AROSA, HORSE RACING ON SNOW
Horse racing at Arosa, Switzerland was first held in 1917. It now takes place in January each year on the frozen and snow covered Obersee Lake. Nearby St Moritz similarly hosts horse racing (in February), the two venues being the only places in the world where such racing takes place. At both the programme includes flat races, trotting and skijoring (horses ‘towing’ skiers). In addition Arosa includes races over hurdles. The photos in this gallery were taken in 2009 and 2011.
