Terry Bennetts is a bush ballad singer/songwriter/guitarist from Western Australia. His new single from his forthcoming CD due for release next year, Ballad of the Coal Pit Ponies was produced and recorded by Terry at his Red Dog Recording Studios in Perth.

Terry was asked to co-write the song by Ashley Cook, a coal miner and bush balladeer from Queensland. Coal pit ponies were used to haul the coal from underground before machinery took over the mines. The last two horses, Wharrier and Mr. Ed, were retired in 1990.
