An Iowa woman saw an unusual sight while riding home after a snow storm: an Amish man skiing behind a horse-and-buggy.
Jennifer Staggemeyer of Waukown, Iowa, was riding home with a friend after a trip to the Twin Cities in Minnesotawhen she spotted what looked like a horse-drawn buggy stuck in the ditch, according to NBC affiliate KWWL in Iowa.
But as Staggemeyer got closer she realized the man was skiing behind buggy as the horses pulled it along the road.
In a cellphone video, the Amish man can be seen skiing over drifts while his horses trot along at a good pace.
“The Amish think of everything. When not boating with skis, they are using the snow instead! We were hoping he had a spotter because what if he wiped out? No one would know!” she told KWWL.
