The Pony Express Memorial Statue in Salt Lake City was completed and dedicated on Saturday, July 25, 1998, at the Pioneer Trail State Park in Salt Lake City. It is located west of the This Is The Place Monument. This statue is double life size and depicts an older rider standing beside his spent horse, having just thrown the mail bags on another horse, and waving farewell to his replacement; a young man, off balance, still getting into the saddle while his horse takes off. To the rear is the station keeper, holding the rider's exhausted horse.

The designer of this work was the late world-renowned sculptor, Dr. Avard T. Fairbanks.
