Despite the road works which disrupted our locating this fine sculpture, it was certainly worth the effort and is an evocative statue, truly capturing the spirit of the Pony Express and its riders.

This statue is located right next to the main activity area for the Eclipse events. The park is small but it's a nice place to take a picture of an important part of St. Joe/USA history.

You can almost see this monument come to life and start riding for another mail delivery. Artist did an exceptional job of sculpturing this monument.

It was good to see a beautiful monument in the midst of the city. The area around it is quiet and lovely. I took a picture for memory and sent it to family.

The monument is a slice of the old west history. It shows a rider on his horse delivering mail between St. Joseph and California.
