Here Comes the Pony Re-Ride

2017 Re-Ride Schedule 

Members Mount their Horses and Re-Ride History

Follow the Pony Express Re-Ride and the mail as they travel 1,966 miles from St. Joseph, MO to Sacramento, CA. The Pony Riders travel day and night to make the 10 day trip. There is a GPS that is carried in the Mochila. While viewing the map you can zoom in and out for a better view. This map will be active 24/7. This map can also be viewed in a separate window.

You also can check the National Pony Express Hotline at 1-855-809-8589. This Hotline is updated as soon as reports begin coming in from the trail. These reports come from riders, support staff for the riders, Radio Ham Operators and from the interactive map.

Stories and status updates are also added to our Reports from the Trail.

MSG:As of 17:40 the mail was transferred to California to complete Nevada.
Considering the weather in the eastern part of our state and the excitement
at the finish I think the Nevada Pony Express Riders should be very proud
that the mail was only 10 minutes late overall. It appears that there were
no serious injuries to people or ponies.
Great job and thanks to all.
It was a blast.
See y'all next year
