Pony Express group plans Christmas card ride
December 2, 2021
The Sweetwater County Pony Express rides again every year during the holiday season to deliver Christmas cards.
This year, which is the 20th year the event has been held, the Christmas card ride will take place Saturday, Dec. 11.
Cards will be stamped with a special Pony Express stamp and placed into a mochila — a special bag used by Pony Express riders, named for the Spanish word meaning “bag,” which is typically made of leather and designed to fit over a saddle. The cards will then be carried on horseback from the Green River Post Office to the Rock Springs Post Office.
