Bits and Bridles Encyclopedia book

(Item: BITS AND BRIDLE ENCY)
Bits and Bridles an Encyclopedia by Dr. Gerhard Malm D.V.M. is a big 5 pound hardcover book with 550 pages. This copy is a 1st Edition. Thirtyseven chapters cover history and types of bits and their uses as well as every category of bits from driving, riding and military. There are 3 chapters just on military bits that include U.S., Canadian and British, and German and French. This book is heavily illustrated but I have never been able to count all of the photos and drawings. The collector as well as the professional horse trainer will find valuable information on the ''why's'' and ''how's'' of bits and bitting techniques. The price includes shipping in the USA. Other countries at actual cost. ***************** Some of the bit subjects included are; Ace, Acme driving bit, Agen overcheck, Ruben Aldaco, Ambrose Clark gag, American half-cheek, Pelham, Anderson, antler, Arch mouth, Artillery bit, Ashleigh elbow bit, Gary Avila, Balancing bit, Balding gag bit, Joseph Baldwin bit, Banberry cheek, bar mouth, J. o.
