We clean them once a day. In the mornings the horses are grained and turned out to pasture. We clean the stalls and they're empty until dusk, when we bring the horses back in for their bedtime grain. Repeat process daily.

I have two stalls and two horses I am at a self boarding facility, they can come and go in their stalls as they please. I go down there to feed twice a day I usually clean them in the morning and if they mess them up again a clean them again.

My horse's pee in their stalls a lot so I have to put shavings in them every other day just about because my one horse started getting a sore on his leg from laying down ( I feel like such a bad mommy)

I have no Idea why but they feel the need to walk in their stalls from where ever they are to pee..LOL

I check Lacey's run-in for poo everyday and pick it out if there is any. However, this last week her buddies came home so she's been spending less time just standing in her run-in which equals no poop for me to pick up. Yay!

The barn I work at requires us to clean them once in the morning and once in the evening.

However with my own horses it just depends on how much poop is in the stall (we use pellets...gotta save those things as much as possible) and whether I can get the time or not. They are out almost 24/7 though, so it really doesn't matter. haha.

The stalls are cleaned daily where I board but I myself only clean the stalls like 1-3 times a week, so I voted Every other day/every few days.

I answered daily.
We don't really have stalls, because we keep our horses at home. But we do have a barn and when we let the horses come in because of the weather we clean it every day.

If ponies are out during the day and in at night then once a day (in the morning once they have been put out), If the ponies are spending the day in then 3 or 4 times per day.

I never leave a horse standing in a dirty bed for more then a few hours.

I also religiously poo pick my fields, we currently have gale force winds but I have been out poo picking this morning. Admittedly I could barely stand dup so havnt managed to do all that much but I have done a bit and will do more tommorow.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

My 3 horses and 1 full size donkey live at home with me. We have 4 box stalls, horses are in every night during the winter and stalls are cleaned every shavings are added where gelding and one of my mares are quite the pigs so quite a bit of new shavings are usually added other mare is fairly clean so usually just the shavings from the pee spots are removed and replaced...same with the donkey. Regardless all stalls are completly cleaned and new shavings laid down once a week.

I board and am the only boarder on my trainers place. We have 20 box stall barn with 100 tie stalls. There are times when the stalls dont get cleaned for a day or two but 3 days is usually the max. The trainer doesnt live on the property and has lots of side buisness on the go so its hard for him to go every day to just clean stalls. So if im there and notice they are in dirty stalls I either clean them or move them to a clean stall and have the trainer do it later. Tie stalls are used for horses cooling down so they normaly dont get very dirty so I always clean up right after bringing my horse out
