When following these horse run in shed plans, you should have all fastening hardware and metal roofing ready. The interior rear wall height is over six feet tall, the front opening head clearance height is over seven feet. All of these horse run in shed designs are not meant to be moved.
Follow the build-your-own horse shelter plans on a site with good drainage so the horses do not stand in muck and dirty water. Avoid placing the horse run in shelter shed in a low spot or at the bottom of a hill where water can accumulate. Place the shed so the open side is opposite the direction from prevailing winds, to provide shelter against cold arctic winds. Situate the shed out in the open, not under large trees that could be toppled by winds or ice.
Consider approaching the shed with a vehicle; place it in an easy and convenient location so feed, a farrier or a veterinarian may access the site. Footing inside the shed should be dry and cleanable. We recommend the horse sheds for sale sit on a level compacted crushed stone base 3 – 4 inches deep. Once the building is in place, lay rubber matting on top of the stone and add a bed of wood shavings, straw, or saw dust.
