The Legacy Lives On

Kennel founders Susan Butcher and David Monson’s legacy lives on! With the knowledge passed down by her parents, and the knowledge from her experience growing up surrounded by mushers and embracing the lifestyle in her 20s, their eldest daughter Tekla continues to foster a positive environment in which up and coming as well as seasoned dog mushers thrive. 

We are proud to work with many amazing humans who all share in the love for the lifestyle and culture of dog mushing. A few of these are committed to train and race Trail Breaker Kennel dogs in the coming season. Read about our race mushers here, and join us in supporting them and cheering them on as they travel down the trail towards their goals.

Elena Herreid has been working with Trail Breaker Kennel for the last three years where she has been training for and running mid distance races. During the 2024/25 winter season she is excited to be training up the yearlings and teaching them what they need to know to be successful whether they are going on camping trips in the White Mountains or running down the race trail. Elena is planning on running a handful of 100 to 200 miles races with these young dogs this winter and is looking forward to getting to watch them learn and grow.
