AUBURN...Endurance Capital of the World
A town like Auburn. . . a man like Robie
(tell you what I know)
They met and meshed like fitted gloves and to the world did show
That distance riding earned its place
with horse and rider teams
As Wendell forecast from the start–
winners finish sound it seems.
The hundred miles of mountain trail
the heat, the dust, the sweat
That horse and rider tolerate
hones horsemanship, you bet!
To honor pioneering names
with the Tevis and Haggin Cup
The ride has kept alive their spirit
and Wendell Robie measured up!
For those of you who train for this
the ultimate hundred mile test
We take much pride in what you do
make a solemn last request;
That you will honor by your deeds
along that long, tough trail
Take proper care of faithful horse
and finish sound, never fail.
For horse and rider, just one goal
complete this grueling course
Dedicate both mind and heart
to glorify your trail-wise horse.
And now the hundred miles of trail
that ends in Auburn Town
THE ENDURANCE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD
truly the ride of Grand Renown!!
