Hi Rita...nice to see you here...!!! I don't live far from Thetford forest where they run the huskies in the winter....it's sandy and flat and great for it...so I am seriously thinking of having a go with the girls....but tell me...do they walk on the lead well for you after they know how to pull you along like that..???? That's the only thing I'm worried about.. and how often do you take them out in harness..??? Best wishes and enjoy this site..Sammi, Abbi and Lola..

Hi there Rita
Hope that you don't mind me asking, but I wonder if you could give me a hint as to where you got the harnesses from for your dogs. I have tried to find them before, but without any success, When I kept the Akita's I thought that I would love to have them pull something, with me attached, but now would just like to try the Irish out with a bike..
Hope that you don't mind me asking. All the best Dee and the gang

Hi there Rita
Well I couldn't have asked a better person, I will have to think about purchasing something, because my pension may not stretch to the amount just at the moment. (We have some shows coming up soon).
Will definitely put them on my Christmas list though, can you tell me why the harness for long distance against the X back one???, is it because of the hight that it will be coming off a bike??? only thing is that my 'kids' don't have anything wrong with their backs, (I see that this type of harness is for dogs that have a bad back), maybe a lack of brains but nothing wrong with the backs....Thanks so much for the link I will definitely appreciate any advice, that you can give me, I may be old, but want to get the best for my guys..Thanks again Dee and the gang

Hi Rita. Sorry for a late answer but are you coming to train mushing or hunting or both? As you probably know I have been mushing myselv for about 40 years.  Do you have a plan to arrive Oslo,Torp airport? There is a lot of places. Let me know and I will help you. Are you on Facebook? Nice webside. Thor Erik

loved the photos.

never seen setters pulling a cart before, looked like they were having fun.

is it common in Ireland or are you one of a few.

Cheers from Queensland

Graham.

thanks for that, I don't think it would be a sport that will catch on in queensland, or at least I hope not, because of the heat. but it does look really exciting.

it was a trip to Ireland a couple of years ago that kindled my Interest back to setters.

we showed about 25 years ago but droped out and the dogs passed on. but now the interest is really back and this site doesn't help, looking at all the great pictures and videos available.

all the best

Graham.
