    That is quite interesting. Not the prettiest things, but I love the idea that you can store stuff inside it, as well. Like my non-slip bad, etc. Hmm.

    But the best part is they're sturdy, and they don't dent panels.
    I have an older foam flocked saddle that was dented by this style rack. There is a distinct line side to side across the back panels. It was already dented when I got it but it lines up exactly with the same style racks my boarding barn uses. My new custom saddle sits on my Mattes half pad with all the felt shims in it. I no longer need the pad so I figure it can protect my saddle.
    Oh, well, clearly you're not thoroughly indoctrinated to COTH yet, because finger pointing and drawing conclusions are the cornerstones of this great online community. (Tidy Rabbit)

    I put a pillow between my saddle rack and saddle. Very nice cushion.

    Default We made out own

    My SO made my saddle racks - using wood about same width as tree then adding sides in same general "look" as horses rib cage. Then I purchased old rug remnants, cut to cover wood (and wrap a bit under bottom of wood.

    Then I sprayed rugs with scotch-guard. Provides breathability, was realtively inexpensive, provides support without damaging flocking.

    Has worked very well for over 20 years.
