PANHANDLE, Neb. Traveling by horseback is no easy task but a group of volunteers are bringing the Pony Express back to life.

So far, they have traveled through Big Springs and Chappell. They are expected to be in Sidney around 8:20am. Once they leave there, they will head to Bridgeport. (Brian Sherrod, KNEP)

They started their morning traveling through Big Springs around 2:30am, Chappell around 6:00am and on their way to Sidney and expected to be there by 8:20am.
