Many horses dislike being stabled. Designing a wonderful stable won't make your horse happy, but will make looking after your horse easier for you, and the space will be comfortable and safe for you and your horse.
Box Stalls or Loose Boxes
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. Large 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.

Stall doors can be either swinging or sliding. In either case, there should be latches that undo easily, but that horses cannot tamper with. Many stall Houdinis have escaped and let out a few friends for an overnight stable ransacking. That ends up a clean-up headache for the owner, as well as a possible safety and health hazard for the horses.
Swinging doors should open out into the alley, and be kept shut at all other times. They should fasten securely shut so horses don't escape. Sliding doors should slide smoothly. Grain room doors should be locked. Doors should be at least 4 ft (1.2m) wide.
