It's just me and my 3 horses in a 3 stall bank barn w/wash stall.

Upstairs is the hay, feed and tack. The feed is kept in 2 metal trashcans (1 for each type), then there are 2 shelves above the cans with supplements, buckets and the feeding chart on them. Next to the cans are 2 small rubbermaid containers with beet pulp and hay pellets. Feed bags are stored on wire shelves next to the "feed station".

Tack is in a cabinet that my dad built me. It has hooks on the inside of the doors, on the side walls and back wall inside. 2 saddle racks, rubbermaid drawers and shelves keep inside organized, plus there is room under a saddle rack for another rubbermaid container. All of my saddle pads and extra blankets are stored in the top of the cabinet on a big shelf.

Downstairs, all of the first aid, grooming and bathing supplies are stored on a wire rack in the corner of the washstall. Extra buckets are also down there as well as bandages and brushing/bell boots. Pretty much everything down there is in a rubbermaid container to keep the dust off.

I also keep the dressing room of the trailer pretty well stocked - it's to the point where I just have to put tack/show clothes and the braiding kit in. Everything else is there.

I think that's it... I've worked very hard to organize the barn over the past month of so. So far it's working :)

My setup? 9 bridles hanging on hooks on the back of my bedroom door, a chest of saddle pads in my closet, and 7 saddles in the corner of my room.

The barn I take lessons at has 6 saddle racks in a tack room, and over 20 hooks for bridles/halters/leads in the aisle. There's also an english saddle in the aisle. He keeps all of the blankets in a HUGE chest and all medical supplies in a cabinet. Also, all of the grooming supplies are in a bag...

I have a tack locker that I store my grooming kit, spare halters, bridle, lunge line, fly spray and other things I need on a day to day basis. I have a saddle rack directly below my locker, but I prefer to keep my saddle at home when it's not in use. The tack room at the barn freezes overnight and I'd prefer that my saddle stays in my house, where it will be warm and safe from dishonest people.

I'm about to have a tack cabinet built for me...we have someone in the barn who keeps borrowing from me as well as some other boarders without asking. Someone used a half a bottle of my showsheen, and broke the trigger head off the bottle, then stuck it back on and left it in my cubby. Nice. So I'm going to have my tack locked up ASAP. I believe someone used my bridle as well, and I had a whole pack of tack sponges disappear...


Right now, our boarder's tack room has cubbies about 6 and a half feet tall, 2 and a half to three feet wide, about two feet deep. I think everyone has kind of modified them to suit their needs. There are two aisles of cubbies. My cubby has several hooks for all my junk. A little shelf for all my bottles. In the bottom I keep my cooler and my grooming bucket and bathing bucket. I think I have some polo wraps stuck in my bathing bucket because the storage bag broke. My helmet hangs on a nail on one side. I throw my pads across the front wall, which comes up about 18" from the ground to make the "box" in the bottom. I have a little box with mane pulling/braiding supplies that sits on the wall by the pads...My boots are in a corner somewhere. I don't want to get mud in my cubby, but I think everyone got tired of tripping over them in the aisle so I moved them in courtesy. Haha...

I plan on having a tack cabinet similar but improved.

I store most of my tack in the garage. I have 4 blanket hooks (holding 2-3 blankets each), 4 saddle racks, some saddle blanket bars, a few bridle hooks, a set of plastic drawers for leg wraps and a first aid kit. I keep my "seasonal" and "not often used" tack in large Rubbermaid totes in a storage space in the garage attic. I also keep two saddles, the most used bridles, brushes, halters, etc. in the locked tack compartment of my trailer and keep my feed grain and supplement in rubber totes in the back of the trailer. When I need to haul somewhere I do have to move the totes out, but it isn't a big deal as I don't keep more than a few bags of grain /concentrate on hand at a time.

I would love to have a proper tack room in a proper barn, but that's just not in the cards for a couple more years. For now, I am thrilled to have the horses at home and a warm place to store most of my tack.

My hubby keeps thinking I have WAY to much horse "stuff", but every time I go through it all, I realize I NEED it all. With 4 horses, 4 seasons and 3 riders in the household, we use a LOT of equipment.
