Anyone done this before? My wife want's to get into it (she gets to ride the horse, I get to ski).Life is a lot like climbing: there isn't anything much more comforting than a good #2.

Do a search at ttips if you haven't already. Skijorer and a few others are big into it and there have been many long threads over there.

I used to do it when I was a kid.
Every so often a chunk flies off the horse's hoof and hits you in the face.
The new wears off pretty fast.

I'll go check out teletips, shoulda searched there first. Doh. Seems kinda dangerous, but if the wife is interested in it it might be fun to dabble in.Life is a lot like climbing: there isn't anything much more comforting than a good #2.

I used to skijor when I was a teenager in Alaska. Super fun, and still a good workout as long as you are skiing with them, not just standing there being pulled. Did the dog version though, not a horse. I'd be scared of the horse stopping and me sliding into its ass or hooves.
Had two husky/mutt mixes that I trained to pull - though really only one would pull (the one that refused to learn directions) and the other would guide (the lazy one that refused to pull but learned directions). The one that pulled though, she damn well PULLED! If I fell over, she'd just keep going, and I'd be dragged through the snow face first for 100 yards before she'd finally stop and look back at me like "get up, dumbass."This touchy-feely Kumbaya shit has got to go.

i think my bro used to do that with his husky. you really wanna have your head right behind a horses ass? a husky would require little training. just a harness and a bungie cord.No longer stuck.

Do you think I could get my chesapeake bay retriever to learn how to do that, or is it specifically a sled dog thing?

It really depends on the dog. I tried to teach my dog to pull, but after 3 years of teaching it to not pull on a leash it just ended up confusing the hell out of him. He just runs a couple steps ahead so he doesn't get hit by my skis.
I have seen lots of none husky breeds out there though.
