Tack Being Left in Car?

Will it harm your tack if you use your car as a tack room? Nevermind the smell, but is the heat of your car cad for saddles, bridles, ect, ect?

With the heat, especially if there's any humidity, I'd be very concerned about mold.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Be careful.. I only did it for awhile and it dried out my saddle majorly (Aussie at the time)

Thanks! Don't have to do it at the moment, but with the possibility of moving to my old barn, that may happen for a week or 2, we'll see

The heat build up in a car would be pretty brutal on leather.
