Pony Express. The Pony Express was a privately-operated mail delivery service which operated in the United States from the Missouri River to the Pacific coast in 1860 and 1861. They appeared as the heroes of the Italian dime novel Pony Express #1-9 (1936-1938).

The Pony Express was a fictionalization of the true Pony Express riders’ exploits, making them into adventurers rather than couriers.
