2022 Pony Express Re-Ride

June 20th, 2022 PDT

I am 70 years old and I am riding my first Pony Express Re-ride. How did I not know that this organization even existed years ago?  I am riding my 13 year Morgan Mare Vintage Firefly who I have only owned 7 months. I ask myself when I first got the notion to look into this awesome experience and I have to think it was finding the 3 Cent Pony Express stamps in my grandmothers stamp collection.  I then got my first letter carried by the Pony from my friend, Continue Reading

I was so excited to come across the riders in Folsom. They were so nice to let me interrupt them with my questions.  I was so thrilled to see them and as a past equestrian have so much respect for them and for all selflessly donating their time. Click on the Heading, above to see more pictures.

After a short night and a day working, I leave to head to my last ride section for the 2019 Re-Ride. This leg was in Meyers! Thankfully Jan & Chris were able to come help and be ride support for me to shuttle my rig to my end point. We had scouted a couple of weeks before to figure out where to stage the trailer and discovered that HWY 50 & 89 was a construction zone! Caltrans is putting in a round-a-bout! Yikes lots of heavy equipment, cones, erosion tarps, Continue Reading
