Ski joëring in Gryon

Description

Ski joëring is a magnificent winter sport where a skier is pulled by a horse on a rope.

From mid-December and depending on the snow conditions, enjoy a nordic enchantment during a Ski joëring session or a horse ride in the heart of the Cergnement valley. With the horses Bella (a Haflinger mare) and Lutin (a Freiberger gelding), Movana organises introductory sessions and outings for those who want to try this discipline which comes from Scandinavia.   You don't need a special horse to practice ski jöring but a horse that is willing to play the game: go in the snow, shoot, tolerate the noise of skiing on the snow. Horses have to train to get used to the specific noises of moving on the snow, to the weight on the shoulders since the horse pulls with the shoulders and not the back. It is a pulling animal that is more powerful to pull than to carry.  A trained horse can pull up to 5 times its weight but can only carry 1/5 of its weight.    For an initiation, this discipline remains accessible to beginners who have mastered braking (snow ploughing) and is suitable for children from the age of 7 years old. For the rider-skiers, Happy Horses proposes the jöring ski without rider; it's up to you to manage your skis and your horse! Walking, trotting and why not galloping?

Horse riding and Ski joëring in Cergnement throughout the winter on reservation with Movana (Happy Horses). During the February holidays, try your hand at joëring skiing and pony trekking in Frience. EQUIPMENT : - your ski (except poles), snowboard or telemark equipment - Wearing a helmet is mandatory for minors - Wearing gloves and goggles/mask is strongly recommended against the cold and snow that steals from the horses' hooves.
