Cowgirl - Tack

Tack trunks and lockers are a great place to store your horse equipment at the barn. They allow you to securely lock up your valuable saddles, headstalls, breast collars, and other important riding items. Unfortunately, it can be expensive to buy a trunk. However, if you have basic woodworking skills, you can build your own!


This tack locker has all the compartments you’ll need for brushes, wraps, first-aid equipment, and more. There’s also a place for your saddle and headstalls. It is conveniently placed on wheels for easy moving.
