Most horse owners and equestrians would agree that their horses are their happiest selves when outside. While we build the most beautiful stabling equipment, we are equally passionate about building the right environments for our equine friends outdoors. Horse paddocks and stall runs are one of the best ways to extend the security of a horse stall while providing your horse more square footage outside.
To begin, what is a horse paddock? Paddocks are enclosed spaces that hold horses. Some paddocks can be spread throughout a property while others can be directly attached to a barn. Regardless of their location, paddocks are usually smaller areas that serve a unique purpose for horse owners. In general though, horse paddocks provide your horses with a clean and safe area to enjoy the outdoors.
In this article, we would like to dive into a few key topics including the multiple use cases for horse stall runs, our sizing recommendations, and some product recommendations. This all is with the intent to build the safest and most practical environment possible.
Purposes – Horse Stall Runs
Size Recommendations – Horse Stall Runs
In interior horse stalls within your barn, we recommend a minimum size of 12'x12'. This horse stall size is usually sufficient for most horse breeds. However, larger breeds might be more comfortable in stall sizes such as 14x14, 16x16, 14x12, and so forth. When it comes to horse stall runs, we understand that your width will likely be very similar to the interior horse stall. However, we recommend to ideally triple the length of your runs. For example, a 12'x12' horse stall will translate into a 12'x36' horse stall run (432 sqft) attached to the barn while 12'x48' would be ideal.
