Hi, about 50 years ago I read a book or story about a horse that carried its rider over a damaged railroad trestle bridge in an emergency to stop a train from going over the bridge and plunging into a river. I think the bridge was shaking because of raging flood waters. The story was about the complete trust between the horse and his rider. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Debbie, that's a good start. We need more information in the header/topic title (e.g., genre, plot, main characters). Many members only read the headers. We have thousands of book requests, so threads with vague headers are closed.

Copy the genre (e.g., historical fiction, for kids/teens/adults?) and plot details (including age of main character?) from your message #1 to the header. Click the small "edit" link after the header. This only works on the full Desktop website - not the Mobile website or app. (On the Mobile website, there's a "Desktop version" link at the bottom of the page.)

- Around what year did you read this book? A range of years is fine.
