The Egyptians may have been the first ever to have established a postal service in 2,000 BC. WOW! That’s 4,000 years ago! And, China used riders on horses to deliver messages around 1,000 BC. How many years ago was that? That’s correct, 3,000 years!
Back in the early 1860s, the western United States also used horses to help deliver the mail. That mail service was called the Pony Express. Maybe, you have heard of it. It only lasted about a year and a half, but you read about it in many stories about the American West. You can learn more about it here.
