Ceilidh isn't the most confident puller, but I had her out a few times this year and she did okay I suppose. I had her attached to my skijoring belt. Problem is, I'm still not the strongest skier and I'm afraid that when Ceilidh DOES start to pull better that my insecurities will travel down the line and I'll discourage her. Exactly opposite of what I want to do.
SO.... I decided to make a tow-bar to attach my line to. That way I can let go at any time and still encourage her. I really think this will work in this situation, now I want it to snow so I can test it out. It's the middle of January in Ontario and we have no snow!
