Matt Mcrae, a 15-year member of the Hashknife riders, galloped into Pine on Feb. 8 in the 54th re-enactment of the legendary Pony Express Ride. Navajo County Sheriff’s Posse members, like Matt, are keeping history alive for future generations.

The turnout was greater than expected as residents assembled at the post office on Feb. 8 to see the legendary Pony Express ride out of the pages of history and into present-day Pine in a re-enactment that brought the Old West to life. Townsfolk gathered to celebrate our Western heritage and our state’s centennial and salute the riders as they galloped into town in the 54th re-enactment of the Hashknife Pony Express. Curious onlookers filled the parking lot, stood on the sidewalk or sat on the bed of pickup trucks and greeted neighbors while enjoying the social atmosphere of the occasion.
