Melissa Prince is the daughter of a friend of Lulu's father who becomes a friend of the Pony Pals. Initially, the Pony Pals do not like her because she seems to hate ponies and only cares about her hair and clothes. Eventually, the girls talk and discover that Melissa is actually afraid of ponies because once when she was little, she got lost in a horse barn and ended in a stall with a horse. She felt very small and vulnerable next to the horse and was too afraid to yell for help. After this the Pony Pals warm up to Melissa, and she starts to become better at riding horses. She also reaches a compromise with the Pony Pals, where instead of giving themselves Makeovers, they give Makeovers to their ponies.
