Horses on ice

Mike MacEacheran,

Forget grass: the Swiss have gone one better with skijoring in the five-star Alpine resort of St Moritz. This exclusive form of horse racing, sponsored by luxury watch specialist Gübelin, BMW and Credit Suisse, sees jockeys on skis towed by horses across a frozen lake. With Badrutt’s Palace, the Kulm Hotel and the Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains overlooking the course, après-ski with Champagne on ice beckons after the races.
