Team Husky Horizon - Working Siberian Huskies 

 

News & Info 


2017-06-04: Cancelled breeding Team Husky Horizon Minnesota:

Unfortunately our female Minnesota, did play tricks with us and went over the days for breeding without we noticed. Her egs were ready three days prior to our expectations, so we were late. Well, then we had a lesson.

2017-04-06: Team Husky Horizon - More info about breeding plans this spring/summer:

We are very pleased to inform, that Team Husky Horizon Minnesota will be bred by Alka-Shan's Diamond-Dust.
We know 'Dusty' very well, and he has been father to our Alaska-River litter in 2015 which gave four very nice working Siberian Huskies.
Minnesota is sister to our Iowa, who gave us 6 very nice puppies in 2016. The 'Quest' litter. Minnesota is a bit more light build than Iowa but a bit higher too. In temper Minnesota is very close to Iowa. With small differences of course but pretty much like her.

This litter is planned, because we need to ad some new young Huskies to our pack, and therefor we will keep at least two puppies. With this litter, we will breed a bit in on the lines we have in our team. The inbreeding will be 6,45%. Not a lot, but enough to secure that we are strenghtening the expression of 'The Team Husky Horizon Siberian Husky'. If 2 and 2 still is 4 :-)

Our main focus is as always, to secure the best possible Working Siberian Husky (health, temper, moving, power, endurance, metabolism, etc) within the breed standard of the purebred Siberian Husky.

Take a look at the site 'Males for breeding'.

2016-05-05: Balto is home again, after his job as a stud dog in Hannover:

After a long vacation in Hannover at Kennel Alka-Shan, Balto is back home. We are so happy to know, that Baltos breeding was successful and that Alka-Shan's Yearly-Yalca, is with puppies. And that she has one for us too. Balto is brother to our foundation bitch of our kennel, Bliss. The first two litters we made, was with Bliss. The third litter was with her daughter, Nenana as the female. All the litters have added some to our kennel and to our performances in races.
We are pretty sure, that this new puppy will follow up on the positive development of our team.


2016-04-06: Vakarevo's Balto Of Triton breeded Alka-Shan's Yearly-Yalca:

Our great old male Balto is for the moment on a visit at Kennel Alka-Shan in Hannover, Germany. We now hope that Alka-Shan's Yearly-Yalca is with pups, and are looking forward to hear and see more.





2016-03-21: Indian Tribe Husky's Geronimo & Vakarevo's Balto Of Triton - Stud dogs

The two males, owned by Team Husky Horizon, are both chosed as stud dogs of other kennels this summer.
Geronimo is going to breed Kennel Ulvedalens Aliy Zirkle and Balto are on a summer visit at Alka-Shan in Hannover.
We are looking so much forward to the litters and hope for the best. Our plan is to take in a pup from each litter, if everything turns out as we hope. You can learn more about Geronimo and Balto on the site Our Siberians or the site Males for breeding. On our site Links, we have links to both kennels. Enjoy.

 

2016-03-18: Team Husky Horizon - International Scandinavian Stage Race 2016

Tean Husky Horizon entered the first edition of International Scandinavian Stage Race. A stage race in Swedish Lappland, more precisely in Umnäs, Storuman.
The race was a four days event, with different stages each day. The area the race was executed in, was absolutely beautiful. Fantastic nature and scenarie. The raceorganisation has secured the best possible trails, compared to the challenges the weather gave them only a few days before the race started.

Day one, a 38 km trail in mixed terrain and over frozen lakes. Some parts of the trail were deep and with water on the trail. That just added to the exiting challenge. It was a tough day for our team, as we did not have the same training on snow as our competitors. We only had 165 km on hard snowtrails from Denmark on a four wheeler, and 210 km on snow and sled in Sweden befre the race. All in all we had 1.100 km of total training before the race.
But, the dogs recovered nicely after day one and I was not in doubt that they were ready for day two.

Day two, a 48 km mountain stage, with a couple of serious climbs. The first 20 km or more, I felt that our team was on a trip to the moon. Up, up, up and up again. The team did extremly well, and with investments from me in cooperation with the dogs, we did a pretty nice stage. No dogs overworked. Only the musher. The scenarie up on the mountain was unbelievable beautiful. And the descent down the mountain was simply one of the best dogdriving experiences I have ever had. 

