I'm moving barns soon and don't want to keep my saddles at the new barn because their tack room is really small and dingy, and my house is only 2.3 miles from the new barn (as opposed to 13 miles from the old one). Anyway, my boyfriend wants to build me a couple of saddle stands so I can keep my saddles nice and neatly at home. I have an Australian stock saddle and a Stubben jumping saddle, as well as two bridles (one of the trail and my English bridle for arena work).
What is the best shape for a saddle stand? I've seen them rounded, kind of oval and angled (like the top of a pyramid). Are different shapes better for different saddles? My boyfriend told me to find the plans and he'll build them for me. We have a shed out back that I can use for my tack, but I kind of would prefer to keep them inside the house (we have a couple of spare rooms they'd fit in), so I'd need to be able to hang my bridles on the front.
I've found this one that I like (especially the box on the bottom for storage): Free Saddle Rack Plans - How to Make a Saddle Rack Would this work for both of my saddles? Does anyone have any better ideas/plans?
