5001 MÉXICO A CABALLO

 

I am Long Rider Chris MacLuckie. With honor I once again set off on my trusty Morgan mare Roxy to set an example of working horse health.

In April the long ride begins in the Guatemalan Highlands followed by a year long tour through horse-loving Mexico.

This time, I will be riding less each day and month to make time for sharing more horse videos, interviews, and stories both online and with my hosts.

HORSES, HORSE HEALTH, AND HORSES AS THERAPY.

 

Throughout my trip I look forward to offering presentations with my hosts. I will cover 4 topics:

  1. How to travel down the road successfully
  2. Fitting a saddle that can hold gear and is comfortable for both horse and rider
  3. Hoof care (barefoot and easyboot)
  4. How feed affects health and especially foot health.

 

Keep up to date with our mission here, and on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Soundcloud.

 

LET’S RIDE!!!

I decided to go on another trip back to Mexico for a couple fundamental reasons.

I wanted to finish my ride with a bang and to do that I needed to focus 100% on horses. For me and several other Long Riders, México is the Mecca of horse riding. As I successfully completed 1 long ride, what better way to celebrate doing another long ride than doing it in the country where they do more horse rides than anywhere else in the world?

Mexico IS horses, and I look forward to sharing what I know about horse travel with the Mexicans I meet as well as with the world via this site and my books. Chris MacLuckie
