Nestled in the vibrant countryside of Nashville is the wonderful town of Franklin, Tennessee. Our team recently finished a project of a newly-completed barn that is a custom-designed retreat for Icelandic horses. We worked with our clients to help strike a balance between functionality and a sophisticated aesthetic. Each component in this horse barn is tailored to the specific needs of its lucky equine residents.
European Stall Fronts: Open & Airy
As we step into this barn, the first element that catches the eye is the custom, hinged Horse Stall Fronts (otherwise known as European Stall Fronts). Each Stall Front features a "low" European design with a horizontal tube running across the Stall Front. This "low," straight design serves two purposes. Firstly, it provides its Icelandic horse residents the ability to socialize and feel part of the larger barn. Secondly, it provides a clean, modern aesthetic that blends with the rest of the barn.
Each horse stall front is also designed with full mesh across the bottom. This provides our clients with unparalleled visibility into the horse stall – allowing one to spot even the tiniest of hooves. Visibility is crucial with all horses, but especially smaller breeds such as Icelandic Horses, shetland ponies, and miniature horses.
The mesh design also serves to enhance ventilation, a crucial feature in the warm, humid summers of Tennessee. Moreover, it aids in odor control. Why? This is because an open, mesh design efficiently flushes out gases like ammonia that tend to settle at the bottom of the stalls. The mesh design allows for a healthier, safer environment for its equine residents.
Lastly, each European Stall Front includes a welded HVH wood design across the center and bottom of each horse stall. The HVH section is a welded section ready for a lumber in-fill. This inclusion helps provide warmth and color to the powder coated steel across the rest of the horse stall front.
Large, Comfortable Spaces for Equine Residents
The barn fosters a warm, friendly, and social atmosphere with its low European-style fronts, encouraging interaction among the horses. Each Stall Front and Stall Partition is 12' wide making for a 12'x12' horse stall.
The Stall Partitions also mirror a similar design with 1-inch round bars across the top, enhancing both ventilation and socialization. Each horse stall system is filled with Southern Yellow Pine lumber that is tastfully stained.
Warm & Inviting Interior Design Choices
Our client's choice in interior design showcases a thoughtful use of contrasting wood stains, adding depth and character to the space. Ambient lighting from gooseneck lamps and pendant lights bathes each stall in a warm, inviting glow, enhancing the barn's refined rusticity.
This barn is a testament to timeless elegance, offering a sophisticated and functional sanctuary that caters to the unique needs of smaller horse breeds such as Icelandic horses. Our team enjoyed working with this family to bring their vision to a reality. We thank this client for choosing American Stalls to be a small part of their barn construction journey!
