Guide bio

Clydea Hastie, an adventure horseback guide with Windwalker Expeditions has well over 10,000 competitive endurance miles.  As of today she has completed 30+ 100 mile races and has numerous Tevis Cup finishes.

The Western States Trail Ride, popularly called the Tevis Cup Ride, is the oldest modern day endurance ride , having been held annually since 1955. As such, it has been the inspiration and model for the most challenging endurance rides worldwide.

Each rider who completes the 100 mile course from Tahoe to Auburn within the 24 hour limit and whose mount (aka horse) is judged "fit to continue" is awarded the coveted silver Completion Award Buckle.  Clydea has over 10 of these buckles and her last was earned with a 6th place finish in the 2011 Tevis Cup of more than 170 riders.

Clydea's "can do" attitude and horse expertise, is invaluable and inspirational to us all.
