I was reading a thread on social media about saddle racks and someone had commented that a particular style of saddle rack will damage the panels on an English saddle if used. I had never heard this before. I don’t currently have a barn (just use my horse trailer for now) but I will someday and I want to plan my tack room accordingly.
I primarily ride Western so I have more Western saddles than my one English saddle. I had always pictured using something like this in my tack room, so each horse’s saddle could have their pad stored right below it I despise storing saddle pads on stop of saddles because I don’t like putting them upside down and I don’t like the sweaty moisture on top of the saddle seat.
Would this type of saddle rack damage the panels?
If so, what is a better design for an English saddle in a tack room?
