RIG RACING SEASON IS HERE!

So much has happened since  the summer…

Fall training runs, dryland mushing rides, rig races, & a new handler all the way from Alaska!

My Mushing Mentors Aliy Zirkle & Allen Moore were guest speakers at the Northern New England Sled Dog Trade Fair in October. They got to see 2 of the puppies from a breeding with their #1 male leader, Beemer.

We also had our 1st 4 & 6 Dog Rig Races of the season & came in 2nd in both!

*Two weeks later we headed to Canada for the Bristol Dryland Canadian Championship Dog Races.

We loved Ottawa, the endless switchback trail, the easy to view races, our mushing next door neighbors who had the remedy for Runts runs, & my best mushing buddy who drove  me all the way home all night long arriving at dawn…
