For some bizarre reason, I've been saving every issue of Practical Horseman that I've received for the last ten or so years. I've now come to the realization that I'm never going to do anything with them - at one point, I thought it would be a good reference library for me, but now I've realized that I never look at them, and they are just taking up tons of space in my closet and coffee table.
Any ideas on what I can do with them? It seems a waste to just take them to the dump - I didn't know if maybe some riding group or camp might want them?
I'd love any ideas you might have - trying to do some spring cleaning/purging, and these are one of the items on my list!!!
donating to the local library is an idea....or maybe the local 4H, Pony club or other horse club in your area. Or, like you said, a large barn with a camp could use them as reference or even arts/crafts.....kids could cut out the pictures for different projects, etc.
I pull out articles that are benefical to me or my students, put them in folders and the rest of it goes into the trash. Other magazines I pass on to others who want to read them. Another good thing to do is leave them at the doctor and dentist offices! I would be thrilled to be in a waiting room and find good reading material!
I'm looking for Feb 2012-present, and would happily pay shipping, etc. I subscribed for several years past my point of interest in the magazine just to see if my photo had shown up in George Morris's column yet. As of Feb 2012 it hadn't and I let my subscription lapse.

You can list them on eBay for a nominal price, and specify that they are for pick-up only (so you don't have to deal with shipping them anywhere). I would be shocked if you didn't have lots of interest in them!
