Best Answer

The riders for the pony express had to know how to ride REALLY Good. They would ride at day at night and have to watch out for dangers. Most old ads said they were looking for wiry fellows who were younger maybe in their older teen ages. the government prefered orphans, so if the riders got hurt, they wouldn't be "missed"
