I am looking to get a nice wooden saddle stand (freestanding, think display) more towards the furniture end of the saddle stand spectrum. Any ideas on where to get one or companies that make them? I know about the ones from the obvious dealers like dover but they seem to be of not very high quality.
I wasn't really looking for anything fancy, just something to use when I cleaned my tack, but I ended up with a wooden quilt rack similar to this: http://robinsonswoodcrafts.com/quilt-stand.htm and it works great -- mine holds two saddles and my show pads easily (I event) and it looks nice. Mine came from a consignment shop for $30 but you can find a huge variety online.
I had my neighbor make one (for a special project) based on some plans I bought on eBay. Ours has a neck and head, mane and tail, and is on wheels. You can see a bit of it here: http://m482.photobucket.com/albumvie...MYn%2Bg%2BI%3D It's a handy thing to have around the house

Reason: that would be 'tail'!!
