The Pit Pony Experience Project was a community-driven idea to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the last working pit ponies in Australia. Wharrier and Mr Ed retired from the Collinsville Coal Mine in 1990. The ponies were mates to the miners and symbols of strength, unity and companionship in the small town. The Collinsville community banded together to raise nearly $200,000. Gillie and Marc created a life-sized pit pony bronze statue, which is situated in the center of the town. The project went viral and made news headlines across Australia. The Pit Pony brought a small community together, and wowed an entire nation.
