As riveting as my rides on Carmen are for everyone I thought that it was time for a change in topic.
Since my pretty little trailer came home I've having fun getting it set up. My idea is to have some items that stay in the dressing room so that I don't have to remember everything. Right away I put a lead line, leather halter, lunge whip in the room. I then purchased a grooming kit, feed bin, water bucket and a fold up step stool. And the best clinic/horse show chair ever:
|Mine is red but otherwise the same|
|its awesome, it folds up small and can carry up to 150 pounds|
|my chair, whip, stool wagon , bucket and grooming kit all organized.|
I also want more places to store things. I found a system at the organizedbarn.com site. But it was expensive and once I factored in CAD pricing and shipping it was not feasible. Olivia at DIY horseownership is a genius at finding ways to duplicate or make her own things. She was my inspiration so I looked at the system and decided that it could be duplicated.
We already had a wire rack (like for store displays). So I had Ed and Andrew mount it on the trailer wall just to the left of the door. That space seemed like wasted space to me- the trailer came with small shelf at floor level but the rest of it was wasted. I went to the store and bought some baskets to hang. I have more to get but doing it this way has cost us no more than $50 and time:

Does anyone have other trailer/barn organization hacks that they can share?
