Skiers attached to 78-stone horses as they thunder down a snowy race track compete in a bizarre sport known as skijoring.  Horses and riders are specially trained to pull the skiers who are attached to the animals by a tow rope.<br />
<br />
The skijorers tackle jumps and obstacles as they race down a street in Helena, Montana, US, all vying for a place in the national finals competition.  Freelance photographer Donnie Sexton took photos of the unusual sport as competitors raced to the finish line this weekend.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
