Does anyone know of a salvage/trailer parts place to get a nice saddle rack?  We purchased a used alum BP this past year and the rack had been removed.  It still has the plate in the floor where it had been mounted.  I called the mfr and was told a new one was about $400.  I don't care what kind it is as long as the saddles don't fall off going down the road.  We tried mounting some of the steel tubular ones and they aren't working very well.  Any advice before spending that kind of money on a rack?  Thanks.

We gave up on the saddle racks this past fall... Rough interstate highways have about demolished all of ours... We put the saddles in the big quilted bags, and stack 6 bags in one wagon or cart, just stand them up on the end, withers end pointed down and stack them like dixie cups. Then we'll roll them up the ramp into the trailer... Get to the show and roll the wagons to the tack stall...

Those bags are money well spent if you want to keep a saddle clean and ready to show.

I agree 100% with gard about the saddleboss. I've got 4 in my trailer right now and they are great, saddles don't even move on them going down the road, they are shaped a lot like a horse's back.... I think that's what really sets them apart from some of the others. I'm about to get 2 more so I can carry a couple extra saddles with me sometimes.

I don't have a saddleboss but the saddle holders (I guess that's what you call the seat that holds the saddle) are very similar if not the same as what's in my Bison. We have no problems at all with the saddles moving or falling off of those. I would recommend the design.

How did you mount the Saddle Boss molds in your trailer?  Did you order the mounting pole from them or mount them on wood and screw them into the wall?

I guess we want the same things, I just started earlier than you did. I hope to add these racks to one of my trailers when it warms up. They can be mounted to the original framework, wood or most fabricated supports.

Best of luck   Gard

I'm going to use my original installed pole and brackets. According to the "Saddle Boss" web site, they offer an after market pole system to fit into various trailers. It looks like a universal design.

It would be a simple and inexpensive matter, to fabricate a wood design with plywood gussets on hardwood 2 bys. I don't know the price of the manufactured product.
