Last month for the Endurance Capital of the World, runners near and far conquered Western States 100. This month, it’s Tevis Cup’s turn to take to the Western States trail.

Around 200 horses and riders will take on the 100-mile race from Truckee to Auburn. Last year, the weather was cool with a bit a of rain and 56 percent of entrants finished the race. That’s about typical, generally 50 percent will finish the race.

It begins at Robie Equestrian park at 7,000 feet elevation south of Truckee goes through rugged miles of ascending and descending before reaching Old Town Auburn.

“Due to the remoteness and inaccessibility of the trail, the Tevis Cup Ride differs substantially from other organized endurance riding events,” said the Tevis Cup website. “Adequate physical training and preparation for both horse and rider are of the utmost importance. The mountains, although beautiful, are relentless in their challenge and unforgiving to the ill-prepared...”

Tevis "Keep Your Dreams Alive" Contest Winner Announced


The Keep Your Dreams Alive Contest winner is, drum roll please,.... Terrie LaPorte of Delta, British Columbia!

Her story tugs at the heartstrings of any horse lover. After the sudden and tragic loss of her first Tevis prospect, Terrie acquired Magnum El Shah and worried it was a mistake. He was a very challenging horse. She explained that it took two years for horse and rider to form the strong bond they have today.

Now at 67 years young, she and her horse Magnum have completed nine endurance rides and earned seven top ten finishes in 2018 alone She is thrilled to have won and sees this as "a sign to continue doing my best, being a good teammate to Magnum and smiling all the way as I do my thing, living the dream."

Congratulations to this Canadian and the best of luck on July 28!

Marion Inez (Robie) Arnold Passes Away


Marion Inez (Robie) Arnold

Marion Inez (Robie) Arnold, age 72, of Newcastle, California passed away peacefully in the early hours of Friday, June 15, 2018. Marion was a noted horsewoman and pioneer in the sport of endurance riding.

Services will be held at Chapel of the Hills in Auburn on Saturday, June 23, 2018, at 10 a.m. Burial, with military honors, will immediately follow at the New Auburn Cemetery. Visitation will take place just before the services at Chapel of the Hills.

Marion was born on August 8, 1945 to John and Elizabeth (Kangas) Robie in Sacramento.

Marion is survived by her loving son, Wendell C. Arnold of Newark, Calif, her beloved grandchildren Emma, Lilla, and Samuel Arnold, her devoted sisters Wendy Robie of Chicago, and Marcie Chester of Lithia, Fla, her loving nephew Xo Larimer of Berkeley, Calif, cousin Suann Stone of Tahoe, Calif, and many lifelong friends.

Inspired by her grandfather, Wendell T. Robie, Marion learned to ride before she could walk. Arabian horses, trail riding and endurance racing became her life's passions. In 1958, at the age of 12, Marion finished the (now) historic 100-Miles-One-Day Western States Trail Ride (colloquially called the Tevis Cup) that was founded by her grandfather. She would go on to finish the ride 10 more times, winning in 1969. Her eleventh and final completion was in 1994 with her son. Shortly after her final Western States Trail Ride, she transitioned to NATRC where she rode and worked tirelessly. She will especially be remembered for a NATRC event that she co-chaired out of Robie Park in Truckee. She was one of the founding members of the American Endurance Ride Conference (AERC) and was elected to their Hall of Fame in 1982. She was also a founding member, and former president, of the Wendell and Inez Robie Foundation.

After graduating from Placer High School, class of 1963, as a National Merit Scholar, Marion attended Wellesley College and California State University Hayward, graduating with a major in mathematics, teaching math shortly thereafter. Marion enlisted in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War and cared for newborns at the base hospital at Travis Air Force Base.

Marion's family is very proud of her military service. But it was in promoting and celebrating endurance riding and conserving the historic emigrant trails of the High Sierra mountains where she made her mark. Marion will be sorely missed by all who love the mountains and who know we love them best from atop a horse.

Jeremy Reynolds and Treasured Moments Win 2017 Haggin Cup

August 6 2017
by Merri Melde-Endurance.net

Third place Tevis Cup finisher Jeremy Reynolds and the Reynolds' 7-year-old Arabian mare Treasured Moments have won the 2017 Haggin Cup award, the horse in "most superior physical condition" of yesterday's Top Ten Tevis finishers. The pair finished 1 hour 9 minutes behind the winners, Tennessee Lane and Auli Farwa.

Treasured Moments, by DA Adios X Hidden Treasure, by RD Five Star, has an 11 for 11 AERC finish record. This was her first 100 mile ride. Jeremy is a 3-time Tevis Cup and now 3-time Haggin Cup winner.

Auli Farwa and Tennessee Lane Win 2017 Tevis Cup

Auli Farwa: 8th Tevis Buckle, 74th Completion, Zero Pulls

August 6 2017
by Merri Melde-Endurance.net

The amazing endurance horse Auli Farwa completed the Tevis Cup for the 8th time yesterday, finishing his 74th ride without a pull. Ridden by Tennessee Lane, of La Veta, Colorado, the pair crossed the finish line at McCann Stadium at the Auburn (California) Fairgrounds at 10 PM, in first place.

The race was a close, exciting one from Foresthill (68 miles) on, with Lindsay Graham and Monk leaving that hour hold 3 minutes ahead of Tennessee and "Far." Jeremy Reynolds and Treasured Moments, and Heather Reynolds and Grand Ku were close to the leading pair at this point, having moved steadily forward all day, but the 20 minute gap got bigger the rest of the race. Jeremy/Treasure Moments would finish 3rd at 11:09, and Heather/Grand Ku were pulled at Francisco's at 85 miles for lameness.

Tennessee and Far left the last checkpoint, the Lower Quarry at 94 miles, two minutes ahead of Lindsay and Monk, and ultimately arrived at the finish line 12 minutes ahead of Lindsay and Monk.

It was Tennessee's first endurance ride on Far. Over his 4500 miles and 11 seasons of endurance, the now-17-year-old gelding has carried 4 riders to the Tevis finish line: Kevin Myers in 2009. 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014; Jenni Smith in 2015; Rusty Toth in 2016, and Tennessee this year. 4 of those were Top Ten finishes, and all but 1 were in the top 15. Far won the Haggin Cup in 2015 with Jenni Smith.

Now owned by Rusty Toth, Far was previously owned by Kevin Myers, who took his life last year. This year's Tevis was a sweet win for all of us who remember and miss Kevin.
