Space of horse stable equipment: Horses and carers need plenty of space for livestock shelters, but too much space adds unnecessary expense. But the following items must be arranged in roofed buildings: horse stables, indoor corridors, saddles, equipment and storage of hay, bedding and feed. Some functional rooms can be scattered in different buildings.
Safety for horse: Good design and construction of horse shelter keeps horse safe from unnecessary danger.
Remove the pointed bulges from horse stable.
Horse stable door, horse door and passage are provided with sufficient space for the safe passage.
In addition, architectural design characteristics should be consistent with horse behavior.
Floor to ceiling height of horse house: The low ceiling not only obstructs ventilation and lighting, darkens the barn, and may even harm safety of horse.
In general, the height of ceiling is about 3-3.7 meters and the height of the riding area is about 4.9-5.5 meters.
Minimize fire risk: No smoking in horse stables.
It is necessary to have an emergency fire prevention plan in advance, which can timely contain and extinguish fire, reduce loss as far as possible, and also reduce the corresponding insurance expense.
For example, the use of fireproof materials, fireproof paint in the construction of livestock stables.
Internal environment: Horse stable protects horses and maximizes the pressure from rain, snow, sunshine and wind.
In summer the wind is cool fast, but in winter the wind is sharp, blowing rain and snow flies into horse barn.
Paying attention to the prevailing wind direction at high altitude can help us to determine the orientation of the building as soon as possible.
Good ventilation: Poor humidity, temperature, and odor control are major problems in horse stables.
In cold weather, ventilation reduces the humidity in livestock barn and helps remove odors.
A large vent in a horse stable or riding area for cooling during hot weather.
Proper training ground: Stable fences and ranching require safe, durable, beautiful fences and strong railings.
Leave enough space on the pasture for horses.
Efficient transportation programs reduce labor needed to carry horses in and out of horse stable.
Consider keeping a loose horse under control because there are areas of the farm where you don't want horses walking around.
Water and feed, herbage: Stable and grazing land should be supplied with sufficient and high-quality drinking water all year round.
The material room must be in a corrosion resistant environment and out of the reach of horses.
A great deal of hay is best kept in separate places, and a little in horse stables, for a convenient forage supply for a few days.
Special features of horse shelter: Including horse brushing or washing area, carriage storage, breeding area, training area, office, lounge, accommodation area, these facilities can be arranged in one building or separately in other buildings.

Save labor: Three-fourths of stables are manual labor, so no matter what the size of horse farm, you want to save labor.
If horse stable scale is larger, labor force mechanization can be realized.
Good design allows horse stable staff to work efficiently in a bright and fresh air environment, making them feel comfortable.
Give priority to the more time-consuming tasks: feeding, drinking water, cleaning and laying stalls, nursing, training, leading horses in and out of stalls.
Next consider mane grooming, breeding, insect repellent, veterinary work, foot care, halter damage, etc.
Horse manure management: make a plan for storing and disposing a large amount of horse manure and barn waste in advance.
Prioritize routine work related to horse stables waste management to ensure that the stables do not cause environmental pollution (e.g. waste flows into nearby rivers) and that stables are not disturbed by odours and insects.
Drainage: The arrangement of the relevant facilities in an advantageous place for adequate drainage throughout the year.
Reasonable drainage takes into account surface flow and groundwater.
Poor drainage can cause serious problems and lead to inadequate use of well-designed facilities.
Stratified drainage and underground drainage can be used to solve other drainage problems.
Cost of construction and maintenance of horse stable: The materials and types of buildings chosen for horse stables should be durable and easy to maintain.
Think about the expenses that will be incurred, the value of future advertising, and similar intangible values that can make people feel proud and satisfied.
So in the long run, high quality building materials are cost-effective.
The main types of construction of horse facilities include beam and column structures and net span structures.
Each option has both advantages and disadvantages for horse stable.
For horse lovers, we consider horses as companions and family.
But when it comes to horse stables, they are treated like livestock in general.
Horses are big and strong animals, which means that when we design horse stables for sports horses, we should respect their nature and habits.
In order to provide a comfortable and safe living environment for horses, horse barn designers must give priority to the welfare of horses when considering architectural details, which are inseparable from the behavior of horses.
