Tevis From the Back of My Horse - Sharma Gaponoff

Tevis From the Back of My Horse

by Sharma Gaponoff

The Tevis Cup Ride is the most challenging 100-mile equestrian endurance event in the world. With names like Dusty Corners, Last Chance, Devil’s Thumb and Deadwood, the historic Tevis Trail, originally used by Native American Indians and pioneers, passes through historic gold-mining camps and towns along its 100 miles. Beginning at Robie Park in the beautiful Lake Tahoe area of Northern California and riding through the Gold Country that made this state famous, successful competitors cross the finish line in the historic town of Auburn. Those who complete the ride will have ridden a total of nearly 24,000 feet of downhill and close to 18,000 feet of uphill in elevation changes along the 100 miles of this rugged and scenic Sierra Nevada Mountain trail. Ride along with Sharma and her horse Tahoe as they tackle the granddaddy event in the sport of modern endurance riding. Experience the journey along with these two tenacious souls and their “supporting cast of characters.”
