I added a picture of it, it has a long back because we attached it to the stud in the wall and wanted more than one anchor point. The only part you can't see is a piece of wood that the saddle is sitting on which is just a 1 by 6 about 30 inches long.

You probably could make a couple of pieces that the saddle sits on and attach them to one two by four to have a bunch of saddles on it. I like it, it was just made out of scrape lumber from a barn that was made and a hour, and a saw, a handful of screws.

Should say I had a fleece blanket (scrap) on the wood to protect the underside of my saddles.

Me and 2 other boarders have our saddles directly above our bins - I got lucky 'cause my saddle rack just happened to have a hook on it for my bridle, too! So all my stuff is in one place. The wall directly across/in front of the door has 2 big feed bins and tubs supplements, a rack for saddle pads, and then all the schoolie bridles. The wall to the right of the door just has more bins, my coach's farrier equipment (her and another lady do all the feet themselves), and a sink. The wall directly right of the door has shelves for everything, and hooks for spurs, girths, hole punches, etc. And that's our little room! :) I'll try to get some pictures of it when I can! I love how it's all arranged.
it sounds nice and tidy.
My barn is lessons/boarding
My riding instructor has over 15 horses and multiple english and western saddles for all. It's a mess! Hahaha

it looks really nice and sturdy! I'm glad I saw this because we have lots of scrap wood and not enough saddle racks.

Thanks, I couldn't afford those metal ones so we made do like usual. Checking out garage sale and stuff like that you can find nice trunks, this is a picture of my wooden/canvas one before I refinished it, I have another that is wood/metal and bright blue, both were only $15 each. Plus they fit a ton of stuff.

We used to have our own saddle stalls with mangers, saddle, and bridle racks at home.

Now we keep everything in the the tack room of our trailer....and on several racks in the house.

Same as the OP I have those 3 drawer plastic chests for polos, boots, extra chicago screws, tools, curbstraps, roping gloves and some vet supplies that don't fit in my vet box. My vet box(a tool box) is in the trailer, except for the meds that require the fridge.
I leave all my snaffle setups in the trailer on the bridle hooks but all the good bridles and hackamores in the house.
The pads and blankets I try to hang out to dry every time I use them then get hung on the blanket bars in the trailer..otherwise they get stinky and gross.
Since moisture effects ropes I try to keep them in the mud room and coiled nicely so they aren't too kinked and weird when we rope.

Because of the humidity, I open the door to the tack room everyday whether I ride or not to get air in there so nothing molds.

It's so nice and efficient, Lexiie! :) I really love having it like that! We've got a good number of stuff in our room too...we make good use of a small space! There's 12 saddles along one wall, plus my coach's 2 on her smaller wall by the door.

That's crazy!!! I'm definitely going to get some pictures really soon. I swept the entire room with a little 3 inch hand broom and dustpan today...hard work, but it paid off LOL. It looks so big and clean and spacious in there!

I do have my tackroom organized, it's pretty fancy. If I were at home I would take a pic, maybe tomorrow. I do keep my immediate using tack in the horse trailer tackroom right beside the arena as I am going to lessons a couple times a week.
