    They are standing stalls. I wouldn't think they're very popular anymore for general boarding but some horse transporters will have them.

    As CM said, they are still used today, though backed in stalls are usually only short stay stalls, as there is no manger.

    Very nice barns may have them.

    The campgrounds in MO where we went trail riding had what we called tie stalls. Much like what Littlebird posted except there wasn't a wooden floor and it was a row of them with a roof but only a manger in front, no wall. I hated them, horses were always getting caught under the manger when they laid down. I can't even count how many times one of those stalls had to be ripped apart to get a horse up over the years. Thankfully, never one of mine but I only used the stall if it started pouring rain, otherwise they were on a high line.

    I used to work at a lesson barn, where they had several stalls like this. Some had a door or a pole that was pushed across the entrance to close it, in some the horses were tied - including the horse I bought later on. The horses were not happy in these stalls, yet they stood there at least 8 hours a day. I hope that practices have changed there since I left that place...

    Oh yes, we still have those in some stables in Ireland.

    When I worked at Disneyland, we had tie stalls for some of the drafts (similar to Allison Finch's pic above, just not as fancy). We had box stalls and large dry paddocks, too. Horses all rotated based on their work schedule. The tie stalls were large enough and well bedded for the horses to lie down. I honestly didn't think tie stalls are all that unusual. Is it the most optimum option for horsekeeping? Maybe not, but in a limited space, with proper management and alternative options for rotation, I don't see it as that big of a deal.
