If I was building one I wouldn't be asking, but this is for a colleague

Looks nice David. Are you going to make something similar, the same or
radically different than the one shown on the page above?
I haven't seen any that nice before. Most of the sadfdle racks I have seen
had been made from poles in the old, rustic western pole construction model.
Would such a narrow saddle rack tip over if you were to throw a saddle on it
or take it off?
Shouldn't be a problem. Typically you set the saddle down on top and lift it
up the same way - keeps the stirrups and riggin from hanging. I use the fold
up racks and I don't think they are any wider at the base than the one in
Might make one of these except a little narrower. If it tips over easily it
should dissuade the kids from riding the saddle when it's on the rack ;^)
Depends on your saddle. I think 2.5" is pretty standard, but your best
bet would be to measure your horse at his withers, and then just behind
his withers. If your saddle fits him make the rack to match.
I made one for a good friend who rides hunter-jumpers. It is a
little different. We call it the "horse of a different color".
She thinks we should maybe go into business - what do you think?
