Description Pony Express rider on horseback, gun drawn, looking back to shoot. This sculpture was issued in a variety of sizes and Jackson followed the way the Greeks painted their sculptures.

The short-lived Pony Express of Russell, Majors, and Wadell, was the fastest mail service in the world. It was expensive, however, at a cost of five dollars an ounce and it was soon replaced by the telegraph.

Harry Jackson left his Chicago, Illinois home to cowboy in Wyoming. He eventually became recognized as the leading sculptor in Western Art.
