World Skijoring Championship-Whitefish Montana

Yesterday we went to see the World Skijoring Championship in Whitefish, Montana.

Kinsey used to skijor with Lakota. She likened it to hooking herself up to an unguided missile. Skijoring, for those unfamiliar with the term, is the practice of slapping on your skis and hooking yourself up to a speedy animal.

The Whitefish Skijoring Championship uses horses for their tow vehicle. These guys go very fast. Faster than Lakota ever could towing you know who. Plus there is a course the skier must hit and jumps he/she must take. It really is fun to watch. If you ever find yourself in Whitefish this time of year you will want to check it out. You'll enjoy the blend of cowboys and skiers. It really is a Montana kind of event.

Below are some photos Kinsey took of the event.
