Silly question about mushing!

Recommended Posts

Rumo and I were jogging down a long and very steep hill today on our walk.

. I said to him, “this would be such a great hill to sled on when it snows!” I imagined the sled flying down the long hill, picking up speed...then I imagined it with huskies running in front ( of course) and I was like, wait, I would run right over the rear pair of huskies, and have a big crash!

so do the sleds have brakes?

How do you keep from running over your dogs on a long steep icy downhill?

Yes they do have brakes...between the runners is a brake pad where you apply pressure to brake by standing on it...

Oh, that makes sense!
And standing on it with your whole weight should certainly apply enough pressure.

Thanks for satisfying my curiosity!

It does that and combined with the stop command it should stop 😂
