Isabel Stubbings tackles dog sledge solo during Canada trip

A brave Preparatory School pupil embarked on a daring activity as part of her recent holiday experience.

Isabel Stubbings, a Year 5 pupil at Rydal Penrhos, took on the task during her holiday to Lake Louise in Canada with family over the Easter holidays.

Among the things that the nine-year-old tried while on the trip was driving an eight dog sledge team solo, something she managed to achieve after a short tutorial.

Despite never doing such a task before, Isabel showed great determination to ensure that the dogs did not get away from her once they began moving at pace, something which father Adam stated was “a tremendous achievement”.

Lake Louise is a hamlet in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies, known for its turquoise, glacier-fed lake ringed by high peaks and overlooked by a stately chateau.

Hiking trails wind up to the Lake Agnes Tea House for bird's-eye views. There's a canoe dock in summer, and a skating rink on the frozen lake in winter. The Ski Resort features a wildlife interpretive centre at the top of a gondola.
