I've been doing a ton of research and looking at other barns.. I've seen this several times especially in the bigger facilities with multiple barns so I just had to ask!
Everyone was pretty clear that they wouldn't pay more for a tack locker vs. regular tack room (neither would I!) BUT:
What if there was 2 barns on the same property. One barn had a regular community tack room where you were assigned a bridle/saddle rack and you could bring your own trunk.. and the other barn had individual tack lockers IN your horses stall. For me, I'd still prefer the cheaper one.
What if the tack locker stalls were in the barn closer to the arena? Does that make a difference for you?
