In the international sport of endurance riding, the pinnacle of United States competition is known as the Tevis Cup. The Tevis ride is especially grueling due to the altitude and terrain. Riders and their mounts pace themselves to trek 100 miles within 24 hours in temps that range from below 50, to over 120 degrees Fahrenheit. There is probably no name more recognized to fellow endurance riders than Boyd Zontelli. Zontelli was the first rider to win Tevis 3 times and holds the world record to this day.
