Barn Safety | By: American Stalls | Date on: 11/20/2022

Each holiday season, we inevitably scratch our heads and ask, “what do I even get them?” Last year, we put together a list of four gifts to consider for any equestrian in your life. You can view that list here.

While that list consisted of items mainly for the home, we decided to put together another list of items to consider for the barn. This year’s list is full of no-frills items that are bound to garner appreciation months down the road. At some point, each item in this list is guaranteed to prompt the reaction, “thank God, I have this. I don’t know what I would do without it!” With that being said, let’s dive into our list of practical gifts for the special equestrian in your life!

Gift Idea 1 – The Bedding Blocker:

If you are a horsemen, it’s likely that you’ve spent one too many hours sweeping the aisles of your barn. Shavings and bedding somehow find their way from the horse stall into the indoor aisle. This is where our Bedding Blocker comes into play.

Low-profile design ensures that the Bedding Blocker seamlessly fits in your stall design

The Bedding Blocker is a shavings guard system that is exclusively designed for both interior and exterior horse stall doors. It is installed at the base of a door opening to keeping the shavings inside your horse stall. Our Bedding Blocker is guaranteed to save you valuable time cleaning and money on wasted shavings.

Gift Ideas 2 & 3 – Blanket Bars & Bridle Hooks

The Winter months are finally here! This means that tack and other supplies magically appear in larger quantities within the barn. Whether it is an increase in blankets, bridles, and everything in-between. We’ve all been in barns where it seems that there the tack may not be organized properly. Even when it is, it is often organized in a tack room tucked away in a corner of the barn. This is where mindfully installed Blanket Bars and Bridle Hooks come into play.

Our Bridle Hooks and Blanket Bars are mindfully designed to install seamlessly into your horse stalls. Each piece is built using the finest, heavy-duty materials. Our Blanket Bars are made using 1.3″ or 1.9″ round tubing. Our Bridle Hooks are machined in-house with 100% heavy-duty American galvanized steel. Our tack hardware allow the equestrian in your life to easily store and access necessary tack.

Gift Idea 4 – Pin Lock Latch

Although a small detail, your choice in latches can make the world of difference in your barn experience. Ask any equestrian that has been through an old barn with faulty latches. These are not only a safety risk, but they also waste your time with their inability to latch.

In contrast, our Pin Lock Latch is a state-of-the-art latching system built for sliding horse stall doors. They are machined from solid stainless steel to ensure strength in the daily rigors of a horse barn. Their stainless steel material also ensures longevity and rust protection. Most importantly though, our Pin Lock Latch is designed by horse people for horse people. This means that your latch will safely enclose your horses in their horse stalls.

Another great benefit is that you have the ability to visually confirm whether a stall is locked or not from any part of the barn. Simply stand in the aisle and determine whether the latch is angled or straight. If angled, you have visual confirmation that your horse stall door latch is secured in place.
