    its all fun and games till she slips on a road apple.





    honestly, I know the unicyclest is balancing herself and the land is mostly flat and well paved, but that poor pony has to pull her with his mouth.

    I don't think the pony is pulling her, the person is peddling herself. I think physics would land the person flat on her face if the pony pulled her.

    Unicycles can be peddled or coast. She is coasting. If she was peddling, there would be slack in the lines, plus she is slightly leaning back. Sure its a moment in time, but have you ever seen a smoothly ridden unicycle? Its always choppy and back and forth while the rider maintains their balance. And now you bringing a pony into the mix?

    Thank god she only weights a feather.
