Two weeks ago I got to try out something so super fun and totally my sort of thing - I got to go Husky sledging! Amazing yeah?
Well it all started a few months ago when I got an email from the lovely people at Joesblogs asking me if i fancied a bit of a Husky adventure courtesy of Transsun. Now this is a blogger invite I dint even have to think about, not even the long drive could put me off so ton he 30th November I traveled up to Ambleside along with a few other bloggers to learn how to husky sled. The event took place up at Wray castle which was a beautiful location - I arrived quite early so I got a chance to look around. Wray castle and Wray campsite are only a little way apart - I’m already planning a return visit.
Sledging isn’t really the right term, it was super cold but there wasn't snow or a sledge insight instead we where shown ‘Rigs’ - these things look like a cross between a scooter and a segway. we had to start of on the rig without the dog attached, we had to practice going down hill, turning and going over pot holes. It was pretty easy to do but with out the dog attached it was hard work going up hill!
Then we got to meet the dogs.
Now the Huskies where so gorgeous, stunning dogs with such beautiful temperament. I was loving all the kisses and cuddles from the dogs as we waiting for our turn on the track.
I had Ice attached to my Rig, he was such a handsome fella, very strong at fast too. once he was attached I could use a few commands to control his speed. Ice and I where flying around the lake in no time, it was so much fun. I’m love to have a go at something like this on snow in lapland but the lakes is defiantly the next best thing.
Totally recommend trying it out, a definite once in a life time experience .
A massive thank you to Joe Bloggers and Transun for this experience!
