Anyone want to help me outfit my tack room?
I'm building my very first barn (eek!) and I finally have everything pinned down...except my tack room! The barn is starting at 6 stalls with the possibility of adding 4 more down the line (the beauty of going cinderblock!) so keeping that in mind, I'd love some help setting up my tack room. This is my private farm and the only horse that wouldn't be mine would belong to my barn manager if s/he has one. Ideally, I'd like between 15 and 20 bridle racks and 9 saddle racks. The room will be 12x12, 1 wall is taken up by cabinetry, a sink and a tack cleaning area, another has the door, and another has a central window. I know that I don't want to go plastic or metal for the saddle/bridle racks, but I also don't want to spend $500 for a set of three saddle racks, either! I also think it would be neat to have some sort of double door cabinet with shelves for saddle pads, boots, polos, etc. Anyone care to share their tack room designs or offer some suggestions for racks and cabinets? Thanks!
