I'd never pay for that. I expect barns to have somewhere to keep my stuff, either they allow my box and provide a saddle rack or they provide a free locker.

I have to agree with Alex here. When I boarded I was never charged a fee or paid extra on my board to use the tack lockers/trunks. The only thing I had to provide was my own lock.

No way would I pay extra for what I consider something that should always be standard in a decent boarding barn.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Yeah I'm not sure why those barns would charge to use them seeing they keep the tack room cleaner. A few that I've seen, either charge more for lockers (this could also be because the "locker room" is in a more advantageous spot.. and then a few others have half ones and charge a little extra for the full size lockers. Right now my tackroom just has saddle and bridle racks for the boarders and they bring their own tack trunks. The can't be enormous ones like JDI's because they have to fit under the saddle racks. I would love to build full locker but we'll probably just go with regular tack trunk size. Who knows at this point.

I have been at a few different barns, most of which provide lockers.

One barn I was at had the full 6ft (or so) ones, they were very useful - held everything, no complaints.

Another barn I was at had lockers that were about 3ft high, but they were stacked one on top of the other - I hated this. The ones on the bottom, you had to crouch down to get your stuff out. The one on top were too tall (for me at least) to grab things from the back.

Currently I am at a place that has a tack room, and allows people to bring in their own tack trunks. I much prefer this - I have my tack trunk there for my stuff, but if I want to use a saddle rack/etc it is there for me.

The barn I used to board at (horses are now home) She (BO) had green metal lockers, (I never had one so I don't know what they were like) But now she got rid of them and just has saddle racks (the ones that stand on their own) For boarders saddles. It is all just in one open space. About the size of two stalls.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

I once had a saddle stolen at a place I was boarding- I was devastated. It wasn't a particularly expensive saddle but my parents had got it for me for Christmas and it was the first "brand new" saddle I had ever owned We had tack lockers but they didn't hold saddles- the saddles were just on racks in the tack room. After that whenever I boarded I always took my saddle home.

That's what me and my parents did. We took Abby's saddle home with us.

The things some folks want to charge for. Even more surprising, the things people actually pay for!

We have a tack room with individual tack lockers. Each locker is closet size. In fact many of the doors are reclaimed closet doors. There are two or three racks for saddles and bridle hooks on the door. The door closure hardware allows a person to bring their own lock. I use a wood burning kit and create a name plate for each locker. We also have clips so I can leave private notes.
