Extractions: Ski Joring in Montana What is Ski Joring? What You'll Need Where to go in Montana What is Ski Joring? If you're a ski joring enthusiast from way back, you can probably skip this section. But chances are, you're scratching your head in wonder right now, trying to figure out what ski joring is. The easiest way to explain it is: it's a cross between dog sledding and cross country skiing. Or, it's a cross between sleigh riding and cross country skiing. Depending on which animal you prefer, it involves having a dog or horse pull you on cross country skis. (You're on the skis, not the dog or horse.) This activity, like just about any activity involving cross country skis, traces its roots to Scandinavian heritage. But it's gaining popularity in the U.S., with a growing list of clubs and organized competitions such as the National Finals Ski Joring Races in Red Lodge, Montana each March. What You'll Need Let's start with the obvious: A horse will certainly be able to pull you with no problem. When you're ski joring with a single dog, however, the idea isn't to rely on the dog to pull you up mountains. You should think of the dog as a "helper" for your cross country skiing.

Extractions: Before You Try SkiJoring With Your Dog Skijoring is a traditional nordic ski sport that is enjoying a modern resurgence, as the basic sport of cross country skiing has grown in popularity and recreational XC skiers have realized that skiing with canine friends is great exercise for both themselves and their pooch. Before you hit the trails to ski-jor, learn more here about skijoring basics, skijoring equipment and commands. What is SkiJoring? Skijor (ski-jur) is a Norwegian word that means "ski-driving" and the sport of skijoring is a combination of dogsledding and XC skiing. A pulling dog or team of 2 dogs is attached via a harness and bungee cord system similar to those on sled dogs, with a XC skier attached at the other end. Horse skijoring is another form of the sport, but skijoring behind any type of motorized vehicle is NOT safe. What Type of Dog is Good for SkiJoring?
Extractions: The sport ski joring began several hundred years ago in Scandinavian countries, as a way to travel during the long winters. Laplander's skied on Nordic skis holding the reins attached to reindeer. In the mid 1950's, 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 sometime spear rings. Competitive ski joring competitions are currently taking place in over 5 states in the USA, and in several countries worldwide. In some parts of the world, skiers are pulled behind dogs 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. On April 24 th , 1999, directors from almost every major ski joring organization in the Country, rendezvoused in Jackson Hole, Wyoming to begin a process that would change the sport of ski joring forever. After several follow-up meetings, the North American Ski Joring Association (NASJA) was developed. For the first time in history, equestrian ski joring became a sanctioned sport! NASJA was conceived because of a very basic need to consolidate existing ski joring races into a circuit where competitors can earn points that go toward a National Champion Award. By developing criteria that all NASJA sanctioned events abide by, each competitor will have an equal opportunity at becoming the official National Ski Joring Champion.

Extractions: for the Buffalo Bill Ski-Joring Races! Wyoming Ski Joring Association SKI JORING (SKI WHAT?) (joring rhymes with boring; but this event is anything but boring) Ski joring is a fast growing winter sport combining skills of a cowboy and a skier. A skier is towed behind a horse and rider through a course consisting of ski gates and jumps. Speed is required, as it is a timed event, with penalties for gates and jumps missed by the skier. The Association is now looking for members. Anyone who has an interest in learning about or competing in the event, or who just wants to get out of the house during the long winter months, is welcome.

Extractions: For the week of February 12-18, 2003 Ski joring nationals come to Hailey Saturday and Sunday Smokey Mountain Ski Joring Association organizers had already planned to hold a weekend race event in Hailey on the weekend of Feb. 15-16. Now the winter event that matches horses with skiers and boarders is bigger and better than anticipated. On Feb. 3, the North American Ski Joring Association notified local organizers that due to race cancellations nationally, the Feb. 15-16 Hailey event had been chosen as the official 2003 North American Ski Joring Championship. The course will be set up at the Wood River BMX track three miles west of Hailey. Smokey Mountain director Kurtis Stutz of Hailey and Fairfield said his group welcomed the big event with open arms. "This is a perfect opportunity to show the national circuit that we are capable of holding a championship-level race in the Wood River Valley." This weekends event will benefit Rotarun Ski Area and Wood River BMX. Admission for spectators is $3 adults, free for kids under 12.
Maine - Dog Sledding & Ski Joring Dog Sledding SkiJoring. For a list of commercial mushers and guides offeringdog sledding and ski-joring trips, please see the below links. SOUTH COAST. http://www.etravelmaine.com/recreation/sledding/dog.html
Extractions: I f you want to participate in the sport of dog sledding, the winter outdoorsperson must first locate a musher who offers trips to the public. While not readily abundant, there are commercial mushers scattered throughout the Maine snow country. Six to eight dog teams pull the musher, rider, and all appropriate gear needed for the trip. Each participant must do his or her part in getting the team ready to go, as well as lending a helping hand at the finish. Trips are ordinarily a half day or several nights out on the trail. All of the effort is quickly rewarded when the dogs lean into their harnesses and the musher yells the anticipated command "Let's go"! Ski-joring, a sport where one or several dogs pull a skier, can make for an exhilarating cross country ski ride through the northwoods landscape. The dogs wear a typical dog sled harness, while the skier wears a special belt with a line incorporating an expandable bungy. The line is secured to the belt by a quick release mechanism necessary for safety purposes. Although getting started and stopping can be challenging, lots of practice will make this activity a favorite winter experience for the cross country skier and dog owner. Unfortunately, appropriate spots for ski-joring are scarce in that cross country ski centers usually prohibit dogs and snowmobile trails are simply too dangerous.
