VA Horse Center tack stall question
Our Pony Club is headed to Lexington next week for Championships. The tack room will be in a stall and we're looking to hang things on the walls. It's difficult to explain, but we have excess sections of metal bars that were used as stall dividers. They are 6' long, 30" wide, with a steel bar every 3". We will hang one on the wall, lengthwise, so the steel bars are parallel to the floor. This will be used to hang bridle racks, clothes hangers and any other thing that needs to hang. Needless to say, it will be heavy with tack, plus the 25# weight of the steel itself.
Has anyone found hooks that will fit over the concrete block strong enough to hang something from? I am not all that mechanically inclined and the kids are responsible for setting up their own tack room, so it really needs (14, 15 y.o's) to be teen friendly and stable.
Any tips on tackroom setup and wall hangers greatly appreciated.
