    Unless they're redbacks (which are venomous to horses as well as people and tend to lurk in places where you put your fingers), here in Australia spiders are very welcome in any stable I'm in. They make a considerable difference to the fly an mozzie populations (just needed to look at the misery of the horses without spider friends, during the summer months) and good spiders like daddy longlegs, window spiders etc keep away the baddies like redbacks by eating the babies and even some adults that wander in. I just get rid of the cobwebs, leave the live webs in place unless they get in my way.
