher distances than that, when snacks are involved. that pony isn't too much taller than a couch.

...oh god this is all going to end in bunch of corgi truther videos on youtube isn't it
fucking 2018, we can't have anything pure

The real question is, what is that corgi up to that requires secretive, midnight cavalry training?

you know what they say, lie down with dogs get up with ponies

I can say from first hand experience that corgis definitely have ups.

I also really want to know how that corgi got on that pony. Really bad.

I love the corgs and have enabled folks to decorate my volunteer job in corgi pics now. This fits right in.

Her breath a happy doggo pant

Because I could not stop for Corg—
He kindly stopped for me—
The Pony held but just Ourselves—
I scritched him and cried “Whee”
