“I think the dogs can feel when you’re happy, a lot, and what energy you give them back.”
Welcome to episode Twenty-Seven of the “It Matters To Me Podcast”! I’m your host, Adam Casey, and my guest today is Ronny Ullrich, President of the Colorado Mountain Mushers.
This German-American learned to appreciate the outdoors while growing up in Germany from his grandparents, who, at a young age, helped nurture a love for all things wild.
Emigrating to the U.S. in 2002, he hoped to continue his active lifestyle and settled on moving to Colorado where he found the sport of mushing.
Once that took hold of him, he eventually became the president of the Colorado Mountain Musher, based in Western Colorado.
The Goals of the club are to foster novice and family racing along with other working dog associated winter sports by organizing a fun racing circuit of professional quality, encouragement of new mushers, and to promote and foster the well-being of sled dogs
Talking with Ronny reminded me of how amazing simply being outdoors can be and the beautiful power that can come from spending hours and hours by yourself in nature.
This is a great intro into the sport of mushing and has a lot of how-to knowledge for anyone out there who’s interested. And hopefully, our talk encourages you to check out an event if you find yourself in Colorado sometime.
So let’s get to it, here’s my talk with Ronny Ullrich
