    Watch this give some of the Englishers the idea to try with a car..
    But it looks fun..I was never one to learn to ski, this looks a bit
    safer than going down a mountain..

      skiing

      skiing while drawn by horse has been known as skijouring. It has been done for over 100 years.

        Skijouring

        Interesting name, I saw it refers to dogs pulling skiers as well.

      Skiing behind a buggy

      Oh, don’t worry Alberta, idiots have been doing this with skateboards behind cars for years. I’m a police officer and it doesn’t matter what the weather or the vehicle, idiots will be idiots. It seems safe, but it only takes one wrong move going 15 mph to land you in tragedy. Public roads aren’t meant for play, especially now with more traffic, drunk drivers, and kids who are mean and would LOVE to cause a horse to bolt.

    However, IT is a at your own risk situation…

      Yes, as Kiki suggested above, risk involved. Seems like a pretty busy road, if you’re going to do it probably smarter on backroads like the guys in the Ohio video look to be.

    It’s not something I’d try today (age 64 with 3 spinal surgeries, one knee replacement and a rotator cuff surgery in the past 17 years), but I might have tried it at one point—as long as the horse & I were on good terms—even moreso than the driver & I!

    Hoping the fun lasts and there are no injuries…fingers crossed!

    Thanks for the smile (I needed it badly, today!)

    I thought that the Lowville settlement was founded by Amish from Lancaster County and its daughter settlement Path Valley, but the buggy in the video looks black, rather than grey.

    I've seen this before!

    We witnessed some kids doing this last winter, while driving home in central MN, going by the Wadena Count settlement. I was so amazed, I’d never seen anything like it. It actually looks pretty fun!

    I’m a semi related note, our Amish neighbors recently brought us some Christmas goodies, but we were not home so they wrote a big message in the snow that they’d left us something in the garage. I thought it was pretty creative! :)
