Pony Horton is an American filmmaker/journalist/actor of Irish and Cherokee descent. He has lent his talents, usually in the area of technical or visual effects work, to a number of low-and-medium budget feature films, four of which were produced by Roger Corman, including Masque of the Red Death (1989), and Wizards of the Lost Kingdom II (1989), as a matte artist/cinematographer. He also created matte paintings and photography for the Paulco films Fate, and Eternity (1989) both of which were co-produced by actor Jon Voight.
In 1983, Pony began producing and directing TV commercials for the local Los Angeles market, including the first AIDS Awareness Public Service Announcements ever aired in the U.S.
Since 2001, Pony has been producing a lifework under his own company banner, Gravity Arch Media, a docudrama on the life of William Mulholland, titled A Test Of Integrity, which stars veteran character actor Victor Izay in the role of Mulholland, the man who brought water to Los Angeles in 1913. Pony acts as both host and character, playing Mulholland's assistant, H.A. Van Norman. Pony has also produced and directed numerous TV commercials and industrials in recent years under the Gravity Arch Media name. Pony considers it ironic that today he is fighting AIDS himself, after having created those PSA's urging safe sex.
