Skijöring!

So I thought I had been having a cool time skating, but look at what my friend Jacky and her Lippizaner mare have been up to!  😀

Wow! The horse looks like she’s enjoying the fun as much as Jacky!

That was awesome!

When can we expect a video of you and the Tarq attempting this??

It looks great fun!
And you’ll have to wait ten years or so before you’re going to see me and Tarq doing that. 😀

Looks like they were both enjoying that activity. If we could get that much snow, I think I Carter would do fine with that. Well maybe not. I am the only one who is willing to do this yet I am pregnant. Next year.

Sleigh? Who needs a sleigh? 😉 I guess if she wanted passengers as company — but they could hang on to her back like some kind of wintry conga line.

LLLOOOLLLLL! Who thought that up?? That’s a well trained horse, and a very flat field!

wildstorm, Yes, you better be careful right now!
I might try it with the Tarq when we have another cold spell, but i don’t have any skis!

Rhonda, I would happily be a passenger! I trust Primavera completely! She is a lovely mare 🙂

intxpatr, the whole of the Netherlands is that flat! If we ever see a bump anywhere we go like: ”Oooohh! We are in another country! Mountains!”
Skijöring is a real sport! Some people do it with dogs. They even have race meetings on frozen lakes with real race-horses!

Aafke–thanks for the clarification and the reference, I thought this was something you and your friends had made up (my Norwegian is even worse than my Dutch)

entxpatr–I can attest to the beauty and flatness of the Dutch countryside. Hey even I could handle the cross country ski moguls there, and biking is great.
