Not everyone has heard of this wild west sport, but based on the crowds at the Lincoln Rodeo grounds in the middle of January 2018, it's a popular and growing wintertime activity for both participants and spectators.
It's a competition among men and women on snow skis being pulled by horses and riders.
Skijoring has been around for decades, but it's been taking root in recent years, with an international governing body and at least nine sanctioned events in 2019 in the Northern Rockies alone, starting the last weekend of 2018 in Kalispell.
The Lincoln event is tentatively scheduled for January 19 - 20, 2018 at the rodeo grounds two miles west of Lincoln on the north side of Montana 200. The show in Lincoln is preamble to the World Invitational meet the following weekend in Whitefish.
