Skijor’s coming to town.

Do we even need to question the appeal of a sport that combines galloping horses, packed powder, and fast skiing? Let’s face it, this is Montana—home to eight-month winters, cowboys, and powder junkies—and skijoring is simply a natural evolution. In fact, skijor hails from Scandinavian roots, originally developed as a means of travel but has now been adapted as a sport where a skier is hauled around a designed course, navigating jumps, gates, and rings as fast as possible. It may be more commonly recognized with dogs ahead, but equine skijoring is gaining new speed in Bozeman—thanks to a local nonprofit.
