As posted about previously by: Breeches and Boat Shoes, Equestrian at Hart, The $900 Facebook Pony and possibly others that I’ve not read about yet, I’m finally posting my version. As always, I’m late to the party.
I have stuff in several different places, but this post just includes my tack room/garage. I have things in the hay shed, the shed at my house, my horse trailer and my garage at home. We’ll worry about those later.
My main trunk is a Horseman’s Pride Tack Trunk. It’s not pretty, but it holds a lot. It could hold more than what I have in it, but I don’t like stacking stuff on top of each other unless I absolutely have to. #OCDprobs
Before I start listing off all that is in here, let me preface things by saying: I have an obsession with totes, boxes and containers. Always have, always will. So there are a lot of individual containers in my tack trunk.I also hate clutter, so this helps contain the clutter.
In addition to the tack trunk, I have: a saddle rack, a blanket rack, a small box with leg wraps/boots, food containers and a recliner that holds Dexter’s blankets. I know, it’s really classy. Eventually my husband will build me an area I can keep my stuff, but until then, this is what I have. It’s not ideal, it’s not fancy, but it works. And that’s what counts.
When you open up my trunk, you’ll see a tray on the right, a white basket, three totes with lids and some other things stashed down below.
Starting with the tray on top, this is what’s in my trunk:
