Biography

Trent Herbst, 45, was born and raised in Wisconsin. He completed his education at University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse with a major in elementary education and has been a teacher ever since. He became interested in the Iditarod while teaching in Switzerland when his students wanted to hear all about the Iditarod Race. He began mushing in 2005. He says, “Happy to be back… love the dogs and traveling down the historic trail.” Trent will be running yearlings from Ed & Tasha Stielstra’s Nature’s Kennel once again. He says, “Huge thanks to students (past and present), family friends, and Tim for all the prodding and support to get back on the trail.” He now lives in Idaho where he teaches fourth grade. He summers at their property in the Homer/Anchor Point area. Trent is married to Candida. They are the parents of two daughters, Kali, 13, and Kire, age 4. Trent is a member of P.R.I.D.E., American Pack Rafting Association and Alternative Education Resource Organization. He lists his interests as rivers, family, dogs, travel and teaching.
