W: Tevis Educational Ride is Nearly Half Full

Entries will be limited to 40 participants and then we will start a waiting list. Get your entry in soon if you want to attend!

The Event:

The educational ride is aimed at riders wishing to participate in the Tevis Cup Ride in the future; to give riders a true look into the beauty of the trail and its challenges; to educate future Tevis riders as to best practices and horse care to help them successfully complete the Ride.

Mentors: Experienced Tevis finishers will guide you over the Tevis trail and answer you questions in camp and on trail. Our goal is two or three riders/mentor. We will make every effort to accommodate fitness and experience levels. You will be paired with your mentor on Friday afternoon.

Friday: Speakers and Seminars—speakers and seminars will begin on Friday afternoon at approximately 2 pm. The schedule of speakers will be announced at a later date.

Saturday: Robinson Flat to Chicken Hawk Base Camp, 28 miles. Highlights include the canyons, Swinging Bridge and the climb into Devil’s Thumb. There is a vet check at Last Chance and Deadwood.

Sunday: Chicken Hawk Base Camp to the Lower Driver’s Flat parking lot, 24 miles. Riders will see in the daylight what many only ride after dark. A rest stop is planned at Francisco’s with water and snacks for riders and horses. A full Vet Check takes place at the Lower Drivers Flat parking lot - end of ride.

Riders will be shuttled to the start Saturday and shuttled back to base camp on Sunday. Vet Checks will simulate Tevis Vet Checks.

Fitness Requirement (Horse): Between January 1, 2018 and June 17, 2019 your horse must complete 50 miles of AERC Limited Distance or Endurance miles or a similar sanctioning organization. Horse and rider fitness is a must!
