A popular and inexpensive solution for horse barns that is ideal for cold weather. Gable roof barns are easier and less expensive to build and provide excellent headroom for indoor mounting.

This design allows complete control of ventilation using breezeway barn doors, vents, and cupola's making it suitable for cool or warm climates. Typical wind directions should be considered when planning the site location and positioning of the barn for ventiliation.

These style barns provide the most usable space when accompanied by shed roof dormers and full lofts. This design provides the ultimate in flexibility when customizing your barn. Feed and hay storage using gable barns is simple and easy.

Horse barns with raised center aisle construction are slightly more expensive but provide a stylish split level roof design, excellent ventilation, and superior lighting.

Paddocks are often included on both sides of this barn configuration. A hay loft for storage of hay and feed is typical for this configuration.

Raised center aisle barns include either single or double breezeways allow indoor mounting and double breezeways provide more stalls for space limited situations. Easily allows horses to be groomed, fed and tacked without leaving the barn.

Barns planned on narrow strips of land typically call for a shedrow barn.

A shedrow barn is best suited for warmer climates and can be constructed in a straight, L shaped, or U shaped configuration.

Since the shedrow uses a gable type roof with a generous overhang your horse will have a protected area and you have plenty of space for working around the barn.

Excellent ventilation, natural lighting, same side turnout, and unrestricted views of the horses are all attributes of shedrow barns.

Stable Odor
Nobody loves the smell of ammonia in the morning..afternoon, or night. Stable odor from feces also attracts flies, which lay eggs and can promote maggot growth.

Regular cleaning and ventilation is a must. Zeolite, found in many types of cat litter, is purported to be a non toxic way to absorb smells and dampness. Any natural desiccant that is non toxic will make your stalls less hospitable for infestation by insects and other unwanted creatures.
