Hashknife Pony Express Thursday, January 26, 3:00 p.m. Avenue of the Fountains Free for all ages Neither rain, sleet, nor dark of night can stop the Hashknife Pony Express. Each January for the last 54 years, the old west is brought to life as an elite group of riders thunder through Arizona. This exciting event is the oldest officially sanctioned Pony Express in the world. Each rider is sworn in as an honorary mail messenger braving weather, terrain, and modern-day obstacles to deliver the United States mail. Beginning in historic Holbrook, Arizona the horseback mail route covers over 200 miles from the majestic Mogollon Rim through the wilderness of the Mazatzal range to the desert city of Scottsdale, Arizona. Join us as Fountain Hills welcomes the riders for their annual delivery.
