Combine Horseback Riding and Skiing and You Get Skijoring in Hailey Idaho
What happens when you combine two of Idaho's popular sports of horseback riding and skiing? You get Skijoring. And it is awesome!
I don't want to oversimplify the sport becuase it obviously takes a lot of skill on both the rider and the skier but skijoring is basically a skier being pulled by a horse (or in some cases dogs) through the snow.
Wood River Extreme Skijoring Association is hosting their 2017 races on February 18 & 19 at Quigley Canyon, adjacent to the Wooder River High School Ball field in Hailey, Idaho.
This family friendly event will feature food booths, music, an auction and a dance at The Silver Dollar Saloon. Tailgaters are welcome! There is a gate fee of $5 per person. Kids 10 and under are free.
