Barn Plan

Barn Plans - StableWise Gallery

Would this be suitable? I am hoping to find a place with a barn already built on it. But if there isn't this is what I am telling my Father to build. Its a nice barn I can add some stuff to it.

not to mention were gonna add another barn later on down the road. I have 2 horses at the moment that are at my Grandfathers house. Plus I am purchasing a horse and then my boyfriend is purchasing a horse.

But like I said, were hoping to have a barn already built on it. But dad said, if there isn't we will build a barn.
and we can afford it FYI. :)

I would definitely try to add in a small tack/feed room somewhere.
I'm a little confused - what is the "shelter" area supposed to be? Like, is it a covered area in a paddock/field that is attached to the barn?

It looks good! I agree with adding a tack room, but I also might add a shelter on the other side too.

Oh of course :) I plan on doing a lot more then that a office and a bathroom and then possibly some more stalls :) A wash stall and a area to tack up.

And I plan on making a tiny out door arena or area to ride in.

I personally won't consider stalls any smaller than 12x12 except for small ponies. Tack storage, as previously mentioned, is needed.

Just keep in mind that depending on what you're going to be doing in the arena/area, you need a minimum space and correct footing - not to mention fencing.

What about something like this, with a 10' lean-to coming off the sides?

Do you need a hay storage area also?

Also... depending on how many children you are planning on teaching even in one week, you will have to consider how many schoolhorses you have; according to your plans it sounds like you will only have the one? If so, you are going to be very limited on your time, as the horse needs rest and days off. Just something to consider when you're planning out how many stalls you want to have.
Where is your tacking-up area? What is the footing going to be (especially important in tack-up area with children/beginners around)? Bedding?
All things to consider.
