Fans of adventure, travel, horses and photography will resonate with this photo memoir. Most fundamentally, this book is for those who aspire to follow their dreams.
5000 Miles of Hope
THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO SOLO HORSE TRAVEL
written by Chris MacLuckie
Based on a historic 5000 mile solo ride from Canada to Guatemala, this compact softcover photo book provides the essentials to successfully travel thousands of miles with one barefoot horse.
Four crucial topics are covered:
1. Fitting a travel saddle with gear that is comfortable for horse and rider
2. Feeding on the road
3. Hoof care: barefoot and Easyboots
4. Travelling down the road successfully
Horse travel literature abounds with shod and pack horse how-to’s, however, solo and barefoot horse selections are far and few between. This concise book outlines the conditions for outstanding travel with ONE UNSHOD horse.
Horse lovers, minimalist voyageurs, the curious AND the sceptical will find this instructional photo book informative and enlightening.
These two special edition photo books can be pre-purchased EXCLUSIVELY during our 30 day Kickstarter campaign starting FEBRUARY 23rd.
After the campaign we will print off a limited run of 50 to 200 copies of each book then mail them out to our backers. Depending on the pre-purchase results, it’s quite possible the first offering “250 photos and stories from a 375 day journey by horse” will not be printed again.
The second book, “the essential guide to solo horse travel” will also be printed in Spanish and used as a central part of my presentations during my second trip with Roxy thru Mexico.
If our kickstarter campaign is not successful, the books will not be for sale, backer pledges will not be collected, and we will not do a bulk printing.
With that in mind, if you are interested in either or both of these books, please back my campaign, AND share this with your horse, adventure and travel friends so they can also pre-purchase the books.
Here are some examples of kickstarter book campaigns to better give you an idea how they work.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR INTEREST AND SUPPORT!!!
