In 2017 an anonymous donor stepped up with an idea to sponsor an entry for someone who had a dream to ride Tevis but the years got away from them. The contest is reborn in 2018!
The essay contest is limited to people that have never ridden the Tevis Cup ride before, who are qualified to enter the Ride as of May 13 and they must be at least 60 years of age on the day of the ride.
The essay requirements are: To enter the contest, in 500 words or less tell us about yourself, your horse and your journey together as a team. Please share the experiences that you feel have prepared you for this challenge. Let us know the impact this entry will have on reaching your dream of participating in the legendary Tevis Cup. Entries are to be mailed to the WSTF Office indicated below and must be postmarked by May 18th. A winner will be selected during the first week of June.
Last year's winner Lorna Christopherson of Salem, Oregon completed the ride in 49th place.
