A Checklist For Barn Maintenance

Owning a horse can be time-consuming and expensive, but for those who love horses, all of the work and money put into these animals are well worth it. Besides the pure enjoyment of owning a horse, they are still used today as work animals, and some ride horses to compete in sports such as rodeo and equestrian events. No matter what horses are used for, it is important that they are well cared for, which includes having ample shelter. While most horses do well outdoors, it is still important for them to have a place to go in cold or inclement weather, and depending on the horse and its needs, others stay indoors more often than being outside. These are all reasons it is important to practice proper barn maintenance. This checklist will serve as a guide to include all facets of horse barn maintenance, including keeping pests out of the barn, weekly and seasonal maintenance, the health and safety of a horse while staying indoors, barn organization tips, and making barn repairs.
