A blog hop from Brandy at Auf der Autobahn: what’s in your tack trunk (or locker, or tack room)?
Our tack room is a shipping container. They are sprinkled throughout the property at the various pipe corral barns. Inside, it’s neatly divided into a number of cubby areas.
I’m able to comfortably store quite a bit of tack and equipment. But since there’s plenty of open cubbies I admit I’ve spread out into the neighboring one for more elbow room.
So here’s what I’ve got!
- Impact vest
- Jump saddle and pads
- Dressage saddle and pads
- Grooming tote
- Plastic tub full of random barn stuff
- Air vest (inside white box)
- Tack cleaning bucket
- First Aid Kit
- Bath bucket & 2 spare buckets
- Bridle hook with my strap goods
Overall I consider this pretty minimalist. I keep lots of supplies and spare tack at home in
a section of half the garage, bringing it to the barn when needed.
*Special note, Brandy rides with the fabulous Lisa Bauman of Austin Eventing, whom I’ve followed for years as she competes her American Saddlebred. Small world yay!
