Riders from the Pony Express made their way into Sacaton with a special greeting to the Gila River Indian Community on Nov. 10. Each year, a re-creation of the Pony Express is carried out by members of the Gilbert Days Rodeo committee, who meet with students from the Community to talk about the history of the all but forgotten mail service.
To greet the horseback riders, were students from Sacaton Middle School, who awaited the dusty travelers from over the hill.
The students met with the 2018 Gilbert Days Rodeo Queen Kennadee Riggs and Rodeo Teen Queen Karlie Brewer.
