tack box? saddle rack? i need ideas!
for my ag class we are going to be building something. my younger sister is in the class with me, and if we want to have a partner we must do something a little bigger. so i was thinking if i do it alone that i could do a saddle rack, but we want to do something together so we were thinking about a tack box. it would have to be a bigger one. does anyone have any plans for one?

what plans did you use? or did you make up your own?

If you do some research online, you will get some ideas there of various tack boxes that are already out there. How big are you planning to make it? Make sure you do a lot of research on the wood you decide to use.

When I build mine, I use a thinner plywood with more layers which made it about half the weight it would have been had I used a thicker wood. I also have wheels build on the back of it with handles so I can move my tack box myself without problems. The dimensions are also important. My trailer doesnt have a tack room so the sizes of my tack box is design to fit in the empty standing stall which converts that side into my tack area.
