    Could you have something like a chain running down the wall behind your saddles and such, and use small locks to attach things to it you don't want taken? I don't think you need to make it so it can't be taken, but if you just make it so it isn't easy to take things, then people generally don't. Or you could loop a chain through a few things, like your head stall, bridle, etc and then secure it with a lock?

    It can be really irritating when people take things, but I can understand your reluctance to leave. Now that you have mentioned it to the owner, maybe it won't happen again.

    I didn't want it to come to that. I was more looking for pictures of how other people handled it, I should have been more clear.

    I bought one of these Stanley Pro Mobile Tool Chest: Tools it is large enought to hold my saddle but I do not use it for that. I have my extra bridles, halters, lead ropes, reins, as well as anything that people might go.."no one uses this, so they won't notice if it disappears." I also put my fly sprays, shampoos, medications, and similar stuff as well as more expensive items such as clippers and boots in there. It has a removable tray that works great as a grooming tray. And had a built in lock as well as 2 places for padlocks. It has a extendable handle and wheels for easy mobility.

    I am in a barn where I trust everyone fully, however if some how someone else got in there I would hate to have my stuff disappear. I have a McClellan saddle and just run a bike lock through the opening and around the suppost of the saddle rack so it does not walk away. I leave my handmade rope halter out (cost me a whole 75 cents to make), as well a "well loved" but sturdy nylon halter as well as a cheap no frills cotton lead rope so my horse can be caught and handled.

    Everyone else there leaves their stuff out in the tackroom and have not had any problems. I guess my over protectiveness coems from not having a lot of $ and living in a horrible part of the city where if it isn't locked up it is gone. My family is also not horse friendly and do not agree with it what so ever all horse stuff must be kept at the barn and to have a lifetime of horse stuff hoarding to get stolen would be terrible.

    At Bridlewood we have private tack lockers, for all the reasons given above.

    I have a trainer that wanted all her tack together. She has a vinyl garden shed... it's about 4'w x 6' tall... holds 4-5 English saddles, & a western. Plenty of room to also hang bridles. Locks easy. We found a corner for it. I think it looks to be the same size you have shown in your photo.. She just screwed in a wood support (in the back) for saddle racks to attach, and added more hangers for bridles.
    You might be able to find a used one.
