Lightbulb How to put my tack in my trailer??

Hi Everyone!

I just recently sold my horse trailer w/ a HUGE dressing room and got a bigger-wider trailer WITHOUT a dressing room. I am overwhelmed with tack, as I am an eventer with 2 saddles, 2 bridles, boots, change of clothes, etc. all shoved into my truck.

Does anyone have any ideas of how I can put my tack in my trailer without it falling all over the place while I'm driving? I'm not trying to spend $500 on a tack trunk either.... Any ideas??

Thank you!!

A friend of mine has (what sounds like) a similar trailer. What she does is she has those portable show saddle stands that you hang over the top of stalls? She uses those to 'clip' onto the side of the trailer usually she will put the tack in the horse slant that is before where she actually puts the horse. Does that make sense?

For just one day shows we tend to put all the tack in the backseat of my coaches truck. We're not driving fast enough (as we have horses) to cause it to slip. Otherwise we have a shelf in the actual trailer for bits.

We don't have a tack area in our trailer either so we put everything in the back of the truck. I do have a tall topper so my big western saddle with a horn fits on a folding saddle rack. We did a modification on the racks, putting locking wheels on the legs so we can roll them or lock them down when we are driving. I tried one of the portable saddle racks that have wheels already on them. .They don't work, and will tip over unless you have other things packed in around it.
If you have room, get one of these. I just bought one from TSC and love it. I'm sure it is sturdy enough to not tip over. Plus it has bridle hooks and rubber on the base to keep it from sliding around. I'm thinking you could even use some U-bolts to secure it to the floor of the trailer.


ETA its $79.00 at TSC

I just put everything in the back of the ute except my saddle and clothes which go on the back seat. It all fits in pretty easily.

Rubber Maid Tubs!

They are my lifesaver!!! You can get a couple of very deep/large one's where you can put all your necessities in them.

I'm an Eventer as well, and I wont go anywhere without my Rubbermaid Tubs.

I love them :) Your tack is sealed and not exposed. No worries about anything getting wet or destroyed from exposure. The only issue is clutter - if you want something, you have to pull other stuff out to get the item, just make sure you organize everything.