Day three, two sprint stages each 12 km. Normally this is one of my favorites. The sprint. I like the speed and the energy we as a team work with. Hey, all you distance racers. It actually is pretty nice to hammer through turns and narrow trails with trees on the side, with 30 km/h. This time I was exited, if the dogs could reset from the hard trails with limited speed, to the faster and shorter sprint stage. They did absolutely well. And I was working hard, as I used my Dannevall distance sled as a sprint sled. It steers like a sprintsled, but ofcourse it is more heavy, bigger and not as easy to run and kick with. Only three hounds team and a very experienced Siberian Team was in front of us on this stage.

Day four, a 32 km long typical MD trail. Also a favorite distance for my team when we do trainingruns. They just fit in to these distances, the dogs. The trails were absolutely nice prepared. The first 10 km or more, was a steady climp. Not especially steep, still it's pretty tough. The dogs were doing better and better, and I did to. We had the best run ever. A Siberian Husky Team, doing 32 km with an average speed of over 20 km/h, that is pretty fast. And we had fun as... The dogs just enjoyed the trail and so did I. Later we were told from the people along the trail, that they could both hear and see the happyness of the dogs and I, when we passed them. The experience of this particular stage, is printed into me forever. It was like I have always dreamed of. The effort the dogs did, the feeling on the sled and the efforts I did. It just worked out in a fantastic way. Only three hounds team was in front of us this stage.

We ended up with a pretty nice 5th place, on this very first stage race in our sleddog life. Only our 2nd race on snow, ever. Absolutely not the last.

2015-03-06: Vakarevo's Balto Of Triton and Indian Tribe Husky's Geronimo guestdogs on Polar Distance Team:

Our lead dog and pack leader Balto - 9 years old - and Geronimo, participated and completed the Polar Distance 2015, 180 km Nome style 6-8 dogs Group C.
Balto was - in a very difficult part of the route - in single lead securing that the team found the blown away trail, and hereby still was able to complete the race.

2015-01-25: Team Husky Horizon takes silver in National Championship - Rig race 4-dog class (Class C1):

First day racing went pretty well, and our plans were working very nice. We are used to do training passes on 20 km, so we knew that the dogs should adjust their performance and power to only 7 km runs. After day one, we secured a starting place only 2 seconds behind first team on day 2. A perfekt possition for our team. Day 2, the team was flying out of the chute. Knowing that the run was short, the dogs streched out even more and powered up accordingly. Unfortunately our young leader Maine, braked a bit after a takeover of a team competing in another class, and our wheeldog was tangled up in the neckline. Magnus had to stop the team to untangle the dog, and do the takeover one more time. The team was flying again, but it was not enough to catch up the lost time, to a very fast team in front.
We missed the first place by 8 (eight) seconds.
Well, that's a part of the game. We will be back racing again, heading for first place. Of course.


2014-12-30: Team Husky Horizon on trainingcamp at Camp Dannevall during Christmas and New Year

We had some great days and trainingruns during Christmas and New Year 2014, at Camp Dannevall.


2014-11-25: Team Husky Horizon wins The November Race class c1 - Again:

Magnus Persson had two fantastic runs in the 4-dog class for Siberian Huskies. 4,7 km in 9:59 day one, and 10:37 day two. What a team!!! The trail is a bit hilly, so the speed is actually pretty good, the trails in mind.

2014-04-13: Training season almost history:

The weather is now turning up the temperature, setting an end to our training this season. Has it been a good season for our team? Did we reach our goals? Depends on how you look at it. We choose to look at it, as a pretty good season. Despite the bad Winter, we have been able to put a lot of trainings into our dogs. Not counted on mileage, but number of runs. This helped us educating the youngsters in behaving and acting on the team. This season, we had 6 youngsters in our team of 14 dogs.
Out of the 6 youngsters, age 18 months now, we have spotted two new leaddogs and two more with leader potentials. That counts when valuing our season.

Late November 2013, we partcipated in a sprint race with two 4-dog teams. At this time we had eight dogs old enough for racing, so we did not have the possibilities of selecting dogs especially for the race. We used the dogs we had. And the two teams took first and second place. That counts when valuing our season. 

We have had a great trip to Camp Dannevall in Sweden in february. The maintaining of the trails and the professionalism Kjell and Nina Dannevall Works with preparing the trails for the guests, secured us two weeks with fine and dueable trailconditions. We did some very nice trainingruns and a couple of familytours. That counts when valuing our season.

Just now, we are looking at fourteen healthy and very wellconditioned Siberian sleddogs. Dogs that describe the type of working Siberian Sleddogs that we like. The result of our focus on buying, breeding, nursing, feeding, training and handling in a way that build up a team of Siberians we believe in. 
That counts when valuing a lot of seasons with our fantastic sledogs.
 

 

 

2013-11-24: Team Husky Horizon - Takes 1. and 2. place in "Novemberløbet" c-class:

With eight dogs allowed to race (due to age), we participated in this weeks November-race with two 4-dog teams in the same class. Magnus also had his debute in sleddog racing.
Day one, my team came in in best time - 11:19 and Magnus was third with a racetime of 11:34. Day two, Magnus was flying and raced over the finishline in only 10:26, and my team did 10:55. Both teams cutted of time in day two. That is pretty nice. Total racetime and first place, 22:00. Congratulations to you Magnus. I had to use 14 seconds more, and ended up in second place.
All in all, a great race-weekend for our Team. Team Husky Horizon. Born to run - Raised to win :-

                                  

 

2013-03-03: Team Husky Horizon - Split 1. place in rig race in Vroegum, Denmark.

This weekend, our team travelled across Denmark to participate in a rig-race in A-class (8-dog class), group C. We took 7 of our Siberians to the race, and they did absolutely very well. All worked nice and steady, with a great focus and great efforts. A split 1. place. We are pretty satisfied wit our team right now.
We met a lot of nice people and had a nice evening with dinner together with all the other mushers. Great arrangement. We will be back again next year.

You can se further details about our raceresults on the site "Racing results".

2013-01-20: Team Husky Horizon in Rig-Race:

This weekend, our team participated in a Rig-Race in Gribskov in Northern Sealand, Denmark.
We have dicided to try a couple of our young dogs (3 years old) from our Serum Run Litter, in lead. They did extremly well. Very secure in commands and worked with a fantastic drive. We entered the 4-dog class, wich is not a class that normal fit me, with my almost 100 kg. Despite that, we end up with a second place. Ulvedalens Bauge and Vakarevo's Balto Of Triton, worked extremely nice as wheel-dogs, and thereby complimented the high drive from our two leaddogs very nice. We even had snow on trails. On a wagon on wheels, that means extra hard work for me and the dogs. They did a great job.

2012-12-17: Puppies have now moved to their new puppy yard:

Our pups are now so grown up, that the puppy yard in the livingroom was to small for them. They have moved into our new indoor puppyyard together with their mother Bliss, and with occationally visit from some of our other adult male Huskies. We have almost moved into the new yard together with the pups as often as possible. They have a great time, running around the great dogyard, playing and climbing up their new puppy playtower, build by Magnus and Claus. They are all very great eaters and although they are little individuals, they have the same outgoing temper, in the most possitve way. The activity is in the high end of the scale, compared to other pups I have met. Also they seem to be very well in movements. The jump, run and climb on everything, and I'm impressed about their movements when they are sprinting around after each other. Even the most substant of the pups are light and fast on their feet. We are looking very much foreward to see them in action when they are in real training next september.

We wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

 
 

2012-12-04: New portraits of the pups - 40 days old:

All seven pups from the Team Husky Horizon,North American State Litter are developing very fine, They all seems to be very active puppies, with a great and foreward going temper. They are curious and like to be in contact with us. They all live inside the house with us. We have build a large puppy-yard in our livingroom. 270 cm x 160 cm. That gives all the pups great space to play in, and they are near us all the time. They are getting used to different noices and also learn our different voices. Great people contact makes great dogs. We believe that we are investing in the puppies mental bankaccount in a very possitive way. This is one of the important things we do, to fullfill our motto "born to run - raised to win". Enjoy the photos of each pup.
