Wash/ grooming/ tacking up stalls

Hey everyone,

How big should a wash/ grooming/ tacking up stall be for a 16hh horse? I have heard that they can be made too big and thus the horse can turn around in them making them dangerous. I have also heard that if they are too small they are also dangerous. Would a 10 X 12 be a good size?

Thanks in advance!

I don't have the answer to this question, but we have cross ties and a tie blocker ring on the back wall so you have a choice of which to use. I don't think a horse would ever be able to turn around in cross ties.

With a 16HH horse don't forget to think about ceiling height too.

At work ours are big enough to turn a 17.1hh warmblood stallion around in (its a bit of a tight squeeze, but he can do it easily). Once the horse is cross tied, they can't turn around anyway so I doubt they can be made too big.
These are the ones at my friends's yard and my work ones look similar in design and size to this, except the walls are metal and are lined with rubber.

They are about 1.5m (4'11) in width per bay and 2.5m-3m (8'2-9'10) in length.

I found some pics with horses in so you can see how they look size wise..

The grey is a 16hh TB and the black is a 16.1hh warmblood
