When you have horses, you have mud Anything you dump on it (e.g. gravel) helps for awhile, but will soon disappear into the mud quagmire. The only real solution is to start from scratch like you would in an arena (read $$$s)...strip it all off and put down a base with good drainage.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

I feed hay inside in Nibble Nets. They are easy to fill & you can hang them anywhere. They are tough too & keeps the horses busy.
A side opening on a run in will prevent a horse from getting trapped if being chased off by another horse entering.
If I had your set up I would hang bags on opposite sides on the inside of your building.
For mud control Ground Master makes a permeable floor which works very well when buried under a few inches of traffic bond or other small crushed stone. There are other permeable membranes that work well too for mud control.
How exciting for you!

We use old water tanks for hay feeders. I also have a couple of combine tires turned out sitting on plywood that are used for hay feeders.
