securing stalls?

We have 4 very nice priefet stalls, we have plywood walls around 4 and a half feet off the ground. My horses each have a stall, my paint has the one closet to the feed farthest from the end wall. My Qh is next to keep the two from fighting. My moms horse is next against the wall. My QH pushed the two stalls from the wall (his and codys) so it comes out 2 feet. And cody pushed the stall devider in on harleys stall. While Flash stood in his stall and waited to be let out. I've been triny to figure out the best way to keep the stalls to the wall! We are going to put up another plywood around the back wall and part way down the sides. I've been thinking of different things but I want it to be as strong as posible!

Any ideas? We are hoping to get this done by spring.

Generally you would use a very large bolt and bolt it to the posts of your building, or you anchor them into the floor. It is hard to say without some photos or more information.

These are my stalls when we put them up. The last wall was all wood and really heavy! They are setting on wood, and have sawdust in them that are really nice and deep.

I see you didn't buy the back frames for the stalls. That could potentially be your problem. How thick is the plywood? I don't think it is recommended to use a single sheet of plywood as the back wall with a pole-barn type building. A horse could easily kick through it and get a nasty cut from the metal siding.

It looks like there is an odd distance between your poles. Do you know the building dimensions and at what footages the posts were set? When we built our barn part of the pole distance was determined by our stall sizes. I do not have back walls, but we put tongue & groove 2x6's from floor to ceiling. The stall side walls are then secured to the back with 4 bolts. I think those bolts are 9in lag bolts. The front walls hook together and the two ends are secured with the same bolt type.

Did you buy the wall mounts for the priefert stalls? Did the dealer offer to help you design how they should be used in the building set up that you have? I would suggest you have the dealer help you some. Leaving them unattached could damage the panels or even hurt one of your horses.

The place is 56 by 64. That's the 56 side. The people who put it up messed it up and so the distinces between poles are messed up that's why we put plywood up. Also to keep it warmer, and to have a wall. The stalls are for bad bad weather, if someones hurt, or feeding oats. They are in them for 20ish minutes a day. Im not sure how thick it is but its really heavy and seems a lot thinker then normal stuff, dad got it.
We got the stalls from a old boarding barn that didnt have back walls either (all the barns I go to don't have back walls either unless they are back to back..)

I don't know what part of the country your in,But if you have saw mills any where around you.Stop at one and see if they can cut you hard wood 1" thick and use that on your walls. That will be much stronger and most likely not cost any more.I'm also thinking get pens where you like them pin them to the ground.Get some 3/4" rebar say 24" long and drive it in the ground do that in a couple of places per pin and I think it will hold them in place.

pushing, stalls
