Skijor Skowhegan

February 25, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Be the thrill. See the thrill. Feel the thrill.

Skijor Skowhegan: Northeast Equestrian Skijoring Regionals is Maine’s first and one of two equestrian skijoring competitions in New England. In this team time-trial race, a horse and rider pull a snowboarder or alpine skier down a 1,000-foot track of gates and jumps. Competitors compete for cash prizes, swag, and bragging rights!

Spectator Information

Gates: 10 a.m.
Opening ceremony: 10:45 a.m.
First race: 11 a.m.

The Grandstands where spectators can sit are aluminum, we recommend you bring something to sit on to be more comfortable. This is Maine in the dead of winter, so dress warmly! We’ve had events with beautiful 50-degree days, and we’ve had freezing temps and snow. Plus, it can all change from morning to afternoon.

Other information:

  • $10 for parking
  • Dogs must be on a leash at all times–no exceptions
  • Please do not enter the competitor parking area unless you are with a competitor–this is for everyone’s safety
  • Drones are strictly prohibited
  • The beer garden, presented by Baxter Brewing Co., is open 11 a.m.-to the conclusion of the final award ceremony
  • There will be Skijor Skowhegan and Somerset SnowFest merch available for purchase
  • There will be a small concessions booth under the Grandstand offering soups, chili, hotdogs, and pizza.
