Tons of my Tevis Cup photos can be found at http://www.teviscup.org/webcast/main.html

Please keep in mind...they have been not Photoshoped.

Congratulations to all the riders and horses!

I'm exhausted! I only got about 6-8 hours of sleep since Thursday night. I have no idea how the rides and horses do it. Friday night, I got to camp with Melissa and Robert Ribley. Dr. Melissa Ribley makes yummy spaghetti dinner. Thanks! It was my pleasure to help them get
ready for the ride on Saturday morning. Congratulations to Dr. Melissa Ribley's 2nd place win and the Haggin Cup award! WOOHOO!!

Thank you Mickey and Chris for being awesome friends and hosts. Such fun to laugh non stop all weekend. I think the laughing kept us awake. Love those guys.

BTW....I'm hooked on Tevis! I caught the bug! I really enjoyed volunteering at Foresthill at the Leader Board and at Quarry doing P&R's . While at Foresthill Karen Chaton recruited me as a Tevis webcast photographer. <;o]

Endurance is an underated discipline.

My daughter used to compete in local 50 milers. The physical and emotional training of horse and rider can not be beat.

FUN!!!  Some day before I die, I would love to compete in competitive trail riding or endurance riding.. ...However, I'd have to make myself over as well as get a horse into shape.. Plus, both of my girls are gaited and I understand that Arabians or Arabian-crosses are better suited for endurance sports..

Nonsense! There are plenty of gaited horses out there competing in endurance and CTR. Remember, to finish is to win. Try it. Set your own goals and go at your own pace. It's lots of fun and as challenging as you want to make it. Most fit trail horses can do a 25. Get out there and just do it! You will make some new friends and have a great time with your horse. The one thing that is also nice about it is that sometimes get to ride trails you might not otherwise get to ride. And as far as 'making yourself over', there are many sizes and shapes out there doing distance. Go for it.

well now arabians ARE better suited but of course that doesn't mean you can't ride other breeds in endurance events.

I belong to a team in the PNER (Pacific Northwest Endurance Riders) called the Gaiters. Almost every horse is gaited with a few exceptions. My horse is an Arab but most others are Tennessee Walkers, Missouri Fox Trotters, Kentucky Mountain Horse (Raven, who has competed in Tevis several years including this year) a couple Paso Fino's and a few Icelandics too. I have one of the "token Arabs" and we have a Mustang and one Thoroughbred. Two of our team members planned to do Tevis this year, on a Paso and an Arab but both horses ended up with injuries a few months before Tevis so had to cancel that ride. My boyfriend's Tennessee Walker Stallion is currently top in the nation for the Jim Jones Stallion Award, an endurance award for top miles with a stallion.

Anyway, I sometimes ride a Walker and they are really fun on the trail. Most of our team rides 50, a few do the LD (25-30 miles). These horses have no problem going the distance if conditioned properly, which is the case with most horses.

Do you know the details of the horse that died? I believe his rider was leading the horse along a steep trail ledge, and the horse slipped, going over and dying. I hope the horse did not suffer. I heard the rider is O.K.
