Some beautiful set ups here!!

I'll have to go out and take pics of ours. In a nutshell, we have three box stalls, a tack room and a good sized area for hay. The paddocks have small shelters, and the biggest pen has a run in barn that should probably be renovated. We have two outdoor arenas, the smaller one has a trail course set up. And we have a round pen, but no indoor arenas, unfortunately. :( We also have two large pastures and a hay field.

I've been working on fixing up the inside of my barn, so maybe I'll finally post pictures of it now LOL.

The four stalls we have up now...the one on the left is getting a new door tonight. I can't stand that door, plus that horse loves to have her head hanging out. The other sliding door is staying the same because the 2 yr old is in there & I don't want her swinging her head all about.

This is my newly done tack area (right next to the stall that the bay horse is sticking her head out of in the first picture) it still has a lot of work to be done and saddle racks/hooks to be put up but that's how far I got the other day.

Here's mine. It's old and seen better days but it's mine (I don't share well lol) and has all the things I need. I have 12 stalls in the main barn + a large foaling stall in the indoor arena that is attached to the stall barn, tack room, indoor washrack, outdoor arena.
Front part is stall barn, back is indoor arena, to the right of the barns is the outdoor arena.

My beat up old stalls, each has it's own light, electrical outlet and tie ring.
Tack room, storage lockers (and last year's prego lacey)

Mine is not real fancy and still needs some work such as electricity and running water...

This is my set up.

First the outside. All of the split rail you see has been since redone and is much sturdier than it was.


The barn is actually a big 24x18 run in with an automatic waterer. That is on the other side of where the stairs are. The rest that you see here is a feed/tack combo room. I was also given a 3 tier saddle rack which is now where the wooden saddle rack in the picture is.


The cabinets came from our kitchen. DH put them up and built the workbench after we ripped them out of our kitchen.

Thanks! It will probably be very slow going but next summer/spring we plan on framing in a gap on one side, and then cutting a large door in one end of the barn.

We were thinking about using stone dust (Like the really ground down grey stuff- its pretty cheap) for the aisle and the stall footing. Will this work well for occasional use?

We are also going to build up the area next to the barn that was shown and someday it might make an arena :)

For those of you saying about your barns are old or whatever.... just a friendly reminder, those of us who board would give our right arms for your older barns in need of renovation.

I board, this is what it looks like

Barns aren't completely necessary here, very little harsh weather. Shade and lots of water is really all that's needed. So this is my setup, two small covered stalls and a large covered stall, a hay shed, and another shade to the left of the stalls that's out of the picture. The second picture is the view out into the pasture. The goats are seperate from the horses now, but when we first moved in Red just wanted to play with them, but they would just run away from him. This isn't exactly mine though. I rent the pasture from a very nice man that charges me a flat rate no matter how many horses I have. The stalls were put there by the people who rented the pasture before me, so the setup is mine to do with as I please. My horses are only a half mile down the road from my house, so the only way I could be happier is if they were in my backyard.
