Skijoring is is a winter sport in which a person on skis is pulled by a horse, a dog (or dogs), or a motor vehicle.

According to Wikipedia the word "Skijoring" is derived from the Norwegian word skikjøring, meaning "ski driving".

Some of you may already be familiar with this sport because of the annual Skijoring Races that are part of the Sheridan Winter Rodeo.

It takes lot's of time training with your animal to get your Skijoring skills up to competition level.

Hopefully, they share another video.

I'll make sure to let you know if she posts one ;)
