  The beginning of the trail in the stable.

Only the bravest young orphan men were signed on as Pony Express riders due to the extreme dangers of the trail. Riders would gallop at top speed from one station to another, changing horses at each at top speed. They would rest only when they reached their destination and passed the mail bag to the next rider.
