Protect Your Tack Trunk or Tack Box With a Cover

To ALL horse owners: taking care of their tack is top priority,
whether traveling to shows, on trail rides, or simply storing
the equipment in the barn. A tack trunk or tack box is an
excellent way to protect the bridles, reins, and other small,
but necessary, articles of horse paraphernalia from the
elements. Rain, humidity and sun can take their toll on leather
quickly, causing expensive articles to dry rot and making
replacement necessary sooner than it had to be. Tack trunks
or boxes are ideal to protect these items from ruin. An
additional good measure for protecting your trunk or box
from the weather is to invest in tack trunk covers or tack box
covers.
When you are ready to make your purchase, the internet will
be an invaluable tool in locating the right source and placing
your order. The following paragraphs will provide you with
some invaluable information as you begin your quest for the
perfect tack trunk or tack box cover.
For custom tack trunk covers, you will need to make precise
measurements of your trunk or box. You will need to record
the height of the box, as well as the width and length. When

you measure the height of the box, you will need to figure in
an opening for the handles on the ends of the trunk. You
should measure from the bottom of the box to the bottom of
the handle, from the bottom of the handle to the top of the
handle, and from the top of the handle to the top of the box;
recording each measurement. You should then add the
measurements together, and make sure that the total of
those measurements equals the total measurement from top
to bottom. These will be important, as each cover is custom
made to fit your trunk or box.
Covers come in our standard colors or sunbrella fabric colors,
or can be designed to reflect the colors of your barn or horse
trailer, if desired. The trim may be in a complimentary or
contrasting colors. The most popular material for covers is
sunbrella, because of its weatherproof quality. The tops of
the covers may be padded in a diamond or square stitching
design.

initials, a ranch brand, or even a family crest. This will be
another personal taste decision and will involve another color
selection. Silk screening these designs is another option, and
may actually be the better choice for ease of cleaning the
cover.
Trunk covers are hand made in the USA, considering the time
spent and tedious nature of the project to make them may
take from 3 to 5 weeks. Call to get an estimate on the timing
to make a custom cover for your trunk.
