Re: [RC] [RC] Tevis - Ranelle Rubin


That would be awesome if even 10% of the public had an interest! As you probably have experienced, most people look at us as coming straight from Mars when we say we want to ride a horse over the Sierras 100 miles! I can get most people excited about just about any new idea, but endurance riding is a whole different animal unless you already have "the virus"..:)

I guess I pictured them being somewhat creative in showing the a variety of
the day....not live, but an edited show.......some footage of people getting
ready in the morning...some interviews...the start, some shots on the trail
here and there...cougar rock shots...the bridge or river crossings...a few
of the winners coming across the finish line, and even some footage of the
awards, dinner, camping meals, and a few interviews at the end. Id think
that would be very interesting for anyone who loves horses...not a camera
set up in one place all day...that would not work. LOL

Is Tevis televised? If not, why? Id think the local news would be interested

The local news *might* give it 15 seconds of coverage....maybe..."There's a
100 mile horse race happening from Lake Tahoe to Auburn this weekend" will
be about the extent of it. I can't even imagine them sending a crew to
Cougar Rock or Swinging Bridge - with the hike it would take them the better
part of the day and then they wouldn't be available for "breaking news" like
Paris Hilton getting a speeding ticket ;-p

The best local media coverage will be in the Auburn Journal.  It generally
has interesting stories like this one:
