NPEA (National Pony Express Association) Nevada division meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of every month and usually held in Carson City. Interested riders should begin attending meetings no later than April or May so they can be familiar where riders are needed. This year the mail will be going through Nevada June 17th to June 19th and is westbound for this year, for those that do not want to trailer very far there are usually a lot of sections open for new riders from about Hooten Well to Genoa. Each section is usually 2 to 5 miles and must be ridden at a brisk trot or cantor. There are some sections that are ridden at night and some during the day. The only other time commitment is to make sure horse and rider are in shape, It is a good idea to start ‘legging up’ horses about a 1 ½ months ahead of time, try to pre ride your section(s), get support crew together and for areas out in the middle of the desert get familiar on how to get out there and make sure towing vehicles are good to go.
