Show Summary

The Young Riders is a romantic western TV series that ran for three seasons from 1989 to 1992 and is directed by Ed Spielman. The series is set right before the beginning of the American Civil War and focuses on a Pony Express station in Sweetwater, Kansas. At the Pony Express station, several young riders are responsible for delivering the mail. Riders employed at the station include William F. Cody "Buffalo Bill" (Stephen Baldwin), James Butler (Josh Brolin), Ike McSwain (Travis Fine), Running Buck Cross (Greg Rainwater), The Kid (Ty Miller) and Lou McCloud (Yvonne Suhor). The series follows the riders as they encounter difficult tasks including interpersonal problems with each other and dangerous delivery conditions in order to deliver the mail. Rachel Dunne (Clare Wren) and Emma Shannon (Melissa Leo) act as the house mothers of the Pony Express and attempt to care for the riders and provide interference amongst the riders when tensions boil over.
