Here is the story of a man and his horse.

From September 4th 2017, to September 14th 2018, one man and his horse travelled UNSUPPORTED thru 4 countries and 4 seasons, 20 out of 30 days a month, for a total of 7800 kms. 6700 kms together, and another 1100 kms by truck. 

Starring Athletes

Meet Roxy, a 10 year old purebred Morgan mare, and Chris MacLuckie, her rider and guide. Roxy proved to be an ideal horse for a long road trip, and Chris had prepared for 3 years to properly care for her.

Together they travelled from Rockingham, Ontario, Canada to San Andres Itzapa, Guatemala. Each day on the road featured 2-3 hours of walking and 4-6 hours of riding.

There were 3 goals for this long ride:

  • To raise awareness and funds for Maya Pedal, a Guatemalan NGO that modifies old bikes and transforms them into pedal powered machinery like corn grinders, coffee de-pulpers, blenders and water pumps.
  • To gather material for a book about the adventures and misadventures of riding one horse thru 4 countries, as well as what we’ve learned of people and ourselves. This book follows our previous one, The Edible Gardening Guidebook.
  • To get fat-ass Chris back into shape! It sort of worked…

The journey has been chronicled online and a post trip book will be ready for publishers in 2019. If you want to be part of our next adventures, follow us on social media and make a donation today!
