I'm considering purchasing a tack trunk so my lovely husband will stop pestering me about the collection of stuff in my actual trunk
I don't show or need to transport things long distances. I essentially just need a repository for 2-3 blankets (of varying weights) and odds and ends like saddle pads, halters, leads, bits, fly masks, etc. Sort of just a swap for seasonal stuff that's not in use, if that makes sense. I don't need it to hold saddles or hang bridles, so I think what I need should be pretty basic.
I'm looking for opinions on what size and features I should look for. I'd prefer something made of wood, and am also wondering if a wooden trunk should have any special sort of lining (like a blanket chest might have cedar lining...). Any other tips or advice? Thanks!
