In The Fellowship of the Ring:
After Gollum is captured and tortured in Barad-dûr, the Black Rides are sent out from their home, Minas Morgul, to find "Baggins" and the One Ring.

A Black Rider intimidates Farmer Maggot when inquiring about "Baggins." One Black Rider nearly discovers Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin on the road as they travel through The Shire.

Several nearly catch them at the Buckleberry Ferry.

While the Hobbits are staying in the Prancing Pony at Bree, their room is rummaged by several Black Riders. Aragorn then explains that the Black Riders are the Nazgûl. The Nazgûl were once nine kings of Men. They were given nine rings of power by Sauron and were corrupted. They were then doomed to become wraiths and still serve Sauron. They had been sent to find The Shire and Baggins after Gollum had revealed those details.

At Weathertop, the Hobbits are attacked by several Black Riders and Frodo is wounded by the Witch-King with a poisoned Morgul blade.

Arwen then is pursued by them along the East Road as she carries Frodo to Rivendell. She reaches safety at the Ford of Bruinen just ahead of the Black Riders by bringing the river down on them, which drowns their steeds and sweeps them away.
