Holiday greetings from the Western States Trail Foundation Board of Governors!

Congratulations to all of you who finished the Virtual Tevis. I was at No Hands Bridge and my horse went lame. Oh well, it was so popular that riders want us to do it again. That may happen.jeff

There is never any dispute that the Western States Trail Ride, commonly known as the Tevis Cup, is the granddaddy of all endurance rides.  We are the top-ranking US 100-mile event in nearly everything:  Total years running, number of entrants, number of finishers, and… cost to start.  With an annual entry fee of $400 – many riders may wonder, where do my entry fee dollars go?
