What kind of tack box?
 
I am looking for a cheap, but sturdy tack box. I'm moving my horse down to school with me, and don't want to haul his giant show trunk down here seeing as we won't be showing. I need something that isn't too expensive but will hold all my stuff.

I have one and two girls at my barn do. It seems at every barn I've been too alot of people use this. It's really nice and has a little area that you can put grooming tools in. I'd try it out.

Look for a army metal trunk, they have handles on both ends, you can place a lock on them and they also keep the mice from getting in, I have 2 of them and painted them both, and they are not real big.
Best of all they will last forever and they are Cheap.................

These are all good ideas. Where do I find an army metal trunk?

Home Depot and Lowes both have a nice truck for about $100 that is a really solid black plastic w/ wheels and a place to lock it...

YES! We have an old metal foot locker and it is WONDERFUL! We used it to take DD's stuff to fair last summer and it was great! They are heavy, but wonderufl.

This link says, $39.94 for two, but go to Walmart and buy this. They're $20/piece, heavy duty plastic in 3 colors, black, tan, and blue, and they can be padlocked.
Sterilite Plastic Footlocker - Walmart.com
I also has wheels--bought one for DH to store a case's work in--and you WON'T need to paint it, plus it won't rust out.

Corporal!! I bought one last week! I loooovvveee it! The only problem I had was finding a lock that fits it well, but that is the least of my worries! I love this little trunk!
