Shipping Costs In US

At the risk of sounding stupid and clueless; I need to send a halter that I sold to the buyer but I need to tell them how much the shipping will cost, I live in Maine and they live in Arizona..what would the cost of shipping be?

for small items like that the post office has flat rate shipping, go to the US post office websight, and look at the price for flat rate priority shipping. They even give you the box for free. I believe they have a 5 dollar and a 9 dollar box. However with an item that light weight if you put it in a small regular box it would probably be cheaper to mail. I think with the 9.95 dollar box anything under 4lbs is cheaper to mail with your own box. I ship bullets frequently and get my moneysworth out of the flat rate shipping can get about 60 lbs of lead in the 15 dollar box.
