Husky Sledging.

A few months back an email popped into my mailbox asking me if I wanted to go Husky Sledging - knowing how much of an animal lover I am, I knew there was no question about whether I would attend or not. So the 30th November finally arrived and me and Emma headed up to Ambleside along with a few other bloggers to learn how to husky sled. 

Obviously as there is no snow around, the 'sledges' are much different to what you find in Lapland, but they do make the experience so much more fun. We began by practicing on our 'rig' which is a three wheeled scooter-type apparatus that the dogs can be attached to. We scooted around going through pot-holes etc, to get used to the rig before the dogs were introduced. We did small practice with the dogs, making sure we new the commands and what the experience would feel like before we went around the track. I was a little apprehensive as to whether the dogs would like pulling a rig around, but they all seemed to love it and had an extra long harness to make sure they weren't straining. My dog Luna (same as my bunny!) was a little rocket and couldn't get enough of running around the track.

I ended up pretty muddy but the experience was so much fun. Plus it was set in the beautiful Lake District and we couldn't have asked for nicer weather. I absolutely loved meeting all the huskies and had so much fun watching them enjoy themselves. It was a really great activity and I would love to do it again (maybe in Lapland next time!).

Thank you #ExperienceTransun for this great day out!
