"Wohin, kleines Pony?" (English translation: "Where to, Little Pony?") was Austria's debut entry in the Eurovision Song Contest, performed in German by Bob Martin. The song was performed in the Eurovision Song Contest 1957.

The song was performed fifth on the night, following Italy's Nunzio Gallo with "Corde della mia chitarra" and preceding the Netherlands' Corry Brokken with "Net als toen". At the close of voting, the song had received only 3 points, placing it last in the field of 10. Bob Martin never recorded the song in studio conditions.

The song is a moderately up-tempo number, particularly by the then-standards of the Contest. The singer asks his "little pony" where they should travel today, and informs it that his song will accompany them regardless.

The song was succeeded as Austrian representative at the 1958 Contest by Liane Augustin singing "Die ganze Welt braucht Liebe".
