Elkhart County Parks Mushing 101 class November 19

ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. -- On Saturday, November 19 from 1-3 p.m. at Benton Dam in River Preserve County Park, the Elkhart County Parks is partnering with Heartland Mushers Association to offer a Mushing 101 class on dog sledding.  

With or without snow, using gear with bikes and canicross, the basics of dryland mushing will be covered in the dog sledding lessons.

Dog owners are invited to see if their canine campions have what it takes to try their hand on a temporary dryland trail, and mush through a series of training techniques.

Throughout the program, experienced mushers will be available to help assist the participants.

The cost for ages 12+ and up is $10/person, and the dogs must be at least 15 pounds to participate on a leash (6' and under) while on the preserve.

The program limit is one dog per person (or participating family); for which you need to register by November 16 at elkhartcountyparks.org.

Located just South of Goshen at 68550 County Road 31, meet at the Benton Dam site in River Preserve County Park.
