It is a unique combination of the Wild West and extreme alpine snow skiing. Cowboys saddle up, skiers buckle in and grab a hold of a 33 foot rope and hold on for dear life as Cowboy and Horse run full speed down an 800 foot course complete with jumps, gates and jousting rings to maneuver around all while traveling at speeds of around 40 mph and dodging ice and snow thrown up from the horse’s feet.
Join us in February on the 9th and 10th at Parlin Field Airport, Newport, NH for a nationally sanctioned ski joring event.
