Any pictures of your paneled tack and feed room walls?

Can anyone post pics or offer suggestions for walls of the tack and feed room?

I am looking for some kind of paneling or boards that my husband and I can do.

Having the contractors finish the outside of both with tongue and groove.
May do the inside the same, but looking for pictures or other options.

I don't have any pictures as I don't have a tack room, LOL.
But I have seen some very good results with certain types of beadboard. You can hang it and stain it, or stain it then hang it (It's easier to stain then hang.) and it'll give a polished wood look and hold up well, but the beadboard is typically kind of expensive.
I've also seen drywall used, but in my experience if you'll be moving or tossing stuff around or mounting really heavy stuff, then drywall can be to 'weak' and you could wind up with holes in it easily. But you can also paint it any color you want more easily than a wood product.

Yea, definitely a no on the drywall. Want some kind of wood look, just can't decide what look I want. LOL

We built our own (cowboys, not carpenters so it's not perfect LOL) and were on a very strict budget so we used particle board for the interior and exterior walls. It's worked well for a little over 2 years so far though I may eventually replace at least the outside with plywood because it is smoother to the touch and lasts longer. Our old tackroom was plywood and was still in great shape after over 30 years....until the barn burned .

ETA: The reason we left the side with the lines visible was because it made it easier for use to line everything up LOL. As I said, cowboys, not carpenters . The other side was glossier and unlined.

I like how you left the lines visible Smrobs. I just can't let my poor mom see it, she used to work home improvement...she'd want to sand and stain it, LOL.
I like being able to line things up without a level.

Beadboard can give either a cottage look, or a cabin look depending on how wide the lines are. If horses will come in contact with it, don't bother with BB, it's too expensive to have it chewed and rubbed on.
If horses will be able to rub/chew, go with plywood or OSB, but be careful with the OSB it'll leave splinters more easily than plywood.

Smrobs it looks like you have OSB rather than Particle board, if so, good job because PB won't hold up well to wet/dampness at all. OSB can be stronger than plywood according to how it was glued together.

LOL, I have no idea. We basically went to the lumber store, pointed, and said "We want that". It has held up well, even where it's been wet. Right there behind the faucet gets wet almost daily and I've not noticed any disintegration.

MY tack room is how Smrobs is. The wood has been up since 2008 and still looks great.

LOL, sounds like my BF in the hardware store, he takes me to buy any of that stuff, he has no clue, poor guy. :-D

Yup, probably OSB (Oriented strand board.) If it were particle board it would essentially 'melt' as soon as it got wet. Particle board is compressed sawdust, maybe with some glue added and a veneer of some kind over the two main sides.
Lots of low quality furniture is made from PB nowadays. I learned that the hard way when my cheap computer desk got damp from a busted pipe that leaked onto my bedroom floor, it literally fell apart in my hands.

Okay, that clears things up! LOL, I have some of that crappy furniture in my house too so what I've got at the tack room is definitely OSB.

My tack room is lined with 2x10's and plywood on the inside and 1x6's on the outside front.

Before everything is put away...

The outside...
