Track Details

San Juan Skijoring presents a one-of-a-kind “J-Hook” track with a table top and cross-over in the final straight away. The gradual open corners of this track will allow for horses to reach top speeds exceeding 30mph. The skiers will navigate gates spaced at 15 to 25 meters, as well as jumps ranging in size from 3 to 7 feet. The course difficulty will be changed slightly between the pro and amateur divisions to keep skiers on their toes and the audience engaged.
