Pony Play Goes Mainstream (?)
Works could be found where people literal turned horses fell in love in that form (Wind in Cairo, 1989). And even collections like Donna Barr's "Transformations" (Lulu, 2006) which focus on becoming a horse (or horse-like) as a distinct fetish interest.
However it is only more recently that works like the Victorian-era Copper Horse series by Miss Merikan have appeared on Amazon (See more examples here). If earlier prose works of equine roleplay exist, they must be from the ephemeral world of direct order erotica, and no obvious record remains.
A kink that was fading into obscurity is finding a new and more diverse audience through writing that blends the fetish core of the pony play concept with worlds where the more ridiculous aspects of its "reality" are buffed beautifully away.
Eventually we will probably see the mainstream media suddenly "discover" this modern trend that has it roots firmly planted in 100 years of kinky history.
