If, on the other hand, you have always fancied the idea of ploughing through the snow on a sleigh drawn by a team of dogs, a trip to the Pyrenees is no longer necessary.
You need look no further than the mountains of Málaga, the Sierra de Mijas or the Sierra de Alhaurín, not to mention one of a number of dirt tracks, such as those at the mouth of the River Guadalquivir.
The sport in question is Mountain Mushing, which is practised in the province using sleighs with wheels specially adapted for use in snow-free terrain. For beginners, a bicycle is a good alternative. The number of dogs hitched up to the harness depends on the ability of the “musher”, as the drivers of these improvised sleights are known. In any event, man a hound in harmony with nature is a combination that gives immense satisfaction to both.
