Samantha has trained and raced sled-dogs for 14 years now.
She started with Siberian Huskies, running teams of 2 up to 6 dogs, and progressing into Scandinavian hounds.
During World Championship events for Dry Land and Snow, across Europe, she has acted as a team handler for other mushers.
For the past 2 years she has taken a break but now back with hound litter sisters Millie and Molly aged 7.
On her first race back at Sherwood, Samantha came 2nd.
Then at Thetford at New Year, unfortunately she had a crash, although that won't put her off.
