Horses Are Your Passion, Equestrian Stables Are Ours
Morton Buildings understands the importance of providing a safe steel horse stable for your cherished horses. Stable management is among the most important activities of a good horseman or woman, and the building’s arrangement very much affect this activity. Carefully planned, well-designed stall barns make horse care easier and add to personal satisfaction and riding enjoyment.
In planning a facility for horses, it’s essential to consider the health and safety not only of the animals, but also of the people who either come in contact with the animals and who live nearby. Other important considerations include sound construction, labor-saving conveniences, a building style in harmony with the surroundings, and a planning procedure that lists current and future needs.
Whether you plan to build for personal use or for a professional operation, the horse stable layout should provide room for expansion and allow for specific details, such as water supply, manure disposal, feed storage, exercise space, loading and unloading access and legal or other restrictions that may apply.
Caring for horses is hard work, but equine enthusiasts know that it’s worth the effort. When you’re considering a new equestrian stable, you can trust Morton Buildings is dedicated to helping you create a custom stall barn that is safe, attractive and promotes the health and well-being of your animals.
Unlike other metal horse stables, a Morton building is unique as your horses’ personalities. The facility style and features that you choose reflect your horse care philosophy and the passion you have for them. At Morton, we offer a variety of practical, timesaving features that help to enhance the health and safety of your equine. One key element is your building’s ventilation. Good ventilation can be achieved through fan-powered cupolas, vented sidewall overhangs, windows and doors. Safety is also important, which is why Morton stalls are strong and designed to keep your horses secure.
A variety of superior features and options are available to fully customize your steel horse stable:
Bar “M” Stalls feature powder coated paint, which means your stalls are not only strong, but will also remain looking like new for years to come.
Anodized Aluminum Stalls are corrosion resistant, making them a great choice even in the harshest climates.
Solid stall partitions offer resistance to kicking, absorb shock and can reduce fighting between horses. These types of partitions do not allow for ventilation.
Vented partitions offer some air movement between stalls but with limited visibility.
Pipe-grill partitions offer the most visibility and ventilation for your horses.
Hay lofts can be an economical storage solution and a great way to utilize all the space within your building.
Bite guards are metal trims that are placed on any exposed wood corners to protect against cribbing.
Stall stiffeners add strength to the outside stall partition, making it better able to withstand kicking and other damage horses can inflict.
Designating rooms and stalls for specific uses will ensure that your building functions the way you need. Adding vet stalls or wash stalls is beneficial for both horse and handler. Tack rooms, offices and restrooms are also popular choices to include whether your barn is for personal use or commercial boarding.
For those equestrian enthusiasts who have always dreamed of living with their horses, Morton Buildings living quarters can be attached to your stall barn to make your dream a reality. Our living quarters range from small apartments to single family residences that provide a quality home constructed to fit the way you and your family live.
