At my old barn, we had lots and lots of shelves. As with most things, the more space I had, the more I spread out.
At the new barn, storage space is not quite so spacious. And my things need to be contained. I’m probably the last equestrian on the face of the earth who didn’t own a tack trunk, but it was time.
So I looked at the Dover and SmartPak websites and realized that when you call a tool chest a tack trunk, it immediately triples
(or quadruples) in price. I need a place to store stuff in a barn, not buy furniture for my house!
In the spring my husband bought me a tool chest for my trailer that was perfect — large enough to hold assorted bridles, girths, saddle pads, extra boots, and more; waterproof, easy to close, mouse-proof (closes tightly), and it even has a small tray, and a pull out handle and wheels, so it’s easy to move.
Of course they didn’t have the same model at Home Depot this time, but this Husky Mobile Job Box really does the trick. For a mere $64, too!
