For people who are looking for a safe refuge of their livestock, their feed, and farm machinery while also staying within a tight budget, erecting a Horse barn is an ideal option. Our metal Horse barns offer both affordability and functionality to farmers who are looking for the best protection for their animals and equipment.
Horse barns, also commonly referred to as Regular barns, are metal barns that come with horizontal alignment of the roof panels and rounded- edge roof line. The roof bows are bent in the curved shaped instead of being welded to the posts. These barns have a main central aisle and side Lean-to’s which make the barn spacious enough to comfortably accommodate horses and cattle, while also providing extra spaces for storage of feed or machinery. The absence of the side eave trims and the hat channels lowers the manufacturing cost of these metal barns thus, making them the cheapest metal barns we offer.
Raising a horse or any other livestock is, in itself, very tiring and wearisome without you having to worry about the of maintenance of their shelter. Horse barns provide great protection to your livestock and their feed from the adverse elements of nature, be it rain or sunshine. Being Regular style roof, Horse barns are better suited to places with mild climatic condition throughout the year which do not heavy rainfall, snowfall or strong winds.

Pros of Horse Barn
- Most economical option for providing a safe and comfortable shelter for your livestock.
- Durable and long-lasting that can withstand constant abuse from the animals.
- Customizable optional for sizes, colors and additional features of the barn to fit your needs.
Cons of Horse Barn
- Requires more regular cleaning and maintenance because of the horizontal placement of panels. Water, snow or other debris accumulate in the ridges of the panels which, if not cleaned regularly, can give way to early rusting of the panels.
- The roof style of the Horse barn does not easily fit in with the general architecture of a traditional house.
