I think I would need to work on it with my horses. The two candidates are a bit difficult and I definitely would not just strap myself to them. Especially since my driving horse has barely any "whoa". Plus Wisconsin has been grumpy and not giving us any snow!

But we get no snow over here, and trying it on the roads would hurt a lot if you fell off... :(

Well since I almost kill myself skiing without a horse...I will continue to dream about this, no trying. It's always been fun to watch though. Awesome pics!

Butt, have your driving horse pull you thro loose snow. That will put a better whoa on him. They tire fairly quickly pulling a skiier or snowboarder than when pulling a cart.

I was enjoying videos of this on YouYube the other week. It looked as if the skiiers held the rope, as a waterskiier would do, rather than tying into a climbing harness. That way, if you fall or the horse spooks or whatever, you can just let go.

You have no idea how badly I want to do this. And go figure - we've gotten hardly any snow this year. Mudjoring, maybe.

I've got a lovely bunch of Neuticals,
There they are all standing in a row

Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head
