From the beginning, the Pony Express had a precarious existence during the whole of its brief 18 month history. The problems were not only due to the rigors of the trail or Indian raids but financial as well. Although the Pony Express delivered the mail across the country within the 10 day time limit, financially it was a disaster.

Although there has been a stigma around homeschooling, it is apparent that there are many benefits derived as a result of home schooling. The home schooling student benefits, the parents and family benefit because homeschooling binds families closer together.
Additional benefits of homeschooling are as follows. In most cases the teacher to student ratio is lower with homeschooling. Curriculum is customized to the needs of the child or education desired for children by parents. This is especially true as regards to education on religious matters where evolution or creationism is discussed.
Learning never stops in the home school environment. Parents are not just lecturers or observers. They are active participants expanding, explaining and encouraging children to be inquisitive and explore the areas that interest them without constraints or arbitrary rules from outside source.
Another benefit to homeschooling is that parents can model and reinforce valuable behavior and de-emphasize undesirable behavior in a natural manner. Use of homeschooling curriculum such as we provide with free coloring pages is an important addition to homeschooling benefits.
Even though the Pony Express had a very brief history and troubled finances, the Pony Express has achieved a legendary status. Only one mail delivery was lost and 35,000 pieces of mail were sent across the continent by its colorful dispatch riders. At a time when the North and South of the nation were pulling apart, the Pony Express helped the East and West connect together.
Forever in our collective memories will always be that solitary figure of the Pony Express rider dashing across the wide plains on horseback. His time may have been brief but his legend continues on.
