My Model Horse Newsletter

Hartland Model Equestrian News began in November-December 2000. It keeps collectors informed about the 2001+ Hartland models by the newly-formed company, but it is really a news magazine on model-horse collecting in general. It touches on equine art and other horse lover's topics. Page numbers are carried through the issues, so it is like buying a book in installments! See order form for prices

Current Periodicals and Book Supplements by Gail Fitch

Even though I have a publisher for the two Hartland books, I still self-publish (with ink on paper). Since the two
Hartland books by Schiffer came out, I've created Directories/Indexes for the Hartland Books, and Magazines on
Horse & Hartland Collecting.
Watch for more updates to purchase. All are helpful and fun.
Find them on the Catalog page and on the Order Form..
