How to play

The players are asked to form a circle. The facilitator starts the game by running inside the circle and sings: “Here we go on a pony, riding on a big fat pony, here we go on a pony, this is what he told me”. Then, once the facilitator meets a player standing in the circle, they must sing and dance together: “Front to front to front my baby (movement: facing each other, wiggling), side to side to side my baby (movement: side by side, wiggling), back to back to back my baby (movement: back to back, wiggling), this is what he told me”. Once one round of the song is over, the player who just sang and danced with the facilitator must now stay inside the circle. The song and movements are repeated until everyone is inside the circle.
