    My old barn had a communal tack room, but everyone was respectful and kept it neat and tidy and no one used other peoples stuff.

    My barn before that I took everything home with me because people would help themselves to your stuff and then leave it lying around in the mud etc.

    Now we have a communal tack room but my hubby built me this!
    Now everything is locked up tight!

    I won't have a problem with keeping everything clean and tidy. I'm an organizing monster when it comes to my horse stuff. I wish it was the same for my own room and stuff.

    Hunter65: that is beautiful! I love it! I'm also very jealous!

    For tack tags, I purchased these Personalized Sports Zipper Pulls for Teams & Clubs at Birthday in a Box

    You can pick your color, add a name and they have two different horse designs (and tons of other cute designs). They are $0.99 each, pretty durable and have saved us more than once at shows with a shared tack stall. :)

    A lady had it custom made for her, and then I bought it from her.
    With the topper it's as tall as me - I'm 5'3" - and it still loads onto my horse trailer full with 2 saddles, bridles, boots, helmet, all my grooming/care/braiding stuff, saddle pads, boots, polos and blankets.

    It's awesome lol.

    Also get it in writing the terms of vet care in the event you are not present or able to be reached. A BO needs to know the extent of care you want or your sick/injured horse as well as where you want that care to stop.

    I always make my boarders put that in writing.

    The boarding application asked that and I came up with a plan to give the BO an instruction sheet (call me, if no answer call my boyfriend, then my dad, then use her own judgement except for euthanasia)
