Now in its 6th season at the Shakopee racetrack. Horse racing in the snow, with a twist, is back at Canterbury Park. A horse, most often a quarter horse, and a rider in a stock saddle, run down the stretch pulling a skier through a demanding course complete with gates and jumps as they compete against the clock and other teams to qualify for the finals. More than 100 teams, with competitors from around the country, have registered for this two-day event.
A popular freestyle show is also featured prominently. Skiers and snowboarders, pulled by horse, launch off a 15-foot snow ramp across a 20-foot gap performing tricks and flips. Cowgirls, cowboys, and weekend thrill seekers will compete for cash, glory and prizes! Hopeful for another year of forecasts in the 30s and sunshine, to make the outdoor stadium seating a perfect vantage point to take in the action.
Gates Open at 11am | Racing starts at 1pm
