Standing stalls?

What do ya'll think about them? I seem to like them but I was wondering about everyone else. I am thinking about building some...

the only time I've seem them used effectively was at a rental stable where they were put waiting to be saddled and ridden.

Aside from that I don't like them because it just doesn't give the horse a chance to move around.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

You see them a lot with draft horses, particularily with farmers who have draft horses. They teach the horse a lot of manners and a lot abou personal space. The only problem I have with them, is that the horse is just standing in manure and urine and usually end up with a never ending battle of founder, even if you clean out their hooves every day.

Not a fan. I want my horses to be comfortable when they have to be in their stalls, so the bigger the better as far as I'm concerned.

My stalls are 10' X 24'. Did I mention I want my horses to be comfortable?

Hate em. They're too small even to tack up in comfortably. The only time I could see them being used is to separate horses that are normally kept on pasture at feeding time.

God yes, thank you. Where was my head at yesterday? I meant Thrush. And then if they have it long enough, you get White Line Disease and t's just a never ending battle. Thrush. Not founder! Sorry! My grandfather has standing stalls and his two horses have thrush really bad. I try to take care of their feet when I can, but, he's an old farmer who doesn't pay much attention besides making sure they have a fresh pair of shoes in every 6 weeks.

I have seen them used very effectively at a large farm that does pasture only but likes to seperate to feed, he has a long row of standing stalls. It's so cute, all the girls know where they belong and at around 4 start moseying over there.

No problem with them.

They are an affective and safe way to stable a horse.
Not uncommon at lesson barns for the lesson horses.

There is enough room for the horses to lay down and get up and adjust position forward and backward. Hay and water are in front of them.


I knew a lesson horse that when moved to a box stall she would get cast every time she laid down. In her straight stall she had not problem getting up and down.


They are not a good stabling situation for a horse that does not get regular use and/or turn out.

Exactly. We built them at the end of our indoor arena for the special needs feed horses. Typically go back out after eating, but can stay in.

The horse eats and can lay down - not on it's side but it does get them out of the elements. No chasing manure, it's all right there when I clean.

We call them tie stalls.
