Re-ride 2024: June 17th - June 27th, St. Joseph, Missouri to Sacramento, California

How can I see the Pony Express Re-ride in person?

As the riders make their way from St. Joseph, Missouri to Sacramento, California, there are scheduled exchanges where the riders will hand off the mochila and a new rider will continue the delivery. The ride takes place 24 hours a day so some of these happen in the middle of the night!

Though the schedule is subject to change, here are the some of the places that you can watch an exchange or see the riders ride by (during daylight hours!):

(Please keep in mind that due to the nature of the ride, horses, terrain, etc., the schedule is tentative. Every effort will be made to update the times of arrival on the individual site pages. You can also track the riders on the interactive tracker found below.)
