Google has a horse-n-rider game up today to celebrate the 155th anniversary of the Pony Express, a unique time and method for mail distribution in the US. Pony Express riders were generally small, light, young, and very brave as they each rode their 50 mile assigned route, changing horses every 10 miles of way.

Here's a link with Google's animated clip.
