Ski Joring and Crystal Carnival
Ski joring , which entails a horse and rider pulling a skier down a snow-packed road over jumps while spearing rings in a timed competition, has been an annual event in Leadville since 1949. This captivating winter sport is as much fun to watch as it is to participate in!
Events include three classes: the Open Class, for experienced competitive teams; the Sport Class, for beginners; and the Legends Class, for experienced teams who are getting a little long in the tooth for the Open Class. Teams must prequalify the day of the event to compete in the Open Class. The event draws teams from all over the country. In years past, there have been as many as 64 teams competing in the Open Class.
The competitions take place the first weekend in March, and are accompanied by a Crystal Carnival winter festival, with activities for the whole family. Please note, this is a dog-free event. Plan your trip soon!
History of Ski Joring
The sport of ski joring began several hundred years ago in Scandinavian countries as a way to travel during the long winters. Laplanders skied on Nordic skis holding the reins attached to reindeer. Ski joring found its way to North America, where ranchers attached a long rope to the saddle horn of a horse that was ridden at high speeds down a long straight-away. Currently, the sport of equestrian ski joring has become a highly specialized competitive sport, where competitors must navigate a course of jumps, gates and sometimes spear rings. Competitive ski joring competitions are currently taking place in more than five states in the USA, and in several countries worldwide. In some parts of the world, skiers are pulled behind dogs, mules and snowmobiles. Whatever the means, the sport of ski joring is growing rapidly, and is just as much fun for spectators as it is for competitors. Courtesy of the North American Ski Joring Association.

4. Skijoring - Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia
The Leadville version is normally spelled as two words Ski Joring . A horse and rider pull a skier at a fast pace through a course that has gates, jumps and rings.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search Skijor Racing with dogs Skijoring with horses; some variants include slalom gates and jumps. Skijoring ('skē-jȯr-iŋ) is a winter sport where a person on skis is pulled by a horse , a dog (or dogs) or a motor vehicle. It is derived from the Norwegian word skikjøring meaning ski driving.
  • Dog skijoring
    edit Dog skijoring
    Skijoring with a dog is a sport in which a dog (or dogs), assist a cross-country skier. From one to three dogs are commonly used. The cross-country skier provides power with skis and poles, and the dog adds additional power by running and pulling. The skier wears a skijoring harness, the dog wears a sled dog harness, and the two are connected by a length of rope. There are no reins or other signaling devices to control the dog: The dog must be motivated by its own desire to run, and respond to the owner's voice for direction. Many breeds of dog participate in skijoring. The only prerequisite is a desire to run down a trail and pull, which is innate in many dogs. Small dogs (less than 35 pounds) are rarely seen skijoring, because they do not greatly assist the skier; however, since the skier can provide as much power as is required to travel, any enthusiastic dog can participate. Athletic dogs such as Pointers, Setters and herding breeds take to skijoring with glee, as do the northern breeds, such as Siberian and Alaskan Huskies Malamutes Samoyeds , and Inuit dogs ; however, any energetic dog is capable of enjoying this sport. Golden Retrievers, Giant Schnauzers, Labs, and many cross-breeds are seen in harness. Pulling breeds work well also such as American Bull Terriers, Staffordshire Terriers, American bull dogs, and mastiffs.

Ski Joring at Winter Carnival in Whitefish, Montana. The Whitefish Winter Carnival has been one of the longest running annual winter events in the nation.
Ski Joring at Winter Carnival in Whitefish, Montana The Whitefish Winter Carnival has been one of the longest running annual winter events in the nation. Starting in the early fifties the Winter Carnival has had many events that has been a tradition and has carried on through the years. Ski Joring was one of those traditional events. Due to insurance issues and lack of financial help, Ski Joring was dropped from the list of carnival events.
NOW! Through the help of some old time Whitefish residents, the Whitefish Winter Carnival Committee, and sponsorship from local and national companies and organizations, we may start a new tradition that will draw Ski Joring enthusiasts from throughout the West. We need your help! With the development of the North American Ski Joring Association you have given us an avenue to achieve a first class Ski Joring event. We would like to be included in the association and be put on the Ski Joring schedule for this year. The Whitefish Winter Carnival builds for three weeks and culminates with a huge parade, ski events and games. We hope that this will be a new tradition in Whitefish and a yearly event for the North American Ski Joring Assn. Schedule under Map below FRIDAY, Feb. 7th, 2003

What is Ski ask?
Ski Joring is a competition where a horse and rider pull a skier at a fast pace through a course that has gates, jumps and rings. The skier is timed through the course, and penalties are assessed by missing gates or jumps, and by missing or dropping any of the rings. The competitors race for cash prizes, and teams are made up by a randon draw before the start. The Leadville Ski Joring event has been going on in Leadville since 1949, and is one of the premier events of its kind in the country. Ski Joring is always the first full weekend in March, and it is a good idea to book your room well in advance if you are planning on coming to either participate or spectate as the available rooms fill up fast. Start planning for March 5th and 6th in 2011!

Its WINTER FUNWESTERN STYLE , and were hoping that you will join us! 2010 RACE RESULTS! WHAT IS SKI-JORING? Originating in the Scandinavian countries as a form of winter transportation. The west has transformed this into an action packed competition wherein teams of horse, rider and skier negotiate a 700+ foot course, the horse and rider taking a track to the inside of the course while the skier in tow, negotiates the 20-some slalom gates and four jumps in hopes of completing two fast, clean runs. That isnt so easy at speeds sometimes topping 25 mph. Awards go to the fastest combined times for the two day event as well as fastest times each day. There is a separate longest jump competition wherein the rider and horse pull their skier over one jump for the longest distance each day. Distances have exceeded 60 feet. Horse accommodations available at Crabtree Stables - 406-698-5122 or Aspen Ridge Equine Center - Roxanne 406-425-1000.
