Ms. Harshwhinny by harwicks-art Ms. Harshwhinny by harwicks-art
One more in preparation for this weekend's episode...  I'm calling it now:  Ms. Harshwhinny is the Pony of Shadows and the big bad of Season 4!

Okay, probably not.  But how interesting is it that we have a plotline that is crossing season boundaries, as the preparation for the Equestrian Games continues from last season's "Games Ponies Play", and I think it's highly likely that the games themselves are still to come later in 2014.  Games organizer Ms. Harshwhinny may not be a major supporting character, but if she continues to represent the Games then I suspect she'll continue to pop up from time to time. 

I'm curious to learn more about the games.  It sounds like different cities will be competing, and so there may indeed be a Ponyville team assembled at some point.  One would think that Applejack and Dash would be shoe-ins to join it (although Dash might have her allegiance torn with Cloudsdale...  Or even with the Wonderbolts.)  There could be a lot of good story to mine out of the Games once they finally happen.

Much like Fleur, she is quite lovely, even for a games inspector. Here's hoping that we see more of her in the Equestrian Games later this year.

Hmm... Say, are you planning on doing a portrait of her counterpart, Ms. Peachbottom?

Ooh, stern.
Whenever she spoke, I found myself focusing on two things:
1) That weird, I-think-it-was-supposed-to-be-upper-class grimace she kept making
2) She sounded kinda like Anne Robinson from the weakest link.

I'm actually impressed with the voice mind you, they managed to give her a posh voice that didn't sound as ridiculous as some of the Canterlot nobles for instance.

I really liked Harshwhinny in Flight To The Finish. She's not snobby but rather a harsh yet fair and classy pony who encourages others to be professional and act under control (Which is odd since Harshwhinny herself was geeking out after CMC performance at the near end. I found her gushing out on the performance so adorable. :aww:)

Maybe I'm a bit too into Star Trek but she reminds of Vulcans.

They gave Harshwhinny some great expressions today.  She's becoming one of my favorites.

That epic look Ms. Harshwhinny is giving could stop a train.
I think its kinda hawt even though I know a human version of this character would make me gag.

It might be redundant to mention something obvious at this point, but the Equestria Games plotline is co-inciding nicely with the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.

Yes, that was a clever tie-in...  Especially since they will never be airing new episodes during a summer olympics.  I wonder if the Equestrian Games will take advantage of the Arctic climate for some skiing events and such...

Cool! She really doesn't have a whole lot of fanart, so it's always nice to see a picture featuring her, especially if the art's as good as yours.

I like her expression, too; stern, leaving no doubt about her high standards, but not entirely unforgiving.

Heh... after her showing in this morning's episode, I expect she'll be getting a lot more fan art.  She was a hoot from facial expressions alone, and I'm sure we'll see more of her later in the season.
