I hear the biscuits & gravy breakfast was good! We had a good ride this year, even though some horses decided against loading. The weather was great, cool temps, and breezy! There was wildlife in the ditch now & then, but it was a blur as the horses and riders ran past. We had lunch at Veteran’s park in Cozad, thanks for the hamburger meal ladies! I was able to get pictures of some of our group, which I like to do! See you all next year!

We slugged it out thru rain/shine/wind/daylight/Darkness down Highway 92 hitting the Nebraska/Wyoming State line, at approximately 10:00 pm. My Wife Jacquie, and myself love participating in this annual historic re-enactment!! Good Luck to all the riders and their horses this year!!

It was a cool, clear, crisp night in the mid-50’s.  Stark contrast to 2018’s 105 degree heat index for our day ride.  The Keith County, Nebraska, Pony Riders gathered south of Paxton to begin our ride section.   Bibles were stamped , ride pins were handed out, and the Pony Express Oath was administered to the riders.   Rigs then went ahead to their assigned starting points and we waited for the mochila to arrive.  The 10 PM scheduled time to depart became 11:55 PM. It’s easy to look at a map, Continue Reading

PE Re-Ride Cozad to Overton

FROM: Cathy Stevens
July 3rd, 2018 PST

Due to heat & humidity the mail was late getting to Cozad. PE riders had time to visit & reconnect with each other. Then as Team Captain Mitch Ziebell swears us in, the full moon created a special moment s you look around and see your friends faces highlighted! Then Dee & Breyer start us off, running past a skunk in the ditch in the first mile. Shoestring lights on the back of their trailer worked as their guide. Cathy & BlackJack rode next at a nice trot, no wildlife., Continue Reading
