Pit Pony (TV Movie) (1997)

Pit Pony
Willie's father is a coal miner, and his father before him. Willie's older brother has already followed in their footsteps, and he's expected to do the same. But Willie is different. He can't bear the idea of going into "the pit."

Pit Pony is a story of a boy and a horse, who go underground to work for the Ocean Deeps Mining Company, both snatched from their natural element, away from the wind and the sand and the sea.

It's a story of sacrifice and gain, friendship and family, heroism and triumph, centered on a boy who - when fate steps in - does what he has to do.
