Virtual Tevis 2024

VG Ben Jovi and Karen at Rides of March 2024I am planning on entering the Virtual Tevis again. I am still deciding on if I want to do it with more than one horse. The first year I did it I spent most of the 100 miles handwalking Jovi. It turned out to be fabulous for his training and went a long way towards making him a safe and reliable and pretty trustworthy mount. The second time my goal was to ride him the entire 100 miles. I think it would be a great goal for me to sign up with Saint and/or Cowboy to help get them brought along.

For those that don’t know what the VT is, here is a description along with a link if you’d like to sign up:

The Virtual Tevis 100 mile event offers a number of benefits beyond just completing a  100-mile course:


  • Open to all: Whether you ride a horse or not, the virtual event has separate riding and non-riding divisions You can run, walk, hike, bike, or even swim to complete the miles, making it achievable for a wider range of participants.


  • 100 days to finish: Unlike the traditional Tevis Cup’s grueling one-day ride, the virtual event offers a much more forgiving timeframe. You have 100 days to spread out the 100 miles, allowing you to participate at your own pace and fit it into your schedule.

Community and cause:

  • Comradery: You’ll still be part of a community event. As you track your miles, you’ll receive updates on your virtual location along the actual Western States Trail, keeping you connected to the experience.
  • Support the Trail: The Virtual Tevis Cup is a fundraiser for the Western States Trail Foundation, helping to maintain this historic trail for future generations.

Additional perks:

  • Completion swag: Upon finishing the virtual distance, you’ll receive a commemorative shirt and medal, a badge of honor for your accomplishment.

So, if you’re looking for a challenge you can complete on your own terms, all while supporting a good cause and becoming part of the Tevis Cup community, the Virtual Tevis 100 might be a great fit for you.
