I need help from you horse people!
Hoping I can get some ideas here… I’m ready to start setting up my new tack room. I’m trying to come up with ideas to organize most efficiently. We ride, drive, teach clinics, and give lessons, so I have harnesses as well as saddles, plus all the other stuff one collects when they have horses. We also have a variety of sizes of horses in and out of here as a training barn, which results in its own storage issues! My tack room is fairly small, and I try to keep my stuff purged to only what I use regularly. I’m open to any ideas anyone can offer for a smaller sized tack room (8x12’), but especially ideas for the bulky stuff, such as extra collar pads, extra thick pads for riding purposes (ie foam riser pads, buddy pad, etc), full-body fly nets (I usually just hang by collar hook), hoof boots, etc. This stuff just seems to take up tons of space, but I don’t want to give up an entire saddle rack for a lightweight, but bulky, pad. I’m also sick of the drawer and shelf stuff that just collects thick layers of dust and cobwebs. Please offer up the solutions that you’ve found! I am a visual person, so pics are greatly appreciated, too! Post them in the comments, and help others as well!
