Horse and rider training books for sale
I have 10 books on training of horse and/or rider for sale as a bulk lot, or individually. Pick up in Brassall, 4305, or postage at buyer’s expense. Postage varies depending on weight.
All books are in excellent, as new condition,except Clinton Anderson’s “Downunder Horsemanship”. For some bizarre reason my dog decided to chew one corner of the cover! 99% of the damage is to the corner of the hard cover though, and doesn’t affect the integrity of the book.
Would make a nice gift for a beginner or novice as a bulk lot for $100 (+ postage if required). Or for sale as individually priced. Happy to email photos of some of the internal pages if required to get a gist of the book.
