In the coast range mountains on the western edge of the Salinas Valley is a ranch where Tom, a lad of about ten, longs for a pony. He lives with his mom, who was born there, her dad, a talkative pioneer who misses the old West, Tom's dad Fred Tiflin, who comes from the city and after years on the ranch doesn't feel at home there, and Billy, their trusted hand, a real cowboy. While Fred has to sort out whether he wants to stay a rancher and come to terms with his son being closer to Billy than to himself, Tom gets a pony and learns directly about responsibility and loss. What lessons can each learn, and are tragedy and hard choices all that life offers? Are laughter and joy anywhere?Written by

Roosevelt changed the position to hand-over-the-heart. This was later codified into law in 1942. See more »

Average family drama movie about a young boy, his new Pony and his family.Good drama and adequate acting is displayed here.The story is simple but quite entertaining for the whole family.A better script would have helped this movie.A must see for grade school children who love Horses or animals.Only for fans of this type of genre and big fans of Loy and Mitchum......
