– WHAT’S IMPORTANT WHEN YOU’RE BUILDING A HORSE BARN? –
When you’re having your barn built, you’re going to want to consider three important elements:
1. Stalls and Placement
When you plan the barn, you need to consider the stall size. Not only does it determine how many stalls you can have in your barn, but it also needs to be sturdy enough to be comfortable and safe for your horses. It’s always safer to go larger than smaller when you’re determining the dimensions.
If you’re keeping your horse in its stable for more than 12 hours at a time, it’s a good idea to increase the stall size. Specialized stalls should also be increased in size by at least half of the recommended measurement for the type of horse you’re building for.
As for placement, your team will be happier having stalls across from each other. This allows your horses to socialize while inside the barn and feel the security of the herd. Don’t forget to leave your barn aisle wide enough for your farm equipment, though!
Q&S Construction is happy to help you plan out your barn to ensure the stalls are placed best and are the correct size.
2. Additional Storage Rooms
You’ll need space for horse tack, horse feed, and barn tools. While the horses take up plenty of space, the stuff takes up even more. Make sure you have plenty of storage rooms and room for shavings and bedding, drying racks, wash stalls, and more. You’ll need tack rooms, tool rooms, and feed rooms.
