‘Extreme’ Horse-Powered Ski Jumping Coming To Minnesota In February
Have you ever gone skiing and thought to yourself 'yeah, this is fun but what I'd really love is to be towed behind a big horse, who would send me flying off massive jumps?' Well, friend, I have good news for you!
Canterbury Park in Shakopee is hosting the sixth edition of its 'Extreme Horse Skijoring' event on February 24th and 25th.
The event will feature horses pulling skiers and snowboarders to launch off of a 15 foot snow jump and across a 20 foot gap while doing flips and tricks.
In addition to the skijoring, other activities wil include dog sled races, corgi and wiener dog races, a vendor market place, bonfires, ice bars and more. In addition, dog sled rides will be available on the first day of the event.
Glide through a winter wonderland, as the dog sleds whisk you away on an unforgettable ride. Don't forget to meet and greet your furry tour guides - the huskies, as well as capture some picture perfect family photos!
