I am leasing a horse that is boarded at a stable that has a lot of kids / teens riding and hanging out. I am more than welcome to use any of the lesson program supplies.
However, as might be expected, a lot of the shared equipment is pretty beat up.
I want to go to my nearest tack shop and treat myself to a nice grooming kit and other odds-and-ends that would be handy to have.
Question (for those who have BTDT) - Obviously, it's more convenient to leave everything I need at the barn, but I'm having visions of my things "taking a walk" and being used / lost by the kids.
What is the best way to keep everything handy AND secure. There are no lockers available - but there is room for a trunk or bin.
I'm concerned that I'm going to go to the tack shop and spend a lot of money on something pretty - only to discover that there is a much better (and probably cheaper) and more convenient way to store my things at the barn.
In your experience - what works best? Thank for any ideas and suggestions...
