Spring is here! You know what that means… time for a little tack room spring cleaning!
Before you start getting frantic, come up with a game plan.
Here are some helpful tips to get you started.
- Color code
Organizing your tack (if you’re lucky enough to have that much) by color can be a great way to keep track of your things! Especially those pesky polo wraps.
- Use an organizer
An organizer is the perfect accessory for your tack room. You can use it to hold your horse’s medical records, important tools, cleaning supplies, and other small items that you need!
- Oil your leathers
Proper tack care includes oiling your leather. It can increase the longevity of your tack, and keeps it looking newer, longer.
- Feed storage
You can use big trash cans or storage containers to organize your different horse feeds. Keeping separate feed and water buckets is also important for overall barn health.
- Hang your blankets
Hanging your blankets can help de-clutter that tack room of yours by keeping them up off the floor, and off your horse’s stall door.
Using labels can help you organize your tack room, and help people find their way around.
Now get to cleanin’!
