Was it useful at shows?

Anything you liked better?

I have one at the ranch. It's never been to a show.

I wish it were a bit wider, as the bridles sometimes catch a bit on the saddles.

That's my only beef with it. It holds a lot, is easy to keep clean, and serves my purposes.

I think they make a western version that is itentical to the english one in design, but a little bigger. That might solve the bridle problem. I can't remember where I saw it though.

A friend of mine had one...and it's a huge PITA to get in and out of the trailer...even with a ramp...

PITA to get in and out of trailer because it is heavy, doesn't travel/roll well.....?

The western one is wider, but only has one saddle rack.

They are heavy. I wouldn't want to lift one in/out of a trailer. Rolling it up a ramp would be ok.

I bought one for a former trainer years ago and it ended up only being used at really bit multi day shows for this reason.

It's VERY heavy, doesn't roll very well (either up the ramp or to your stall), and takes up a LOT of space. My friend's is now sitting in the hay barn, collecting dust...
