How to keep up my horse's stall?

I wanted to clean up my mare's stall next time I visit and was wondering where to start? It has spiderwebs, holes under the breezeway door, dust, ect. Any tips? Thanks !

Give it a good hosing if you can. Spray the walls with bleach water first then rinse. Or grab a broom and sweep everything and wear a mask.

I, too, like to hose or power wash stalls when weather allows.

If you can't, then I use a broom. First sweeping top down, then back to front. Even in the winter, if it is over 30F and a stall has filth on the walls, I'll use a broom and bucket of hot soapy detergent and scrub down the walls. I only do that, though, if I have another stall to put the horse in until its' stall is dried.

I refill holes and tamp them with a tamping bar.

Love a clean barn!
