The Board of Govenors for the Western States Trail Foundation would like share our appreciation for the members and volunteers that have contributed so much of themselves to the trail and the ride. In recognition of them, we are highlighting two of the awards that have been instituted.
The Tevis Educational Ride is the weekend July 3-5. Swing by the mill site in Foresthill if your in town.
Western artist Chuck Centers has created a unique painting honoring the Tevis Cup endurance ride. The painting is of a horse’s head, but hidden within are several things unique to the Tevis Cup ride. How many can you find?
Chuck has generously donated the rights to this unique piece of art to the Western States Trail Foundation. We will give a canvas print that has been hand embellished by the artist to the Signature riders for 2015.
|Chuck Centers spends his days riding horses and painting whether he is at home in Sacramento or his second home in Taos, New Mexico. It's a serene existence, afforded by a successful and varied career path to retirement. Read more|

Help preserve the historic Western States Trail
A primary mission of the Western States Trail Foundation is to preserve the historic route taken by Paiute and Washoe Indians, Gold Rush explorers, Comstock hopefuls, and Express Riders of the Wells Fargo and Adams Express Companies. Today this route provides us with rewards of exploration, challenge, accomplishment, wilderness, nature and a bolstering of spirit for horsemen, hikers and runners alike.
In 1996 the Board of Governors of the Western States Trail Foundation determined the need to establish a permanent endowment fund to insure future funding of maintenance and improvements to the Western States Trail. Please take a moment to read our 2014 endowment brochure and please give what you can to help preserve the Western States Trail.
