Horse barns are complicated entities with tons of things to know about them, such as safety recommendations, types of barns, how to build one, how to maintain one, how to add amenities, purchasing and maintaining farm equipment, how to reduce pests and critters and thus reduce the chance for disease, seasonal considerations and clean-up and maintenance, conservation of resources, avoiding hazards, restoring an older barn, and much more. Equine facilities house precious, and often expensive, inhabitants. The best horse barns are safe, functional, stylish, clean, airy, and have healthy occupants. Regardless of how perfect a barn can seem, there is always room for improvement in some area. Learn more about where you can improve with Horse Illustrated‘s articles, and take tours of various equine facilities.
