Mad Barn Supplements Worked For Us!

We used a custom Mad Barn product for 9 of the 13 months we rode from Canada to Guatemala.


Last December Scott made us a custom product that was highly concentrated. I asked for a mix specifically for hooves, joints and digestion. Something I could carry with me while riding Roxy. On our trip, we rode up to 420 miles a month with a load up to 255lbs.

I really do believe this product helped Roxy stay in peak shape throughout the trip. I used it in soaked feed, whatever I could get along the way. Even better was when I also mixed in sunflower or canola oil, up to 1.5 litres per day.

Ask Scott about the MacLuckie Custom, it has vitamins, minerals, amino acids and probiotics…and no extra anything…

Here’s Roxy before, during and now after the 8000 kilometer trip.

Fernando Paiz and Flecha Roja, and Chris MacLuckie and Roxy. San Andres Itzapa, Guatemala. October 2018.

Above is a photo from mid October, 1 month after the trip ended. That’s Fernando Paiz beside me with his current endurance race horse Flecha Roja. He also uses Mad Barn products. Fernando and his sister Laura, an FEI certified vet, are Guatemala’s top endurance riders.

This is what Fernando had to say about Roxy:

“I finally got the chance to meet Chris and Roxy in person. As an endurance rider, I’ve been very lucky to have the chance to ride and meet some of the top horses in the world.

I must say that Roxy is one of those celebrities that has impressed me the most.

We went for a fun ride and could really notice how much Roxy liked cantering around the hills of Itzapa. I was also impressed by her body condition. Chris: what you do is magic. You always find a way to feed her the best. Big congratulations as well to Mad Barn supplements for co-sponsoring Roxy.”

Thank you Fernando for the kind words.

AND THANK YOU Mad Barn for making me the best “travel weight” product possible!!!

Chris and Roxy
