Pony Express Rides Through Woodfords

August 27 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The spirit and memory of the Pony Express is kept alive during the annual Pony Express Re-ride, held in June of each year. Organized by the National Pony Express Association, the 1,966 mile, eight state event is conducted 24 hours a day until the mail is delivered to its destination. The horse with the mail travels east in even numbered years and west in odd numbered years.

This national event is an opportunity for all young and old to ride the Pony Trail and to send a letter via the Pony Express! Over 750 riders participate and around 1,000 letters are mailed each year. This year, the ride is expected to pass through Alpine County and Woodfords on Thursday, June 4 around 1:00 PM.
