Pony Bob set a record for the Pony Express.
Pony Bob Haslam was many things in life—a cowboy, lawman, stagecoach driver, etc.—but much of his fame is a result of his brief time with the Pony Express. Normally, his run was 75-miles east from State Line, NV, to Bucklands Station, NV. But on one ride, Indian trouble and scarce riders forced the 20-year-old Haslam to ride 190 miles east. Then, after a nine-hour sleep, he got back on his horse and rode 190 miles back to his usual station. It’s the longest ride on record for the Pony Express.
