Northeast Equestrian Skijoring Regionals, presented by Baxter Outdoors, is a team time-trial race where a horse and rider pull a snowboarder or alpine skier down a 1,000-foot track of gates and jumps. Skijor Skowhegan is Maine’s first and New England’s only equestrian skijoring race. Competitors will compete for cash prizes and other swag. We are excited to announce Skijor Skowhegan will be hosted at the Skowhegan State Fairgrounds in 2020. Skijoring means “ski driving” in the Norwegian language and is a popular sport in the Scandinavian countries. Today the sport is appreciated and practiced widely throughout the United States’ Midwest. Main Street Skowhegan is proud to bring the sport to Maine and New England.
