The Board of Governors of the Western States Trail Foundation (WSTF) welcomes you to an endurance riding event of distinction, recognized as one of the world's best tests of true horsemanship. Read more »
Tuesday evening the Board of Governors of the Western States Trail Ride made the decision on the trail for this year’s ride. We feel we have enough good information to publicly announce the following:
The ride will start at Soda Springs and travel to Lyon Ridge. Riders will use the Red Star Ridge trail to drop into Duncan Canyon, and ride the Duncan Canyon trail to Robinson Flat.
CHANGE: The deadline to enter Tevis without a late entry fee is now July 19, 2017.
WSTF President’s Message
Dr. Mike Peralez is the head veterinarian for the Tevis in 2017. Mike is a rider and rode in NATRC in the 1970s as a junior. I know this because I competed against him then. He also has four Tevis buckles, including one from 1983, when Tevis also started in Soda Springs due to excessive snow.

Important Tevis Trail Updates
The WSTF, Tevis Cup Ride Committee and Trails Committee want to keep you informed about the trail and trails in need of trail repair in order to keep riders and horses safe.
Congratulations to Lorna Christopherson of Salem, Oregon for winning a free entry to the Tevis Cup 100-Miles-One-Day Western States Trail Ride (Tevis)!
2017 TEVIS CUP RIDE
In the early days of 100 mile rides, riders would carry flashlights when riding at night. The problem was that riders couldn’t hold the flashlight still while riding. The bobbing light would bother the horses and give the riders motion sickness. Etiquette did evolve for the use of flashlights during this period. Riders did not ride upon other horses with their flashlight beam flashing about and riders turned their flashlight off when asked. Flashlights were mostly used for an emergency or for equipment repair.
