I don't have a tack box either but I do have a pretty big wooden locker thing that I keep some this stuff in:

- galloping boots
- wither pad
- fuzzy girth
- grooming kit (w/ stiff brush, soft brush, curry comb, comb, brush for me, braiding bands, little hand held wahl clippers, rags, sponge)
- bucket for bathing
- mane n' tail shampoo
- cowboy magic conditioner
- mane n' tail detangler
- show sheen
- liniment and poultice that won't fit in my first aid kit
- spare halter and lead
- tons of treats
- baby wipees for cleaning the horse in the winter

I keep my bridle and breastplate w/ martingale in the tack room and keep my saddle at home.

In our barn's tack room I have...

2-3 Saddle pads I own, but like 25 others for lesson horses.
Lots of extra girths (those are mostly for the lesson horses)
Grooming supplies (brushes, hoof picks, etc.) on a big shelf.
Some half-chaps & extra field boots.
Lots of halters, lunge lines, & extra stirrup pads.
Bridles (of course!)
& in this other room next to it we have lots of blankets, fly masks/sheets, first aid kit, MTG, some buckets, hoof oil & polish, boot polish, etc. & a trail bag.

Prolly missed some stuff but oh well, lol.

Ride more, worry less.
