Video captures Amish man skiing behind horse buggy

HARMONY, Minn. (KWWL) — An Iowa woman captured a video of how one Amish man took a joy ride after the recent snowfall.

Jennifer Staggemeyer, of Waukon, caught an Amish man on video skiing behind a horse-drawn buggy. Staggemeyer, from the passenger side of the car, grabbed her phone and snapped the video.

“We were on our way home from the cities, around the Harmony, Minnesota, area. I first thought when I saw them up ahead that they were stuck in the ditch,” Staggemeyer said.

She said as they came closer they realized what actually was happening and a friend in the car told her to get out her phone in the nick of time to get the video.

“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 said.

Staggemeyer questioned how the man was able to keep his hat on during the joy ride.
