Made these for some friends with horses, the trays slide and are removeable for cleaning supplies.

Would putting them on wheels work to move around and to be able to store after being used?

I guess so. maybe wheels on one end? they arent very heavy. the oak you could sit on and try out the saddle, i don’t think the cedar would hold up.

Very nice. I certainly would use one. A value add is to put them on 4 wheels as you normally store a bunch of them together and then wheel them out for use unless there is a permanent dedicated spot next to each stall.

If you are thinking of making more… Closed drawers to hold all sorts of accessories and a side attachment to hold whips would be a great idea.

Duane, I made the mistake of showing this to my wife, and she wants 3.

Is there any chance you can send me a basic design? I have to make some for the tack-room anyway, and she likes your style.

I didn’t make patterns, as i wasn’t sure if if I would make more or not. they are about 18 inches wide and 22 inches long. I believe they were about 34 inches tall. More of a triangle than a half circle. the board sticking up on the top piece is to support the saddle so it won’t sag. if i can help more let me know, maybe i could draw something out for you.
