How self-storage could solve your tack room overcrowding problem

Self Storage Ashford

If your tack room is massively overcrowded, you will need somewhere suitable to store your excess tack and saddlery. A self-storage unit in Kent could provide the perfect solution for storing your gear; here’s why.


Saddlery and other tacks can be extremely expensive to buy and insure. It’s therefore crucial that you find somewhere safe and secure to store it. A self-storage unit is staffed and CCTV monitored 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, making it just about the most burglar-proof option for storing your tack.

Suitable environment

Leather Saddlery can be ruined if it is allowed to dry out, which can happen if it is kept somewhere near a radiator, underneath an air conditioning unit or in direct sunlight. A self-storage unit is temperature controlled and enclosed, so there’s no risk of your saddlery become dehydrated.

Damp will ruin your leather saddlery. Damp causes mould and mildew to form, which can stain the leather and rot the stitching. The inside of your self-storage unit will be dry and sealed so that there is no danger of water leaking in and ruining your tack.

Mice and other pests can severely damage your leatherwork by nibbling at it. Self-storage units are sealed so that you won’t have to worry about hungry rodents invading.


If you have several different saddles and bridles for different disciplines, you will need a fair amount of space in which to keep them. Unless your home has plenty of suitable storage space, a self-storage unit is an ideal solution. There will be plenty of space for a saddle horse on which to place your saddle and bridle hooks can be fitted too.

If you have a lot of rugs, saddle cloths, bandages etc, you could have racking fitted in your storage unit to accommodate these items.
