Ski Joring over a jump  Ski Joring Collecting Rings

 Myhre Equine Complex
100 Ten Rod Road Rochester NH


Ski Joring is a fast growing family friendly sport. Tack up and clip into your skis or snowboard for this family-and-friends sport. You will find races held in both the United States and Canada. The courses range from straight, to J-hook, to horseshoe shape. They consist of cones to weave around, jousting rings to spear through with your arm, and 3 jumps for the skier to negotiate. The course is timed with a time penalty for missed obstacles. The different divisions enable you to take this sport from a youngster just starting out on skis to the extreme skier with the need for speed. Register for our Clinic and learn how it’s done. Skiers will learn from a professional ski instructor how to dally their ropes and effectively maneuver the course. Riders will bring their horses and work with trainers teaching the horses to accept a skier. The Riders will also learn how to set their skiers up for pending obstacles. If you need a skier or a rider, we will match you with one or more at the clinic. So, if you enjoy the cheer of encouragement from a crowd of spectators, and you enjoy fun in the snow, come join us!

Hot food and drinks will be available. All proceeds will benefit Dover High School CTC Equine Program.

Space is limited preregister to ensure your spot.
