Although it is no longer being made, The Young Riders has proven to be very popular on the web, and fan fiction about the show is in abundance (okay, there are probably more stories out there from Star Trek but there are more stories than I can count!!!)

Set in 1860, The Young Riders brought alive the world of the Pony Express, and the riders who made that venture possible. The episodes were filled with romance and adventure (sometimes at the same time) and while not entirely historically accurate, they still kept us enthralled.

U.S. TYR fans you are in luck! Odyssey Network will be screening The Young Riders starting from the 1st October 1999. You can check out their website @:

This came as a total shock. Christopher Pettiet, who played Jesse James in the 3rd season of The Young Riders died at the age of 24.
