If mares and colts live in stables, you can remove  wall or block between the adjacent horse stables.

The standard height of the walls or stalls in the middle of horse stables should be about 2.4 metres and at least 2.2 metres, to prevent horses from kicking their legs over the wall. Many horses can kick up to 2.1 metres.

Door of horse stable is about 1.2 meters wide, which ensures safe passage for horses.


If there is a top in horse stable, the height should be about 3 meters to 3.6 meters. The lower top will not only affect the ventilation, but also easily make horse's head hit the top.

But many of horse stables on the livestock farms are open-plan, with no roof, in which case you just have to be careful not to bump horse's head against the lights or scaffolding.
