    There isn't one specific equine word that correlates.  

    A pig is a swine that hasn't yet come to maturity. 

    There are different words for immature horses that are broken down by age and gender.

    Foal - Baby horse under one year old

    Yearling - Young horse that has lived one year (is in it's second year of life)

    Filly - Young female horse under the age of four

    Colt - Young male horse under the age of four

    Please note that it's a common misconception that a pony is a young horse.  Pony refers to breed, not age.  Ponies are horses that are bred to be under a certain height.  A pony is a pony from the day it's born until the day it dies. 

    ETA:   Russ, you are wrong.   A pig is a young swine.   A piglet is a baby swine.

      Pig and swine are interchangeable terms. Neither is specific to the age of the animal. A young pig/swine is a piglet.
