Our stalls are HiQual brand. We actually bought them in Canada years ago when the exchange rate was better for the USD and hauled them home ourselves.

We will start with two 12'x12' stalls and a tack room but can add 2 or 3 more stalls later. Since the floor is dirt, we plan to bring in some tamped road crush and lay rubber mats in the stalls and rubber paving blocks in the centre aisle. Concrete is crazy expensive here and the prep to ensure it doesn't crack in our cold climate is extensive. We also have the issue of traction in the winter, as any moisture or any snow tracked in will freeze and become very icy. My neighbour uses the rubber pavers in his barn and is very happy with them.

I will check with Priefert to see if they have any dealers in Western Canada. So far, I haven't seen any. If we were closer to the border, I'd go and pick up stall kits myself, but we are a good 6 hours north of the border and further yet to any major US centres, so finding something locally made makes sense.
I'd look at least 3' clear panels if not 4'. We were going to do 2' also but just did not let the light we wanted in. With 4' clear panels you don't even have to have a single light on in the barn. Even the loft is fully lighted. Our builders did it for no additional cost. They recommended not putting it on the roof since over time it would leak. We have a 1' overhang around all sides of the barn and the clear panel is all the way up so no way to leak.

While your getting your road crush think about adding a 10x10 area around your doors so you don't track as much mud into your barn and not walking in mud right outside the doors.

I looked at the rubber bricks too but talked to several people that have them and they don't like that the dirt, urine and other stuff gets down between them. You might be better off putting the road crush in the isle and just using rubber mats.

What are the prices like on those? We're re-doing our barn and are debating between building partitions and stall fronts with tongue-and-groove and buying. There's a few dealers two hours from me.

We have these at my friend's place where my horse is. Yes they are horseproof as far as getting out but you CAN knock them off the track at the bottom. Ask my moron of a horse, went out to feed and his door was completely off at the bottom and was a PIA to put back on.

I hate the feeders. Half the time the hay slides onto the floor before I can get the door slammed shut (we feed from 4x4x8 bales so it's not in flakes).

That all being said, I love those stalls.

Has to be either a different design than ours or the metal arm at the bottom is bent. There is no way it can come off without being bent. Not saying a 1,000 lbs horse couldn't bend the metal arm holding it in place at the bottom but it would take some force.

We do not have that problem with our feeders but our hay is very tightly bound and 70 lbs bales. If you had loose hay I can see that being a problem.

We used a company out of Indiana for our stall fronts. Our sides are wood, as are our floors. The wood is full dimension 2" oak, laid over about 6" of gravel, and so far, I really like it. We went to the Amish man's house that built the barn, and he even had 2 pigs in the stall, and it did not smell.

I wish I could help you out, it has been almost 15 years since we purchased them. I remember the fronts cost more than the side/back wall. I also remember getting some sort of deal because we bought a bunch of stuff all at once. For ours, we did not buy any pieces for the back wall though. They are attached directly to the barn posts. The inside wall of the barn is 8ft of tongue & groove board that matches the stall boards.

With these stall kits, you still have to purchase the wood which can be costly. I did see one outfit, that went cheaper and built an inner frame inside of the portion where you vertically slide boards. They then screwed no-climb wire fence to that frame. I will try to find a photo.
