2023 Pony Express Re-Ride Exchange at Rock Creek Station SHP

June 16, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Join us at Rock Creek Station SHP for the 2023 Pony Express Re-Ride Exchange!

Each June the National Pony Express Association recreates the Pony Express in a Commemorative Re-Ride. Letters are carried in a mochila over the original trail that stretches from St. Joseph, MO to Sacramento, CA. The 1,966 mile, eight state event is conducted 24 hours a day over a 10-day period until the mail is delivered to its destination! 

On Friday, June 16th Rock Creek Riders will carry the mochila eastbound through Jefferson County from about 5PM to the Nebraska-Kansas line by 10PM. An exchange will take place on Rock Creek Station’s East Ranch at approximately 8:15PM. 

Arrive early, as the times are estimates and the Pony can be ahead or behind schedule! Go to for a complete ride schedule and track the progress of the riders as it happens!

A 2023 vehicle park entry permit is required and can be purchased at the entrance.
