8 Championships leading her team to victory in just a 2 year period – placing 2nd and 3rd in Iditarod in the same years.


“Tiny but mighty” says her musher Nic Petit about Libby. A real social butterfly that gets along with everybody, loves to cuddle, gives hugs and sleeps on the couch—Libby owns the dog yard and rules the trail. An attitude that has resulted in the most impressive and outstanding rap sheet with fifteen top 10-finishes, nine times leading her team to victory. Libby has yet to take home the Iditarod Championship like her namesake Libby Riedels (the first woman to win Iditarod in 1985), but she almost did in 2018 and 2017 leading her team to a 2nd and 3rd place, respectively.  Without actually wining the Iditarod, her performance has been of such caliber that she amazingly twice has been nominated for Iditarod’s prestigious Golden Harness Lead Dog Award.
