WHAT READERS SAY
Concise how-to English manuals filled with flowing full features.
Chris is a rare breed of rider, with knowledge that can only be acquired through experience. It’s fascinating to learn from someone who is traveling long distances by horse, today.
Simple, well-illustrated & oh-so-informative, Long Rider Chris MacLuckie shares big picture essentials that every rider must address to be successful. From lessons learned during his preparation, to those acquired during a year on the road, he distills hard-won experience into four big topics that matter most for solo horse travel.
This book is a must read.
Reader of ‘The Essential Guide to Solo Horse Travel’.
The GuideBook is packed full of incredibly useful information and advice without being overwhelming or pretentious. It’s very user friendly and detailed for any level of gardening experience. I really like the way in which the information on each crop is laid out. Very digestible (*haha see what I did there?!) and easy to navigate. I really enjoyed the month by month breakdown of garden work. Reading it in the winter has been such a tease as I’m itching to get back out and get some dirt under my nails!
