The Leadville variant of skijoring is spelled with two words. In Leadville, ski joring consists of a horse and rider pulling a skier at a fast pace through a course that has gates, jumps and rings. The skier is timed through the course, and penalties are assessed by missing gates or jumps, and by missing or dropping any of the rings (two seconds each). The skier and horse/rider combinations are determined randomly before the event.
