Ride the Runners With 2008 Idiatrod Rookie Sven Haltmann,
This review is from: See You In Nome! An Iditarod Rookie Journey (DVD)
This latest DVD from Husky Productions is an excellent cronical of all the love, work and sacrifice that goes into preparing to run the Last Great Race, the Iditarod. You will go along as 2008 Iditarod rookie Sven Haltmann trains his team, prepares food and gear for the trail, and actually runs the 1000 mile Iditarod. You will celebrate with him as he finishes under the burled arch on Front Street in Nome.
The real stars of the film are Sven's team of amazing Alaskan huskies who are always upbeat and ready to RUN!!! The love shared between dogs and musher is evident as are the bonds between Sven's wife (a vet), and the dogs.
This is a must-have/must-see for anyone interested in dog powered sports and/or the Iditarod. The photography alone makes this film a winner.

For many years I have in awe of the mushers and their amazing Huskie teams, yes Iam an animal lover but huskies are an astonishing breed, great strength, huge hearts and in a way highly competitive. It is good to know that both man and beast on this staggering test of indurance are well looked after on this mammoth race. Right through out history dogs have come to our rescue especially in the snow, we humans owe them so much.
