I have the solid doors you are talking about but I only keep mine in at night during winter, after that they come in to eat and go right back out.

I prefer these gaurds to the ones pictured above because I have a few that will go under or through them.


I like stall gaurds alot for the summer. Especially when they are in for grooming or waiting for the vet.

I like the full doors at public facilities because it keeps peoples hands off them! It also helps to keep them from cribbing, although if there is a will... there is a way...

I plan on getting them for my horses this summer. But like I said, I don't leave mine in when it's warm and during the winter everything is shut tight for warmth...

Solid walls all the up, but bars for the front of the stall and top of the stall door, with barred windows on the back wall.

If you go with completely solid everything, there's no ventilation.

I can't imagine a completely solid barn. That's not very healthy for the animals.

Farmpony- I was at a barn were they would not allow those kind of stall guards, after one of their lesson ponies got her foot stuck in them.

We have solid doors in our barn but ours are designed different than what I see here. Ours have the stall doors together and the feeders together. So essentially, if both stalls had only stall guards, then the horses in both stalls would be able to reach each other. We used to have a lot of studs come and go through here so solid doors were a must.

Ours have the basic setup like these but with solid doors and walls.

I had my foot broken because of non-solid doors - Stalled horse reached out and bit the horse I was leading, who half-reared and landed on my foot. Not fun!

All the barns I've kept horses in had tall doors. I very much dislike horses hanging over stall door, hassling horses led in the aisles. If people like horses having the ability to "hang out" find a barn with openable outside windows.

That's why I LOVE my dutch doors. When the horse's are alone in the barn, they can hang their heads out and such. My doors are situated in a way that they cannot reach each other. All doors are on the left side of the stall so there is no chance of biting or harassing between horses. It's great!

When boarding I definitely preferred solid doors (and walls, had one of my horses tail chewed off by a neighbor horse once) but for my own barn, at home amongst my own animals, I like open top doors.

The walls are not solid all the way up.

The stall walls are approx 4ft high, then bars the rest of the way to the ceiling. Door is actually solid however. There is ample ventilation, the stalls are 14x16.
