Horse Shed Shelters and Horse Stalls

Horse Stalls and Horse Sheds

12x24 horse shed shelter

Buying a horse run in shed shelter or horse stall barn for you horse is an important investment for your horse or horses.  Alan's Factory Outlet horse shed is made portable and delivered to your field fully assembled in a modular structure ready for your horse to start enjoying instantly.  This is a smart way to go if you may need to relocate the horse building as they can be dragged with 4 heavy duty tow hooks one in each corner of the horse shed.  The outside of each horse shed is made with 1" thick eastern white pine board and batten siding.  There is an option to get it stained or you could stain it yourself whichever way you prefer.  They are all oak framed with a 4' high oak kick board to withstand the horse kicks. 

Two choices you will need to decide is what size of a horse building you will need.  There are many different sizes horse sheds for a small or large size 1, 2, 3 and 4 horses.  Of course if you have more than 4 horses no problem we can just delivery a second or third building right away or at a later date.

The other factor is if you want to go with the horse run in shed shelter which allows for the horse to freely roam inside and outside of the protection of the shed.  Or you may want to get it made as a horse stall barn which comes with 4' dutch door which you can open all of the way, just open the top half for air flow or fully close it.

One other option which you can add to either the run in sheds or horse stalls and that is a tack room.  Keep in mind you can even could also just add a run in shed and horse stall or you could get a combination of all three.  The tack room can go on one end or in the middle you get to pick the layout of the shed row horse barn.

The horse shed comes with a framed out opening or two depending on the size.  The horse stalls along with the dutch door comes with a window with a metal grill.  The stalls also have a chew guard along the top of the 4' high oak kick board and on the door where the horse could chew if left unprotected.  The horse shed shelters are built with a metal roof and on the stall barns since they don't get as much air flow the metal roof is insulated.

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.

Want to get an idea on the cost of the horse buildings.  Here are Alan's Factory Outlet horse shelter prices and the horse stall barn prices.

Alan's Factory Outlet Amish made board batten pine wood custom horse barns are delivered to your field fully assembled and ready for your horse or horses.

As you can see the custom built wood horse barns and wooden run in sheds are made in a wide variety of different sizes to fit your horse or horses needs today and in the future.  The ready built horse barns are made with a heavy duty oak kick board to with stand the kicks of your horse and also made portable with 4 tow hooks on the corners to you can move it later if you want by dragging it.

For the exact sizes and prices available check out the horse barn prices.

The current average lead time to get horse barn built and delivered is currently 4 to 6 weeks, of course this could go up or down, but the key point is to plan ahead and allow some time to buy a horse barn before the winter season arrives since the horse shelters are custom built upon ordering.  This is probably the number one thing we hear from people who are ordering a horse barn during the autumn months is they wish the would of ordered a little earlier in the season and are worried about a early snow storm coming and not having the horse stall or horse run in sheds in time the the bad weather.

Custom Horse Barn Options

  • Metal roof or architectural shingles
  • Tack room
  • Run in sheds
  • Gable vents or ridge vents
  • Feeder or hay rack
  • Cupola and weather vane
  • Extra Windows
  • Getting more space with a Modular 2 Story Horse Barn

The two story horse barns come with a hay loft for maximum storage.

These are just a few options most people consider.  Also keep in mind the horse buildings do not come stained but you can get it custom built with a stain.  If you buy it with a stain you will get to pick the color and another choice you get is the metal roof color or shingle color.  The metal roofs on the horse barn come insulated to help keep the horse cooler.

One thing you will want to make sure is you have a level area for the horse barn to be placed so the dutch doors operate properly.  Since there are 2 doors that open and shut separately they can rub or not work if the pad area is not level.

Each stall can tack room comes with a window so you can select the exact location for the window to be placed which usually will be opposite of the doors or you could place them on the end.  Another option that a few of our customers have done is add an extra single door on the back side of the horse structure so for example if they have a fence or are getting a fence put up the will have the horse building serve as a fence but so they can access the horse barn from the other side of the fence they will add a single entry door for ease of use.

Alan's Factory Outlet modular wood horse barns and prefab horse run in sheds are delivered in all of Virginia and West Virginia with free local delivered in 21 local counties in VA and WV.  

You've asked for it and we've listened, another option we have just started by popular demand on the horse barns is a hinged 8' lean to which is now available on the horse barns and run in sheds.  This lean to package comes in two different options, as a lean to kit or fully assembled if you want us to assemble it for you.

Wood Horse Sheds and Metal Horse Sheds

Horse Sheds, Horse Barns and Run in Sheds

horse sheds 

Alan's Factory Outlet horse sheds are built in a wood or metal horse shed.  The above picture is a wood horse barn with a run in shed, tack room in the middle and a horse stall on the other end.  The horse shed sizes and horse barn prices are all listed on the website.  The wood horse sheds all have a 4' high oak kick board where the metal horse sheds are just framed out with metal tubing and sheeting on the outside so you will want to reinforce the metal horse sheds on the inside to protect the building if and when the horse kicks it.

The wood horse sheds are Amish built and delivered fully assembled.  The horse sheds are delivered in Virginia and West Virginia.

The metal horse sheds are built with a lean to on each side.  If you need several stalls the metal horse sheds are going to be more economical than the wood horse sheds however again you will need to build the divider walls and a kick board.  The standard length starts out 21' long (actual base length is 20' long) with a 12' wide center portion and the lean to is also 12' wide on each side.  So this would give you a 12x20 center run area and 4 10x12 stalls once you put a divider wall up in the middle of the lean to. 

The metal lean to horse sheds are delivered and setup in 19 different states.
