Ski Joëring

ÉtéHiver

Only during the winter

ON RESERVATION FROM SUNDAY TO FRIDAY

Ski Joëring (a term derived from the Swedish Skijöring and the Norwegian Skikjøring) is a sporting discipline combining skiing and an equestrian team. The origins of Ski Joëring date back to 2500 BC, when the first traces are found in Sweden, Ski Joëring was only a means of transport at the time. It was a technique the locals used to travel from farm to farm but instead of using horses like we do today, they used reindeer. The harnessed horse or pony pulls the skier behind it, through the use of a harness and frame. It is enough to have the 1st star level in skiing, the supervisors will take care of the rest to make you discover this sliding sport combined with animal traction. A baptism in pairs on the snow-covered quarry will allow you to master the 3 paces. You are autonomous, the real initiation begins: on the way to a secure and exotic route, we take you off the beaten track through snow-covered forests, in the heart of nature.

First ski-joering: 30 minutes in the arena (2 skiers per horse) 40€

Ski-joering initiation: 1 hour (arena + outdoor course: 1 skier per horse) 65€

Equipe yourself with your ski equipment: suitable jacket and pants, ski boots, gloves, helmet and especially your skis (these must not exceed 1.50m so as not to hamper and injure the horse).
