Horse Snowshoes

The photos and information here are borrowed from the Alaskan Heritage Bookshop website, which sells Alaskan books, Alaskan art, vintage Alaskan memorabilia and photographs, and much more. Based in Juneau, the site bills itself “The Museum of Alaska History Where Everything is for Sale.”

One item no longer for sale is an interesting pair of snowshoes for a horse. The screenshots below tell the story – remember these are no longer for sale, but there’s a limitless supply of interesting items at the Alaskan Heritage Bookshop website.

About Helen Hegener

My books currently in print include "A Mighty Nice Place," Alaskan Roadhouses, The First Iditarod, The Matanuska Colony Barns, The All Alaska Sweepstakes, and The Yukon Quest Trail. I am currently researching and writing a book on the history of the Alaska Railroad. All of my books and DVDs are available on this site, at Amazon, eBay, IndieBooks, CreateSpace, GoodReads, and through your local independent bookstores. I’ve volunteered for several sled dog races, including the All Alaska Sweepstakes, the Yukon Quest, the Northern Lights 300, and the Copper Basin 300. I also organized and sponsored two Mushing History Conferences, in 2009 and 2010, which drew presenters and attendees from across Alaska and Canada. You can contact me on Facebook, at PO Box 870515, Wasilla, Alaska 99687-0515, and via email at
