To see if you think you could be a Pony Express rider I must introduce you to Lil’ Charlie Miller, a.k.a., Bronco Charlie, he became the youngest rider of the Pony Express at just 11 years old. So, what’d it take to be a rider? The typical “help wanted” ad called for,”Young, skinny, wiry fellows. Not over 18. Must be expert riders. Willing to risk death daily. Orphans preferred.”
Now is that a dream job or what? and you think you have it bad.
