Fadri Casty is pulled by his horse Bergonzi during the White Turf ski joering ("ski driving") event on the frozen lake at St Moritz.

The three-day White Turf tournament at the famed mountain resort in eastern Switzerland dates back to 1906, and also features races with mounted riders and trotting, both on the frozen lake.
