    Zomg. Parents just came home...

    ... they went to look at trailers down in KY, and came home with a gorrrrgeous red Bison 2-horse, straight load step, no mangers, which means Zip won't get hay all up in his nose. =] It's got a dressing room, but my question is: How can I install some saddle racks?

    There are two ways that I've done it.

    The first is to pop rivet the racks to the metal wall - if the wall is strong. Some metal walls are rather thin. In that case, method #2 is the only way to go.

    The second is to screw (or bolt) 2 2x4 uprights to the wall about 18" apart (screwed or bolted through the metal wall into the wood - be sure to use large washers on the screws or bolts); secure a 1/2' plywood board to the 2x4s and bolt the rack to the plywood. I also paint all the wood to match the wall to give it a finished look. The preferred method is to use bolts instead of screws because they are considerably stronger.
