White Turf Family Days 2022 in St. Moritz on Feb 19
Feb 19 @ 11:30 AM - 4:30 PM
Thanks to the recent blizzard, the Engadine is a veritable Winter Wonderland. What better time to experience the White Turf Family Days than during the third and final weekend?
For the first time in 2022, the organizers of White Turf are dedicating a day to families and those youngsters interested in equine sports. For the third Saturday in a row, the White Turf Family Days on the frozen Lake St. Moritz will be welcoming families and children. Accessing the festival grounds is free of charge - it's an ideal opportunity for anyone who has been wanting to feel the vibes of White Turf.
Did someone say pony races?!?
With the aim of attracting a new generation to equine sports, White Turf is hosting a number of events with a low barrier of entry. From skijoring trials with a mounted horse to pony races, there are various ways for children to get involved.
Registrations are accepted in the information tent on the lake. Keep in mind that for skijoring, you will need to bring your own ski gear: skis, ski boots, helmet, and back armor.
For children who simply want to be around equines without actually competing, the festival offers pony rides. Meanwhile, the adults will appreciate the delicious meals at the food stalls, meanwhile watching the races unfold on the frozen lake.
