12 ft. is the norm for a run-in - mine is 14 ft., only because Home Depot (where all of the materials were purchased), doesn't carry 14 ft. 4x4's to make a 12 footer... one tidbit of advice that I'm glad I went with - have the builder also install Styrofoam insulation inside the roof (1 fanfold pink bundle will do it), and when it's raining hard outside, that muffles the sound and makes it very calm and pleasant inside....good luck! :)
*** Also, if you can, definitely make it a 3 1/2 sided run in which creates an awesome haven out of the weather - we could have a blizzard outside, and it's so calm in there, even with a full 7' opening in front. I just love mine, and so do my mares!!!
