The Kids Events: Learn to be a Musher

Mushing is part of the Yukon’s history. The relationship between a driver and his dogs is unique and promotes self-confidence, self-awareness and motivation.

One of YDMA’s goals is to increase the exposure of kids to the sport of mushing for supporting its positive outcome on youth, promoting humane treatment of dogs, and ensure sustainability of the sport.

In the short term, we organize the “Learn to be a Musher” events to present the multiple aspects of the sport and organize kids’ races. In the long term, we want to build a small mushing community building and mushing school at the Ibex Valley Tracks.
