Loading

โ€œHere comes the pony!โ€ Every year, the National Pony Express Association reignites the spirit and memory of the Pony Express during the Annual Re-Ride, where letters are carried in a mochila by over 750 riders on the original Pony Express Trail. The 1,966-mile, eight state event is conducted 24 hours a day until the mail is delivered to its destination. This year, the Re-Ride will be traveling east-bound from Sacramento, California. To St. Joseph, Missouri.

Monument volunteer Jerry Lucas will be set up inside visitor center theater on Wednesday, June 14 starting at 4 p.m. to provide a short talk about the history of the Pony Express. Following the program, see the Pony Express in action when the Annual Re-Ride stops at Scotts Bluff National
Monument.
