• BronyCon Ditches Cartoon Equine Exclusivity for REAL Horse Power

    Nothing is more MANLY than riding off into the sunset with a cowboy hat, rifle, and noble steed. Obviously BronyCon saw the benefits of unleashing this age-old trope, and has shifted their brand to "HorseCon" in response.

    What should you expect now that this humongous change has taken place? What kind of special guests can we expect to attend? 

    Head on down below the break for the press release!

    (BALTIMORE)—The team that brought you BronyCon is proud to announce their newest endeavor: HorseCon. In order to meet the demands of a changing market, BronyCon has shifted its core branding and scope.

    Throughout the “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” hiatus, many of BronyCon’s core staff turned to corporeal horses to fill the void left by the absence of pastel cartoon horses. This, compounded with overwhelming public demand for “horse famous” guests, brought about what will surely be a well-received total rebranding. It is with great joy and anticipation that the team launches HorseCon, the world’s largest convention for fans of colorful animated equines that also love talented, earthly equines.

    As no event is complete without a VIP roster, HorseCon is also thrilled to announce some excellent guests to kick things off. Chairman Josh Dean had the following to say: “People have demanded that we bring them famous horse guests. We just want to let them know that we heard them, and we weren't going to horse around with our new line up!”

    Tilly is perhaps best known for her role as Argo in “Xena: Warrior princess” - a role she would later reprise in “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.” The Palomino was praised by Lucy Lawless as her favorite co-star, and is a true crowd pleaser.

    The success of the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy can undoubtedly be contributed to Percy, who left their mark on the series in the unforgettable role of Arod. Mostly removed from the spotlight these days, the New Zealand-native Percheron occupies his days enjoying fine hays and grains with his paddock mate.

    Prior to making his silver screen debut as Hidalgo in the film of the same title, RJ was a humble American Paint from Texas, but his time with co-star Viggo Mortensen made him the household name he is today. His other prominent roles include “American General” and “Taking Woodstock.” When not acting, RJ loves to connect with members of his fan club at horse festivals throughout the country.

    Dobber has become the most in-demand guest in the horse fandom. A brief but significant role in the wildly popular “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog” launched the Thoroughbred in to an illustrious career. With a creative and artful approach, Dobber brings depth to every role they set hoof in to.
