The National Pony Express Association is hosting the 155th Anniversary of the Pony Express to celebrate the famed mail service! As you may know, the very last stop of the Pony Express was in Sacramento, and it will do so once again on June 25. There will be hundreds of riders and horses that will be carrying mail over a ten day course on the Pony Express National Historic Trail. The 1,966 mile route will hit eight states as Pony Express riders begin their long journey in Missouri, then through Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, and finish in our beloved city, Sacramento, California in Old Sacramento at the Pony Express Plaza.
