What Is a Horse Run-In Shed?
Run-in sheds are three-sided buildings that allow a horse to take shelter from the wind, snow, and sun when they’re out to pasture. Customers have turned to us for years to meet all of their needs for run-in sheds for horses. Our loafing sheds for horses are known for their quality, and all of our prefab horse run-in sheds are delivered fully assembled, which means that you can start using these horse run-in sheds immediately upon delivery. However, all of the prefab horse run-in sheds we carry are also portable, meaning that if you need to move your 3-sided shed for any reason, you won’t have any trouble. This is useful during the changing seasons, as you might want to face the structure away from the wind or the heat of the sun. You can also move a 3-sided shed to a whole new property if necessary.
