Tack Room Organization Tips!

Any time you bring equestrians together at a place like a boarding barn, it's easy to accumulate clutter and become disorganized. Especially during winter when there are extra layers and things to keep warm. That's why we take great care at Southwind to keep our barn aisles and tack room spaces clean and clear of clutter. We know our boarders work to do their part as well and for that we are thankful! If you are looking for a few tips to get your own tack room or space organized, here are a few thanks to an article from Equus Magazine.

• "Mount leftover or recycled household cabinets for additional off-the-floor storage. If you don't have any "extra" cabinets, post a want ad on an online swap site. For easier access, remove the cabinet doors."

• "Repurpose a blanket rack to hang saddle pads. Storing your damp saddle pad on a rack instead of over your saddle protects the leather from salty sweat. This will also help your pad keep its shape."

• "Purchase a step stool that has interior compartments. A storage step stool is a great place to keep grooming aids, such as braiding and/or banding equipment. Plus, it is highly portable."

• "Invest in a filing cabinet to organize important papers. Assign a file to each horse in the barn and keep a copy of his health, insurance and farrier records along with special feeding instructions or other documents. Keep the originals in the house for safekeeping."

  • "Use clear, plastic drawers to organize everything from brushes to first-aid supplies. The translucent containers make it easier to quickly find what you need (Equus Magazine)."
