Things to keep in mind when buying a horse shed or horse stalls
- Since the horse sheds are custom built by the Amish you will want to plan ahead and order the horse building a month or two before you need it to insure that you will have your horses covered.
- Make sure your gate is at least 2' wider then the width of the horse barn so that there is enough room for the truck and trailer that delivers the horse shed to get into the field and place the structure in the desired location.
- Once you figure out exactly where you want the horse shed you will want to make sure it is level, this is really important if you get a tack room with a single door or horse stalls with the dutch door because a few inches of of level could mean the doors rub and don't operate properly.
- The last thing you will want to decide is how the horse building will be loaded on the trailer. If the opening or doors need to be on the driver side or passenger side. It slides off of the rear of the trailer so you want to make sure when it slides off the door or opening is facing the correct way.
