The Red Pony is a 1949 film adaptation of John Steinbeck's collection of related short stories, individually written and published in the 1930s, with a book published in 1937 and again in 1945 under the title The Red Pony. Steinbeck also wrote the screenplay for this film. A young boy, played by Peter Miles, becomes very attached to a newborn colt.

It is notable today because of the original score composed by Aaron Copland, which he also arranged and published as a suite The Red Pony. Copland himself conducted London's New Philharmonia Orchestra in a recording of the music for Columbia Records, which was later reissued on CD by Sony Records.

Although The Red Pony was not even nominated in any category, Copland won an Academy Award that year for the score of another film, The Heiress, directed by William Wyler
