Posted by Alan Bernau Jr on Sat, Jul 7, 2012

What to look for when buying a horse run in shed?

buying a run in shed

                                    Horse Run in Shed with a Tack Room

As you can see in this picture when buying a horse run in shed you can buy it even if you don't have a horse.  They can be used to store equipment and the since the horse run in shed come with a 4' high oak kick board should you get a horse at a latter date you are ready to begin letting the horse use it as a shelter without having to make any altercations to it.

The horse run in sheds are built by the Amish and come with 1" thick eastern white pine board batten siding.  The interior of the structure is framed with oak framing.  An optional stain is available or you can stain it yourself once it is delivered into your pasture.  They come with a metal roof or a single roof same price either way.  The run in horse shelters do not have a floor.  The tack room comes with a 2" by 8" tongue and groove plank floor.  When you add a storage room on you can have it with a metal grill or a solid wall between the 2 sections.  The storage rooms also have a 3' single door and a wood slider window which slides side to side.  Tack rooms now come with a 2' swinging door so you can go back and forth between the run in shed and tack room without exiting the building.

Due to the opening on the run in shed which creates airflow the run in sheds do not come with wooden gable vents but you can add them just like the customer did in the above picture.

The horse run in shed is great if you want to freely be able to store things under it or want your horse to be able to go in and out when the horse wants to.  Sometimes you will want to have it fully enclosed and than you will want to go with the modular horse barn that comes with a 4' wide dutch door and have a window with the metal grill so the horses do not kick out the window.  Another feature that the horse barns at Alan's Factory Outlet come with is a metal chew guard around the top of the 4' oak kick board.  If you go with the standard metal roof on the horse barn it comes with an insulated metal roof this is on the stalls since there is not the large opening on the run in shed we do this to help keep it cooler for the horses.

The portable run in shed are made with a pressure treated 6"x6" foundation with 4 heavy duty tow hooks if you need to drag it from on end of the field to the other.

Key points about what to look for when buying a horse run in shed

  • Is the fence the horse run in shed will be delivered through be at least 2' wider than the size of the run in shed (This is if it is a straight back in delivery, sharper turns need more width clearance) and do I have at least 14' high clearance
  • Does the run in shed I'm looking at have an oak kick board so the building will be sturdy enough but more importantly be safe for the horse
  • Make sure you get the right size run in shed, for the average size horse you will want to go with a 10x12 size usually for one horse.  If your getting it for 2 horses a 10x20 is usually a good size but of course you can go a little smaller or larger depending on your horses preferences
  • A level area is also important especially if you get the tack room which has a single door or a stall with the dutch doors which can rub or be tough to open and close if it is not level.  You could put down a fine stone dust or just place it right on the ground

Portable Horse Barns

Do you have horses in a field and are looking for a shelter for your horses? The purchase of a portable horse barn can be a great addition to you horse's comfort. An Amish built wood horse barn, that can be moved from one side of the field to the other, could be the answer. These portable wood horse barns are built with a heavy duty 6"x6" base with tow hooks to help drag it if you ever need it moved. The ease of moving your portable barn is an added bonus when you buy from Alan's Factory Outlet.

The portable horse barns come with a stall which has a 4' wide Dutch door, a window with metal grill, and an oak kick board with a steel chew guard at the top to help prevent the horses from chewing off the top of the kick board. The siding on the wooden horse barns is 1" thick eastern white pine board and batten siding. Oak framing is used for the interior structure of the barn. They come standard with an insulated metal roof on all of the stalls or a shingle roof is available.

Wood horse barns are made in a variety of sizes to accommodate: 1 horse with a 1 stall horse barn or 2 stall, 3 stall, or even 4 stall horse barns. Not all horses are the same size so the stalls come in different sizes for the right fit for your horse. The most popular size horse barn for each horse is 10x12 but you could get one smaller such as a 10x10 or larger with a 12x12. If you have more than 4 horses we can make a 2nd delivery and put them end to end as close as possible. This is another way that the wooden horse barns we have available for order will meet your needs.

Many different options are available such as adding a horse run in sheds to the stalls. Another thing some people like to add is one or more tack rooms. Customizing your portable horse barn to suit the number of horses you own and their needs is easy. Browse our online selection of portable barns for sale to find one to meet your requirements.
