The "Giddy Up" Alternative to Gas

It's no secret that not everyone in the Motor city could give a crap about cars. Just ask the local hipsters riding fixed-gear bikes instead of driving. But today we crown a new Prince of the Carless here in Car City. Jordan Williams is 20-year-old owner Magic, a Hackney pony that he uses to get around. “It’s really unusual. Especially in the city,” said Williams. He's part of a group of Urban Cowboys sent to confuse locals and do charity work with the equines. “When I saw the horse just run down the street I said, Oh my goodness are you serious? Are you serious?” laughed Tiana Wiggins. Wiggins lives on the same street as Williams and it is the first time she has seen the pony. [Action 7 News]
