Re: Building a saddle stand need plans

I have built two different styles, without plans, over the years.  I can take pictures and measure one of them if you like.  The ones we are using now, the ends, plywood, are angled about 45 degrees for the sides, think of a 45 degree triangle.  You can attach sides made of slats or plywood cut to the length of the saddle and 8 to 10 inches wide, to the ends.  Attached to the ends, screwed, are 2 x 4's for uprights and for the feet attached at a 90 degree.  The uprights are cut to the height you want the saddle rack to be.  I attached a stringer to the bottom of the uprights for stability.  You can make these for different sized saddles.  Some I attached hooks on the front to hang bridles and/or halters.  They are not hard to make and if they are setting in a tack room, they don't have to be fancy, just functional.  Or, they can be made of nice stock and be pretty.  Let me know if you want more precise measurements and a picture or two.
