Tack room pictures?
 
Well I have recently posted a thread asking people to post pictures of their barns. Alot of people posted and subscribed so we got to see alot of barns! I loved looking at all of them.
Well I am re doing my tack room this spring so Now I am asking if your guys could all post pictures of your tack rooms! I would love if you did! :) Thanks!

I'm switching to an English barn because my Western riding has flatlined and has been getting boring; I'll find some pictures from their website of the tack room!

My advice:
  • If you're considering painting. Do it before you hang a single bracket, brace of shelf.
  • You can never have too many bridle racks. I thought 17 to 20 would be enough ... it's not and I only have one and a half horses.
  • Don't be afraid to make it an actual room and use lamps, rugs, nice chairs or installing molding. I have a since added a big framed picture of me and my mare as a focal point in the room.
  • Dusting and tidying and keeping surfaces clear and clean, go a long way in decorating. My tack room looks like a perfect, staged, catalog room when everything is put away. Cleaning is better that any number of nick nacks or curtains.
I just read an article in our local SportHorse managzine, Flying Changes, about ways to decorate with old bits of tack. Using spurs as curtain tie backs, or english stirrups as a towel holder.


Apologies in advance for the quality of the photos. It's what I can do on my iPhone with the panoramic apps.

I hope this helps and I'd love feedback!

I've also added curtain and hung a top, separate curtain wire/rod, which I use to hang ribbons which look lovely as a vallence.

This is my tack, hay, and grain room. It is still under construction (hence the saddles hanging from the rafters!).
