Horse Packing: A Manual of Pack Transportationby Charles Johnson Post
In an effort to further its educational mission, The Long Riders' Guild Press is attempting to republish the most important titles ever written relating to equestrian travel, classic equitation, and horse packing. Often this involves locating rare volumes which can only be purchased at great expense. The information lodged in these books is however too valuable to be neglected. A case in point is "Horse Packing," authored by Charles Post.
Unlike the majority of authors who had written on the subject, Post was not only a former military man, he had also made a record breaking equestrian trip through the rugged Andes mountains of South America. Originally published in 1914, "Horse Packing" was an instant success, incorporating as it did not only the very essence of the science of packing horses and mules, but giving Post's own valuable insights into what had personally worked for him out on the trail.
The book is amply illustrated with a multitude of drawings showing how to secure loads, tie an assortment of various rope hitches, and even choose the proper pack animal. This rediscovered classic remains fascinating reading for students of the horse or history.
