My Pony is an unreleased track recorded by Prince and George Clinton in March 1990, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Horn overdubs by Eric Leeds, Atlanta Bliss, Maceo Parker and Fred Wesley were recorded on 26 January 1991, also at Paisley Park Studios.

Maceo Parker and Fred Wesley were likely brought in by George Clinton, who had worked with them previously. This track marks the first appearance by Maceo Parker on a song penned by Prince, years before he would record consistently with him, beginning in 1999, as well as joining his live band on a full-time basis. The track also marks Fred Wesley’s only known appearance on a Prince-written song, although Prince has covered some tracks co-written by Wesley in live shows. Prince, Eric Leeds, Maceo Parker and Fred Wesley also contributed to Get Satisfied, written by George Clinton, Clip Payne and Tracey "Treylewd" Lewis.

The track was intended for George Clinton’s next album, which became Hey Man... Smell My Finger, but was not included on any known configuration of the album, and remains unreleased.
