In three weeks, human athletes from around the globe will gather in Sochi to compete in the ultimate competition: the Olympics. In Equestria, however, the pony equivalent of all that excitement begins tomorrow. This Saturday’s new My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic finds Rainbow Dash and her pals traveling to Rainbow Falls, where they’re set to compete in the qualifying round of the Equestria Games.
There’s just one problem: As The Hub Network’s official episode description puts it, Rainbow and company soon realize “that the competition definitely has a hoof up on them.” Things get even more complicated when the fast-flying pony gets a tempting offer to join Cloudsdale’s elite flying squad. Will she accept — and leave her friends in the dust?
