Ice, Sweat & Horses

Text and photos by Marina Vernicos

White Turf is a unique, top event, with exciting horse racing, polo with horses, sleighs, gourmet tastes, live music and inspiring art exhibitions taking place every year in early February in the winter sunshine on the icy lake , amidst the stunning snowy mountains of St Moritz in Switzerland.

This spectacular event is not another one with champagne on ice, but an annual event where horse owners, trainers and jockeys from around the world meet for something the town’s residents are waiting for throughout the year.
