Sport class skier and Great Falls, Mont., resident James Rowen glides through the course at the annual Wood River Extreme Ski Joring spectacle south of Bellevue on Saturday, with mid-valley resident Kat Cannell leading the way on her horse Gone Without a Tracey. About 600 spectators attended on Saturday and 360 on Sunday, according to co-organizer Michelle Bobbit. Seventy-three teams competed over the weekend. “It feels like a monumental point in winter,” Cannell said, “when horse people dust the snow off their saddles as we begin to have longer, sunnier days. It’s the promise of spring to come.”
