Bronze Pony Express Horse & Rider

This Bronze Pony Express Horse & Rider is the largest sculpture of its kind in the Midwest.

Sculpted by Dr. Richard Bergen, Salina, the exciting bronze piece seems alive, thundering across the prairie to the next station. The bronze sculpture was made possible by the R.L. and Elsa Helvering Trust and dedicated by Gov. John Carlin on July 4, 1985, the 125th anniversary celebration of the Pony Express.

The statue had to be moved from its original site west of Marysville due to the railroad relocation project. You can see the beautiful sculpture in the Pony Express Plaza located between Broadway and Highway 36 at 7th Street in Marysville. 2 Lifetiles Murals are also located in this new park. More information about the murals is available on the Attractions page
