How do you store your stuff? :)

Lets post how we store our supplies and tack at the barns we use :) for example, saddle racks, hooks, lockers. Even talk about annoying times when people take your stuff. :)

Here is my story:

Wow, the tack room at my barn doesn't even get locked!

Anyways, I love the set up of my tack room but sometimes the things that are out in the open will get taken and misplaced all the time. (talk about annoying :P)

Basically, we all have 3x5 (roughly) wooden lockers that are always overflowing. Tons and tons of saddle racks (which is a game of musical saddle racks every day. Everyone fights silently for the best spots LOL) and a huge wall full of hooks for bridles/reins/nosebands/tiedowns.

I used to have my bridles & reins hung up on the wall but usually when someone needs a snaffle they are missing their own, they would take mine so I resorted to buying a over the door hanger for unused halters and ofcourse, my bridles and reins.

All of my grooming supplies are stored in a rubbermaid plastic storage cart. The first drawer has things like brushes and hoof picks, second drawer has product type things (hoof polish, detangler, conditioner, sprays, etc.) and my bottom drawer is random (lol) plastic gloves, treats and some other things thrown in haha

Our helmets get stored on the top shelf of the locker and I have two plastic storage bins (one for ransom and one for Dakota) we put things like breast collar, bell boots, lunge line, spurs and more.

Anyways, I know that was long but maybe someone will like my storage ideas :))

I store my immediate tack either in my tack locker at the barn, or at the tack shed at our house. If I'm going to show I put whatever tack I need in the canopy of our truck or in the tack room of the trailer, but we have a stock trailer with not much room so mostly we just put some grooming stuff down there. My show saddles all get covers and the bridles hung up on a Tough-1 bridle bag. I also have a rubbermaid container in the back of my little chevy in case I'm going downtown and plan on riding I can stick anything I need in there if its down there already.

I board with family and the only storage is their garage right now. The little section designated for tack is overflowing, always has been, so for a while I moved all my stuff out into their garden shed, since half of it wasn't being used. I was constantly being given the hint to get my own grooming supplies, so I did and was all too happy to seperate my stuff from theirs. The garden shed was quite a bit further than the garage though, and eventually my stuff ended up back there. Now everyone uses MY grooming supplies. Gotta love family. When I bought my brand new saddle, there was no way I was leaving it crammed in with all the other tack. That's the one thing I take home with me. The saddle rack in the garage though holds 6 saddles and hooks all over that holds all of the bridles and halters. It's really a big mess.

I don't share with others, so it's just all my stuff (which is probably, okay definitely, more than any one person needs) I have a tack/feed room, it has 5 rolling saddle racks against one wall and 5 hanging over them (all overflowing and most doubled up on saddles - pads are upside down on top of saddles, show saddles & pads stay in the house). I have a tall metal locking cabinet that holds all of the horse blankets, leg wraps, a shelf of helmets, neck sweats/training tools/breeding hobbles/etc.

I re-purposed some old metal kitchen cabinets & corner lazy susan to hold all of the doctoring/medical supplies. The lazy susan is fantastic for ointments and such, and no digging to find what I want. Best 20 bucks I've spent on the barn so far picking up those cabinets.

On the outside wall of the tack room I have hooks for halters/lead ropes, and a wood box for grooming supplies. Also on the outside wall I have tall lockers (bought from a school auction) that are perfect for hanging all of my bridles, the shelf on top has grooming stuff for each particular horse.

Then I have 2 tack boxes that hold all of my clippers and show prep stuff.

Thanks Bella. Maybe if I had to share I wouldn't be such a tack hoarder I've thought about having boarders but I like it just being me & the nags too much.
