Tevis Completion Breeds?

I was just wondering whether ya'll know of any breeds- besides Arabs, obviously- that have completed the Tevis. If you could list as many as you can... that'd be great. ;)

Here's a list of the horses that competed in the 2011 Tevis Cup. Breeds are listed as well.

I see Arab Crosses, Saddlebred, Kentucky Mt (?), Mustang, National Show Horse, Appaloosa, Mule, Friesian cross, Foxtrotter, etc!

Can also add Paso Fino to that list. Plus countless "grade" horses that could have been some of anything and everything!

But the question was breeds that completed.
The Paso Fino was pulled out (DNF - did not finish) so it didn't complete the Tevis Cup

There's usually somewhere between 33-50% (or more.....varies every year) of the horses that that start the race don't finish it.
By far the most common reason is they fail a vet check and get pulled.
Then there are times when the rider will turn back or stop because they don't feel their horse should continue.
And of course a horse can die in an accident, but that's the least common reason for not finishing and doesn't often happen.

I don't know about 2011, but I met a lady at the Hat Creek Hustle in June who was riding a Paso who said her horse was the first Paso to complete Tevis. No idea what year and if he was the only one, but at least that one had.

Just got my magazine,
Tevis Cup,
123 finishers, 112 of them Arabians, or arabian crosses. Of the remaining 11 2 mustangs, a mule and a friesian cross could also have been half arabian,
COngradulations to Shannon Constantini for her top 10 (10th) on a Saddlebred. 11th went to a Ky Mountain horse.

54 DNF's 51 arabians, TWH, Paso fino and a mustang in the dnf mix. The walker made it 64 miles.
