Flood of Bruinen

The Flood of Bruinen was a sudden rising of the Bruinen River that washed away the Black Riders that were pursuing Frodo[1] on 20 October T.A. 3018.[2] The flood was commanded by Elrond, and Gandalf caused some of the waves to take the form of white horses with white riders upon them.[3]
