It's been snowing heavily all day, but that doesn't stop us intrepid adventurers from practice skijoring! We're still in the process of finding some cheap skis off of craigslist, so the most we can do is tow rope work.
I pulled Brego out of the pasture. Even though it is snowing, it's a relatively warm 18 degrees F (-7.8 C). After the last few days of -10 F (-23 C), this feels like a heat wave. The horses were happy to ditch the blankets and hoods, if only for a few hours. We went for a short trail ride and then got down to business.
So there ya go, once again the horse calls me a liar and comes out a star. The next step is to get some skis and ski around the pasture so he can watch. I don't think he's ever seen a human on skis and that might rock his world. Baby steps, but I am excited with the progress.
But first, this afternoon, we're hitting the slopes. I am going to rent skis and make a fool of myself, but it's all in the name of skijoring practice!!
