Bridle Gossip is the ninth episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.


When the ponies are afflicted with bizarre and humorous sicknesses they accuse a mysterious zebra named Zecora of placing a curse on them.


This episode started off as a "Shaman Episode" on November 6, 2009. Three days later, on November 9, it was added to the writing schedule as episode #15, then moved up to episode #9 on November 13.

For a short time (from November 30 to December 1), Bridle Gossip was listed as #10 in the writing schedule, but it immediately later moved back up to episode #9. When the first draft was finished, Shaman's name was changed to Zecora. Revisions were made to the script from January 5–7, 2010. Voice recording occurred on February 8.
