We’ve had great snowfall this winter to partake in many wonderful sports! One of the more esoteric winter sports we've come across is skijoring. The dog (or horse) wears a harness and is connected by a length of rope to a person on skis. Dogs over 40 pounds with a good pulling instinct are recommended. I recently photographed my friend Linda Thoma and her standard poodle Lucy skijoring on Colchester Pond. It was the quintessential bright sunny Vermont day! Linda was wearing her red Patagonia jacket from the 90’s – made to last and still lookin' good!
Lucy loves it and she loves Linda!
Here are some links to skijoring experts in Vermont if you are inspired to try this yourself:
