Ski-Joring {Leadville}

Today we went over to Leadville, which is about 30 miles from us over Fremont Pass.  They were having their annual ski-joring contests this weekend.  If you are unsure of what ski-joring is…just check out my pictures.  Basically, skiers hold on to a rope and ski behind a sprinting horse, while attempting to go over huge jumps and catch rings along the way.  I. Was. In. Awe.  It was so cool.  There really couldn’t be a more fitting event in Colorado.  Horses, cowboys and cowgirls, and skiing. 


This volunteer was retrieving a lost cowboy hat…

Another beautiful Colorado day.  50 degrees, blue skies and ski-joring.
