I have a decent enough sized tack room. It could stand to be a bit bigger but it is workable with some creative space saving ideas. Ideas I've been kicking around for going on our 2 years here. My plan is to ask for the tack room remodel for Christmas. I am not sure how that will go over or if it will work. But seeing how it was going to be my fall project this year and that didn't happen for reasons we all know by now Then maybe I can work those sympathy points one last time to get this project done. I have decided to offer a contest for the best tack room design. This is not an easy task so a measly $20 gift card may not be worth it and I get like 0 entries. But if you're into that sort of thing, have some creative space saving brain, have had some tack room envy in your life then have at it!
There will be several requirements of what needs to fit in the space. You all pretty much know all the things you have and need space for? Multiply that by 4. That's what has got to fit in this space.
Things to keep in mind in your design.
I am a everything has it's place and every place has it's thing kinda person. Also kids work better when they know exactly where something goes.
Everything is on the table. I will not buy fancy items just for the sake of being fancy but I am not against spending on items that are helpful, organizational and attractive.
There are 4 people that need their own space for each item of tack for their horse/pony. Saddle or 2, saddle pads, girth, bridle, whip, helmet, gloves, boots/horse and human, wraps, grooming kit and extra tack box stuff, etc.
I am fine with a communal space for things like saddle pads but ideally I would like each person to have a spot for each thing they have. Not sure if it's realistic but that is the goal.
