Skijoring at the Winter Olympics

Skijoring was only a demonstration sport once - at the 1928 Olympics in St. Moritz, Switzerland, with the only Skijoring event being held on February 12.

Skijoring is a sport that centers on being pulled by animals or motorized vehicle while on skis. In 1928, the athletes were towed behind horses. There were no riders on the horses, there were no jumps on the course, and all athletes competed simultaneously.
