Tevis Preparation: Misc. Musings

My Renegade boots and crew shirts for Tevis 2012!

It’s interesting how much more effort it takes to prepare for the Tevis Cup than any other ordinary ride.  The easiest part is getting the horse ready, it seems.  That’s because I’m always riding anyway!  Then there is the paperwork, crew arrangements and all of the other organizing and planning that goes into getting ready for the Tevis.

Most of the rides that I

Tevis Preparation – Crew List for the Finish!

In addition to the following list, I’ll also have a page that includes everybody’s cell phone #’s.  Since I got my entry in so late, all of the stalls were taken.  It’s okay though, as they have a parking area for us to park in that will allow us to keep Bo on the trailer.    Which will make me happier, as I much prefer to be able to keep a close eye on

Tevis Preparation – Foresthill Checklist

Leaving the Foresthill vetcheck in 2010. Karen and Bo.

Foresthill is an easy spot to crew as there is plenty of room to park and it’s easy to get to.  The most important thing here is to get the horse in and cooled down so that you can pulse in and vet through right away.  The pulse criteria is now 64 and will be at that or higher from here to the finish

Tevis Preparation: Robinson’s Flat Checklist

This is my list for Robinson’s Flat, the first vet check on the ride where my crew will be allowed to meet me.  This check is logistically time consuming to get to as you have to drive all of the way back through Auburn to get to it.

This is a really busy and congested check with a lot of traffic on a narrow windy road.  It’s too far to run back and get

Tevis Preparation – Robie Park Checklist

I’ll update this again once I have it finalized.  This is a rough draft and the first part of many lists that I’ll put together for myself and my crew for Tevis.

For those that are not familiar with the Western States Trail Ride aka Tevis; it is a 100 mile one day point to point endurance ride.  That means that logistically, things have to be planned and prepared ahead of time to ensure

Looks like I am going to Tevis this year!

Ughhhh, what can I say – I changed my mind due to certain bad influences whom shall remain nameless.    I had originally been planning on going to Tevis this year.

Heck I was even on a “Tevis” diet with goals to get to a certain weight by August 4th!  I’ve done a pretty good job of dropping the

City of Rocks 2012 – 200 Miles in Idaho!

Just back and finding time to write a bit about the City of Rocks ride in South East Idaho.  The ride also crossed state lines into Utah.

We had a great time and really enjoyed each day of the ride!  I decided at nearly the last minute to go.  I had been hemming and hawing over it for some time as I really wanted to go, but then also was weighing going to do
