How to make a DIY horse saddle rack using a bucket. This wall mounted saddle rack is perfect and has storage space for grooming supplies!
I finally am working toward getting a horse! I’m SO EXCITED! Over the past couple of years, I’ve slowly been saving for fencing and a horse run in shed. This shed was delivered this month and I wanted to turn the “stall” into a functional tack room of sorts.
I’ll likely only have one horse so I don’t need much in the way of storage, with the exception of hay storage. But I’ll need one saddle rack to keep my saddle on, and an area to store brushes. This was PERFECT and did the trick!
Not bad for a $5 solution!

DIY Horse Saddle Rack from a 5 Gallon Bucket
Step 1: Measure where you want your saddle rack to be.
Step 2: Use washers or a piece of wood inside the bucket. This helps keep the screw head from going through the bucket once there’s weight on it.
Step 3: Screw in your bucket at the height you want it. You want to hit a stud (or thick wood). I used two screws.
Step 4: Add your supplies to the bucket!
