Terise at Breeches and Boat Shoes just did a post on what's in her tack trunk. I love these posts because who doesn't love to check out all the random horse crap other people have, so I thought I'd jump in on the fun. (Bobby's training ride got cut short today because his bum has gone all wonky in case you're oh so worried about missing out on something. The vet is coming out tomorrow for routine stuff, and we have a call into the chiro, so he should be sorted out soon enough.)
Hubby had my tack trunk made for me for my birthday last year, and it's giant, but it still only holds a fraction of my shit. Here's what I consider my daily essentials:
Tupperware filled with random shit: extra boots, blanket straps, gloves, stirrups, polos, vet wrap, plastic wrap, and who knows what else. Surrounded by an extra lead rope, bridle, my hackamore, and an extra martingale, all of which probably needs to be cleaned.
Extra saddle pads that I don't use, but have just in case on top of that:
I keep my drawer slid over all that crap. In the drawer I keep: helmet, standing wraps, Dover boots, dressage tests, a couple riding books, whip, extra cookies, spurs, and a box o' bits. My quarter sheet also lived in there while it was cold.
Next to that: the saddle pads I use all the time, a bag of polos I use often, five point, tall boots, box of first aid shit, and my wash bucket with shampoo, sponge, MTG, detangler, and liniment. Also extra apple sauce to go with Bobby's magnesium.
And topped off with my grooming tote:
Saddles and bridle go on top:
