Winter weather cooperated on Saturday, March 4, 2023, as Ridgeland hosted its first-ever Western skijoring event at Eldon Luer Field.

Organized by the village business community and Hillsdale-based Rocking J Ranch, the event included skijoring by experienced skier-horse owners. Participants could bring their own horses and equipment, or, if they only had skis, organizers provided the horses.
