Horse Tack Room Flooring Ideas

By Lisa Hobbie Created: September, 2020 - Modified: April, 2024

If you have horses or are thinking of getting horses, you may also be considering tack room ideas. Having a dedicated room for your saddles, bridles, stirrups, reins, halters, bits, and other horse and equine show equipment and accessories is a must if you want to keep your barn, stable, trailer, loafing shed, run-in shed, shipping container, or other simple shelter organized. 

When thinking of different tack room ideas, your mind may automatically go to questions about maximizing the room’s wall space to best organize the room. You may also be thinking of design ideas. Will you stick with a simple, western cowboy design, or, will you give the tack room space a complete, English-inspired, or modern makeover? 

Choosing appropriate mats or other flooring should also be among your top priorities.

Portable Horse Stall Mats for Tack Room Floors
