Stalls and Bedding

Horse stalls provide important shelter for a horse, and the right bedding makes that shelter comfortable. They are great for sheltering your horse when cold weather or rain, sleet, and snow hit. And also when the weather becomes too hot, they can get your horse out of an unrelenting sun. Your horse’s shelter should be warm during the winter and cool during the summer and always comfortable, with enough air flow and space. Horse caretakers will need to learn how to clean a stall, choose the right bedding, decide on whether mats are to be used, and more. Horse Illustrated‘s article archive helps owners make the right choices for their horse’s shelter.
