Mrs. Whit Prophet of Ontario Canada was kind enough to send pictures of her Basic Tack Trunk construction to Elite Tack Design. She purchased the plans in mid October and with the help of a friend, built this trunk for her daughter Rebecca and her horse Sheldon.
It was completed just in time for Christmas.
We were very impressed with the trunk finishing touches!
The trim and paint, this gives it a real quality look.
We would like to thank Whit and Rebecca for sharing their pictures with Elite Tack Design.
