All of us ski nuts are always trying to find new ways to satisfy our itch to go skiing in the summer, and this Swede might just be on to something. Grass skis have been an option for a long time, but finding places to ride them can be difficult. Riding them behind a horse… that’s a different story!
Pontus Hugosson had the bright idea to hitch a rope behind a horse and ride his new grass skis around the pasture. I thought at first that it wouldn’t really be that exciting, but he actually gets moving pretty quick on those bad boys.
Now I just need to purchase a pair of grass skis, find a friendly farmer who will loan me his horse for a few hours, and get somebody to whip me around the place so I don’t go insane waiting for it to snow…
You just have to watch out for horse droppings and rogue farm equipment. That’s about the same as avoiding Jerrys, stumps, and rocks out on the mountains, right?
