Well, the world has ended.
I'll go with Rainbow Dash (for the water and general badassery), Applejack (for the infinite apples), and Fluttershy (for the tasty rabbits and guardian bear). Which three ponies would you bring?
For me I would have to go with Applejack, Fluttershy, and Twilight.
For one, Applejack is most reliable pone. Her equipment means that with careful planning our group will have an infinite food source so long as it's protected from bandits and mutants - also Applejack is strongpone and can crush skulls with ease. She will be able to carry more weight and will have greater resilience against fatigue and injury than any other pony. Being the most mentally stable pony, she is the least likely member to snap under pressure. She is also a terrible liar, something I would bet my life on. Her charisma and ability to round up critters will allow her to take an effective commanding position over the future Rabbit Army - to be discussed below. Her expertise and knowledge of apples and apple accessories will allow us to maximize our utility over this natural resource. Applejack also has the most huggable tail. Hugging her tail will boost my morale.
Fluttershy's ability as a pegasus to manipulate weather will allow us to quickly cultivate apple orchards, however her greatest advantage comes from her equipment. Fluttershy's rabbits are small, fast, agile, possess a keen sense of hearing, and -most importantly- are able to communicate through Fluttershy. This makes the dozen rabbits extremely useful for reconnaissance, scavenging, and early detection as Fluttershy acting as our translator. Sustained by the apples, courtesy of AJ, they can multiply and grow into a formidable army of trained and loyal killer rabbit warriors led by Cult Leader Fluttershy, Applejack, Twilight, and myself. The Bear will be a significant asset to the group as well, making sure our precious fledgling resources and rabbit squad are protected from tougher hostile forces. Bear's omnivorous diet will allow him to nourish himself with apples, but disobedient and traitorous rabbits may be fed to him as well. His keen senses, immense strength, and survival instincts will see our group through the bleakest of situations. His name is Piccolo.
Twilight's aptitude for magic makes her invaluable to the group, as she can easily create makeshift fortresses with levitation spells, quickly formulate tactics and strategies, and basically being a walking encyclopedia. Being highly intelligent, Twilight also has an impeccable knack for organization which will play an essential role in consolidating the group as well as the Rabbit Army - she'll be the mastermind behind rank structure, logistics, and formulating missions. On the most intense and crucial assignments, Twilight will be able to teleport squads of elite rabbit operatives discretely into territories of interest to gather intelligence or to secure them. Basically she's the brain and specialist of the group. Nuff said.
