Donor program offers tickets for January 12 event at State Theater in Auburn, featuring Unbranded documentary film-maker.
The Western States Trail Foundation and Tevis Cup (Official) - 100 Mile One Day Western States Trail Ride consider education of future generations an integral part of the preservation, promotion and stewardship of trails, horsemanship and the sport of endurance.
As part that stewardship, Western States Board of Governors member Shellie Hatfield, has organized a scholarship program in which donors purchase tickets to donate to young horse enthusiasts.
"We use scholarship programs like this as a means of crossing borders," said Hatfield, who is also Treasurer of WSTF and its Fundraising Committee Chair.
"Tevis Talks in particular exposes kids across all disciplines to the sport of endurance, but also to our foremost cause, which is the trails. We want to show them the importance of developing a sense of passion for their interests, but also a sense of responsibility."
Masters, an ardent advocate for both the American Mustang and open space preservation, will discuss the making of his award-winning film, which National Geographic has named one of its top adventure movies of the year.
To obtain scholarship tickets to this event, contact Hatfield at Shellie@ValleyFinance.com.
All proceeds benefit WSTF.
