On Saturday 18 January 2020, the Val Sarentino/Sarntal Haflinger Breeding Association hosted the 65th edition of the traditional Haflinger sleigh races with skijoring. The contests were held at the Rabensteiner farmstead in Mules/Muls, where ideal conditions awaited the equestrian athletes.

For the sleigh races, tradition requires all participants to use wooden sleighs and collars. Siegfried Nussbaumer's Quilli BZ26376 was the overall fastest contestant, while Christian Plattner's Arlett BZ29060 won the category of three-year-olds.

Skijoring is typically a spectacular sight, where the horse and rider pull a skier in full gallop, fighting for every hundredth of a second. Anna Seebacher’s Uhu BR BZ28029 (older mares) and Christian Plattner's Arlett BZ29060 (three-year-olds) won their respective skijor races.

Although the weather was far from cosy, the event attracted many spectators of all ages – a fun day out filled with thrilling races.
