A rider, wearing a red shirt and black hat mounted his horse in St. Joseph, Missouri, June 10 at 3 p.m. and began the 41st annual Pony Express Re-ride.
“This is the 159th anniversary of the Pony Express,” National Pony Express Association president Dean Atkin said Thursday. "The re-ride is an effort to keep the history alive.”
Riders made their way up from Colorado, north out of Sidney and made their way through Mud Springs, past Courthouse and Jail rocks, through Bridgeport, past Chimney Rock, to the Scotts Bluff National Monument and into Wyoming Thursday.
