Annual Pony Express Re-Ride

June 18 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Come to Rock Creek Station State Historical Park on June 18 for the 2024 Pony Express Re-Ride Exchange.

Each June, the National Pony Express Association recreates the Pony Express in a commemorative re-ride. Letters are carried by horseback over the original trail stretching from St. Joseph, Missouri to Sacramento, California. The 1,966-mile, eight-state event is conducted 24 hours a day over a 10-day period until complete. On June 18, riders will exchange the mail at Rock Creek Station’s East Ranch at approximately 1:45 p.m. The re-ride will reach Fort Kearny State Historical Park on June 19 at approximately 6 a.m.

Arrive early, as the times are estimates and the Pony can be ahead of or behind schedule.

Visit for a complete ride schedule and to track the ride as it happens.

Contact the park for more information at or 402-729-5777.

A valid state park vehicle permit is required for entry.
