Chapman Springs Ranch 5361 River Rd
Chapman Springs Ranch is a 112 year old working ranch. The history is filled with stories dating all the way back to pre-historic times. Our land is rich with heritage and many of the original uses of the property are still prevalent today.
Safety is our number one goal. If you are new to Skijoring please review the full rules and regulations here. The basics are all horses competing must be shoed with property shoeing or sign a shoed waiver to race. A farrier will be on-site as well as a vet. Ropes and riggings will be reviewed before each race. You must register for your riding ability.
