Talking My new handmade (home-made) saddle stand - Saved me almost $100. :D

Me and my grandpa made this today. It took us about 3 hours to do. We made it out of a 12-foot-long cedar 2x4. If you can't see it, there are 2 hooks on the front to hold my bridle and reins. We made it custom to fit the measurements of my saddle, and it folds flat. We modeled it after a saddle stand I saw in a catalog that retailed for about $100. The picture at the end is me and my grandpa. Sorry, that's probably the worst picture of me ever. Haha

Mhm. It was pretty fun. =) My grandpa has a huge woodshop and I was talking about how my saddle has been sitting on the back of my computer chair since I got it and he said he could probably help me make one if I had a picture. So I found the one I had wanted and he helped me make it.

What a wonderful memory to have made. Very nice stand.

Besides the great time working with your grandpa, that is a great saddle stand.
He needs to make more and sell them on Ebay

Actually, now that I know how to make them, I plan on perfecting it and then maybe trying to sell some.

Very nice workmanship! Some paint or stain and it'll look professional. (BTW, I think those are 2X2 not 2X4).

That is awesome! My brother and boyfriend like making things like that, and they want to make me a new saddle rack as well. How much did all the supplies cost all together? Cause I found a metal one online for around 35, and if it turns out its going to cost more then that, I will just buy one.

Iridehorses - It was 12 foot 2x4 that we split 3 times with a skill saw. =)

Jillyann - I really couldn't tell you. My grandpa has a huge woodshop so he just went out to his shed and found something that would work. And he's the parts manager at a John Deere dealership so he got all the hardware for free. Haha
