How does their world work, for them it seems Equestria is the name of the planet, but to me it sems to be the name of a country.I haven't gone extremely deep into the MLP world yet (just started watching Season 2 Episode 4, lol), but I'd say Equestria is the name of the planet itself. There's ponyville, Canterlot, the Apple town with the mamoths (lol, forgot what it was called), etc. and they are all located in 'Equestria'. Perhaps it's just a province, or maybe the whole country.
Any thoughts on that?
I personally like it to be a country, but the odds are going in favor to the term 'planet', since I always hear the villains (example: Luna, Discord) say 'I will rule all of Equestria' and bla bla bla. Kinda relates to Ganondorf from LoZ saying 'I will rule all of Hyrule', lol.
there's an episode you haven't seen yet called hearth's warming eve, in which they describe the origin of equestria, which wasn't initially inhabited by ponies, it was where they migrated after their old country was frozen by the hatred of the three races: earth ponies, pegasi and unicorns
equestria is just a country, not a planet
also, "equestria" refers to horse riding, and since there are griffons and such, it hints that there are other countries out there
