I board so our tack is in tack lockers but i'm quite happy with them. The only thing i'd like to do now is get some bridle hangers as I don't have any additional places to hang things. Please ignore my fiancee - he's a character. ;)

crimsonsky, your fiancé is a darling. For quick and easy bridle hangers, perhaps you could try screwing in some "house" style ones into the frame part of the locker?? If you do do that, you might also want to wrap a bit spongy tape (such as door jam insulators) around the hangers to help prevent them from leaving marks on your bridle 'cause it will likely be narrow.

hahahaha - thank you ladies! Yeah he's fantastic and is turning out to be quite horsey himself (he already has ariats, two pairs of breeches, helmet, saddle, horse, etc.) so I don't have to feel guilty about spending time at the barn or money on the horses. ;)

I have 8 bridle hangers on order so i'll put those up inside on the framing which should work out well. There were regular household hooks in our previous lockers and yes, they needed to be padded or something otherwise the bridles were getting those creases in them - no likey! I need another saddle stand though - the one we have is a three tier but the tack lockers aren't tall enough for all three. :( oh well - I still have a ton of space considering!

FarmChic, I love your tack room! My tack ends up staying in my room. Just my saddle, blanket, bridle, and brushes!

I board at a fabulous ranch. We have individual tackrooms. It is so quaint and beautiful.

Then this one opened up and I took it instead:

My bridle hooks are the small salmon cans screwed onto a 1x4" board. Because of the shape of the salmon cans vs tuna cans the bridles are less likely to fall off. My racks are made of old dry poplar firewood logs with a J hook at one end that hooks into an eye hook. My cost was a few dollars for each set of the hardware. Shower rods are inexpensive and great for holding saddle pads. Try the dollar store for plastic table cloths with the soft fabric lining for saddle covers.

Yes, I've used cans for brides too....very cool. I've also seen a rod made out of pvc pipe with rope through it on both ends to hang it up for horse blankets and saddle pads etc....cheap.
