So I was recently given a horse and decided that I need a tack trunk because all of his stuff is just laying around right now. I am a cross over trainer so having a trunk/box that holds both an English and Western Saddle would be useful but I only ride Western horse right now (have two more horses coming in during spring sale). I have two designs currently that I have been debating (they are my own so there are no pictures online at the moment) one is a standing wardrobe style and the other is a portable trunk. Both are planed to be on wheels and have two saddle slots and the portable trunk that would go in the trailer on occasion would be able to stand so the saddles went from sitting on the gullet/pommel to sitting on a wrack. I am currently on a small ranch with a butler building to keep tack in but I would probably set this up and then leave it unless I have a camp, ranch job, or competition to go to.
I was wondering who has used both styles and which do you prefer?
What have you noticed was not there that you needed or that is there and gets in the way because it is not being used?
