Heading Down the Trail, Week 1, Virtual Tevis 2022


Awareness of the outside world. “Donations go towards maintenance and development of the trail and staging areas.” The Tevis Cup > Donate.

Distance: 7.4 miles, both horses.

Activities: Walking in the pasture, a few power walk segments.

Standings: Not last but definitely in the Turtle Power crew. Not dwelling on exact placing. Unlike IRL Tevis, VT is about completing rather than competing. What is of interest on the leaderboard is over 200 entries. The more they have this year, the more likely they are to do it again next year.


On track for 7 miles a week. Need bank to miles for rainy days, muddy days, and when the horses have ‘I have a hangnail, I just can’t cope’ days.

Starting in April rather than August means cooler mornings. Lovely weather, at least for three of us. Rodney thinks anything under 70o is chilly.


Admin note. Virtual Tevis posts are generally on Tuesdays. Made sense to finish up the clinic posts first. Dunno if the post schedule matters to anyone else. Such are the things that keep my world organized, or at least lend me the illusion.
