St Moritz Skikjöring Races & Sride Free

St Moritz Skikjöring Races & Sride Free

The Skikjöring races in St Moritz, in association with Longines are definitely on our bucket list of horse events we want to visit! In our absence, the european StrideFree team were amongst many rugged up to the nines for the annual snow races held over the duration of 3 weekends in February.

Since 1907 this annual event has attracted thousands of people to watch and enjoy horse racing at its finest. In 2015 the first ever night race was held at the famous 'St Moritz'. As you can see in the second image below the distinctive white piping of StrideFree is featured on both the winner and second place for the Celebrity Skikjöring Race sponsored by Longines.

Ariella Kaesli, european champion (gymnastics) (in pink) was the skilled winner in this spectacular race.

The Winner of the Longines Show-Sprint Race, Cheryl Schoch on Boccalino (below) is also riding in a StrideFree! Seriously Cool!

The StrideFree saddles used were the StrideFree Deluxe.
