Saddle storage

Ok, one of those odd questions that pops into your head. What are your favorite saddle racks or ways of saddle storage? Is there a method better than others to extend its life? Do certain racks cause damage from sitting the same way long term? Thanks!

Saddle racks that have the saddle resting on the panels can dent the flocking long term. Long term storage I prefer a bar that goes down the gullet channel.

For longer term storage on a saddle rack, especially wire or rod saddle racks, add a thicker blanket under the saddle.
Then the saddle will rest more evenly.

We had some stored like that forever that are fine after long time.

We have a half wall in our house by the front door. I have my dressage sitting on that with a pillow underneath to protect the flocking.

I bought some Saddle Mattresses (small business I saw an ad for on Facebook). They are great! They fit over standard racks.

Interesting, thank you.
