Albert, the teenage son of a poor farmer, falls in love with a beautiful bay foal. When the horse, now nearly grown, is brought to auction, his father is the top bidder.

Albert is thrilled and names the colt Joey, but his mother is dismayed—her husband's purchase leaves them without enough money to pay the rent. Albert trains Joey to be a plough horse so that he can earn his keep.

But in 1914, when WWI begins, the army is looking for good horses and his father sells Joey without Albert's knowledge. Albert vows to find Joey one day and bring him home.

Joey is bought by a kind officer, but as a war horse, he experiences the horror of battles in France. Though he endures many hardships, his courage touches the soldiers around him.
