The Annual Re-Ride Happens Each Year in June!

Members Mount their Horses & Re-Ride History

Follow the Pony Express Re-Ride and the mail as they travelled 1,966 miles from Sacramento, CA to St. Joseph, MO.  The Pony Riders rode day and night to make the 10 day trip. There was a GPS (SPOT device) that was carried in the Mochila, which “pinged” every five minutes, marking a Pony Rider icon on the NPS Map, below, for you to track.

Stories and status updates can be found on this page:  Reports from the Trail.
