Steel Frame High Resistance Horse Stall Heavy Duty Free Drawing Customized
According to the Canadian Agri-Food Research Council, Recommended Code of Practice for The Care and Handling of Farm Animals, a loose box should be 10'X10' (3mX3m) to 12'X12' (3.6mX3.6m) for an average size riding horse. These are minimum recommendations. If you have the resources to build larger stalls, you can, of course, build them larger. Larger horses will appreciate the extra room to move around, so if you have a draft or draft cross, adding extra space will help them move freely, and lie down without feeling cramped.
Although the recommended size for a foaling stall is the same as a regular stall, many people like more generous sized boxes for mares and foals. The easiest way to provide roomy accommodations for mares and foals is to take the partitions out between two regular stalls. So you don't have to build a stall specifically to be a foaling stall. Even if you don't plan to have a foal, it is handy to design at least one stall with this in mind.
Standing or tie stalls need to be wide enough for a horse to lie down in comfortably. Depending on the size of the horse, they should be at least 4ft to 5ft (1.5m) wide and 8ft (2.4m) long. There is usually a manger for hay at the front of a standing stall, so the width of this should be considered. A pony will need a shorter and narrower standing stall than a larger draft breed, which again will need more space.
There will also need to be a sturdy structure to tie to. It should be high enough so the horse cannot get its leg over the tie rope, but still be able to reach feed and water.
In both standing and box stalls, the walls should be solid, sturdy lumber to at least 4.6ft (1.4m) high, and above that, grill or sturdy mesh so that horses can see each other. This also helps with ventilation and light.
Building a round pen for our equine friends can be an expensive proposition. Depending on the posts, rails, footing, and size of the round pen it can quickly add up to serious dollars. That being said, it is possible to build a round horse pen on a tight budget.
However, don't let this scare you off if money is an issue. For a temporary solution, they will work just fine. Spend an extra $15 to $20 and buy 4 inch pressure treated post for your gate posts. In a very short amount of time, you will be delighted that you did.
Consider landscape posts your lowest cost and a somewhat temporary solution. Remember, Rome wasn't built in a day! Landscape posts are an excellent way to get started building a horse round pen and later on, you can always upgrade your materials as your budget allows.
No matter what your management style or needs,the basic of a safe horse stall are the same. Many options that effect function and cost are available for horse stall features.
The size of the horse and the amount of time the horse spends in the stall help determine stall size. Larger horses require more square footage than do smaller ponies to be able to turn around, lie down, and get up comfortably. A 12-foot x 12-foot stall is the standard recommendation for a 1,000-pound horse. Many stables are successful with stalls slightly smaller than this, but walls less than 10 feet in length are not recommended. Generally, the stall wall length is 1 1/2 times the horse's length. The more time a horse spends in a stall or the more active it is, a larger stall size is justified. A divider between two standard stalls may be removed to allow more space for a mare and foal or a stall-bound horse.
