#5 Gwenn Bogart

5 — Gwenn Bogart from Boulder, Wyoming.

Age 64.

Gwenn began mushing in October 2012 working with various Iditarod mushers in her home of Wasilla/Willow, Alaska. Her only previous animal handling experience had been training horses and competing in three-day event and dressage. Gwenn’s desire to do the Iditarod consumed her fall and winter days, and she qualified for it by finishing two Copper Basin 300’s, Sheep Mountain 150, and the Northern Lights 300. After moving from Alaska to Boulder, Wyoming, she competed twice in the Eagle Cap Extreme 200, twice in West Yellowstone Rodeo Run, and once in the Big Horn Rush Classic. This will be Gwenn’s second Stage Stop.
