2021 Pony Express Re-Ride along the American River

Pony Express hand-off along the American River on the first day of the re-ride, June 16, 2021.

The Mochila arrived in St. Joseph, Missouri on June 26 marking the successful delivery in just 10 days.

Exchanges, like the one pictured here, took on average just two minutes without much fanfare. Simply riders and horses doing it like they did in 1860.
