I have my horse at home. We have a little front (mud)room in front of our house where we keep our shoes, coats, etc. My parents have given me one shelf for my lunging stuff, grooming kit, halter, lead rope, etc. I then use a sawhorse across the room for my saddle & saddle/winter blankets. I keep his bridle in my room hanging on my door for the winter so the leather doesn't crack, but in the summer it goes outside too.
I am very disorganized ;p
When I used to ride at a nearby barn (before I got my baby) the tack room was a converted stall. This tack room was used for all of the owner's horses (school horses, etc). Nothing was locked, but everything was labeled and sort of organized. There were locked cupboards up stairs near a viewing room. They were locked and were for the boarders at an extra charge (something like $10 a month). The only problem with the upstairs boarding lockers were that you had to carry all of your tack up and down a steep flight of stairs.
This is how I store my bridles and all my misc horse stuff is in the rice chest. As I said previously, I have the beet pulp in there and it dispenses at the bottom. It's really rather awesome!P7280172.jpgP7280173.jpg
My current barn doesn't have lockers nor locked rooms. People who own horse(I don't) can put their (unlocked) tack trunk on the side of the inside of the barn. However, people are VERY trustworthy. I put some of my stuff in a friend's tack trunk(she won't use my stuff) and my saddle stuff in the tack room along with my brushes.
I find the all convenient...only because my fellow barn people wouldn't take anything.
Saddles, pads, bridles locked in a climate controlled tack room. Grooming supplies/ first aid kit locked in my tack trunk outside my horses stall. Next to the stalls is a hot/cold water wash room. On the opposite side is an indoor arena.
I have my horse at home, there is old steamer trunk which holds tack I use offent like grooming kit, boots, helmet, halter, leads, and more. There is a new blue metal trunk which has all my out of season blankets and sheets, fly sheet, rain sheet, blanket liner and winter blanket, this is in a out of the way place. A rolling cart with a first aid kit in one drawer, bathing stuff in another, tack cleaner and other tools and pieces in the bottom. Plus a saddle racks for a western and side saddle, and a couple bridle hooks. All my stuff plus feed is in a space smaller than a 3 by 5 foot place.
I am another of those lucky ones that has my own space all to myself (well, except my Dad, he has tack in there too, but I don't think that really counts as we're family). There are ?5? Saddles in there, we used to have about 4 or 5 more but lost them in the fire. I lost count on bridles. We've got saddle pads for each saddle with 3 or 4 extra, like MHFQ, I store my pads turned upside down on my saddles.....
Sorry for the clutter, I've still not gotten everything arranged and tidied up from when we built the tack room and moved everything in last spring.
We keep our halters and stuff outside the tack room so that if we need to grab one in a hurry, we can without having to get into the tack room itself.
I have a giant tack box that sits off to the side of the main set of cross ties. I have a tote of grooming things which I store on top of it along with a bucket of misc. Sprays and liniments and my tall boots in their case.
Bridles, lunge lines, whips, side reins, and whatever else can be hung go on hooks on the other side of the cross ties.
I have two saddle racks in the actual tack room and under those I have another giant tack truck of *stuff* and on top of that is a bin with all my saddle pads and next to them is all my spare blankets in their bags.
There's racks of hooks on each stall for halters (hooks at every turnout gate as well), blanket bars on each stall where I keep my cooler and either his sheet or midweight blanket depending on weather.
Grain is in metal bins in the feed room. Supplements are in drawers on the shelves above the bins and extra bags of grain are stacked in there.
I'm the only boarder so as long as I don't make a mess or move my friend's things around, I can store whatever I need to pretty much.
