I don't have a tack trunk but I have a saddle cart that I carry out to where we saddle up. On it I have
saddle and pad
halter and lead rope
tea towel (hand towel with a button and loop)
hoof picks
bot knife
about 6-8 body brushes
2 face brushes
2 curry combs
1 sweat scraper
1 mane and tail brush
pkg of rubber bands
Vida's nose and eye hankies
bottle of Listerine

I think that's about it. Remember I carry this thing from the tack barn to the hitching rail every time we ride so I try to keep it to a minimum although it does have wheels its still heavy.

I have no idea whats in my tack barn. too much stuff to be sure!

Heres what my saddle rack looks like

This is gonna take a while.......

- 1 wither relief half pad
- 1 baby blue/brown baby pad (to keep wither pad somewhat clean)
- 1 grooming box containing:
- 2 hard brushes
- 2 soft brushes
- tiny clippers for whiskers
- 2 hoofpicks
- 1 mane/tail comb
- 2 pulling combs (one with a blade)
- couple of rags
- 1 brush for me with lots of ponytails
- 2 curry combs
- 1 face brush
- Galloping boots (hind and front)
- Bath bucket containing:
- Mane N' Tail Shampoo
- Cowboy Magic Conditioner
- Show Sheen
- Fly Spray
- Sponge with scrubby thing on the other side (best thing ever)
- more rags
- Liniment (that wouldn't fit into my first aid kit)
- Poultice (same as above)
- Random halters and lead ropes buried under everything
- Gallon of fly spray to refill my spray bottle
- 1 girth that needs serious cleaning (which is going to happen this weekend)
- MTG that I need to start using on Bricken's pitiful tail

I'm probably forgetting lots of stuff. Oh ya and I keep my bridle and breastplate in the tack room, the saddle and helmet, half chaps, and boots stay at hom. Tonight I'm going to be cleaning out my tack trunk and hopefully making some room for coolers, sheets, and winter rugs.
