A pit pony was a type of pony commonly used underground in coal mines from the mid-18th until the mid-20th century.
Ponies began to be used underground. The first known recorded use in Great Britain was in the Durham coalfield in 1750. At the peak of this practice in 1913, there were 70,000 ponies underground in Britain.
