Today we’re talking Skijoring, a winter sport I’ve wanted to check off my bucket list for a long time. Last week I got the chance to chat with Sam Mitchell, one of the founders of Skijor Canada and find out more about the sport and the annual event they are hosting on Feb. 3rd at the Calgary Polo Club. It’s a day that promises a lot of fast horses, fashion and fondue, my favourite combo!
Spectator tickets are only $10, with proceeds going to Prairie Sky Assisted Equine Therapy and there’s 3 different divisions to the fashion competition, where you can win $150 gift card to Cody & Sioux. So get those skijor/après ski/western outfits ready!!
And make sure you watch the vblog, there’s a highlight where I come screaming down the field, well not quite- but for this old ski racer it definitely gave me an adrenaline rush- I might be hooked!
