A mochila (pronounced mo-

chee-lah) is Spanish for knapsack, pack, or pouch) was used for carrying mail by the Pony Express in the nineteenth century - a type of mail bag.

The mochila was removed from the exhausted horse and swiftly placed over the saddle of the new fresh waiting horse that the relay station had for him.
