Our plan is to take the best design and function elements from two or our existing models to create the Hybrid series of tack trunks/lockers.
Lund Saddlery's proven line of tack trunks and lockers have been in use extensively by riders in all English disciplines with positive results and feedback in terms of overall design, function and quality.
We feel that that the basic chassis of the existing Traveler and Classic tack trunks will provide an excellent foundation to build upon, with the end result being a unique combination of design and cosmetic improvements that are in tune with the hunter/jumper, eventing and dressage communities current expectations.
Using the current Traveler and Classic tack trunks as a palette, we will implement step by step changes over the course of 4 design prototypes during a 6 to 8 week period. All aspects of tack trunk design will be taken into account in determining which changes/improvements will be implemented during the prototype phase to provide the user with the best combination of design/materials/specifications and function.
We are pleased with the chassis of the current Traveler and Classic tack trunks/lockers but see the possibilities of merging certain aspects from both of these existing products into something special.
Basic design concepts and sketches will move into the process of employing technology that includes AutoCAD, G code programming and the use of a 3 axis CNC router to cut out all required pieces for assembly.
We find that 3 to 4 prototype design/cut/assemblies are required to get the drawings and 3 axis programming production ready.
The Funding will be used to assist Lund Saddlery through the crucial first 3 to 4 prototype phases of the design process of the Lund Hybrid tack trunk/locker.
Risks and challenges
As a current supplier of high quality, value priced tack trunks, we feel that Lund Saddlery is well positioned to see this project through from start to finish.
We will utilize our current manufacturers/suppliers and will implement the same proven step by step initial concept through to market ready process used to launch all of our current line up of quality tack trunks/lockers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
