At one time, nearly all agricultural buildings were made out of wood. But that time has come and gone. Thanks to concerns over deforestation, rising lumber costs, and other factors, more and more farms and ranches are making the switch to steel-building construction. Not only are metal barns less expensive, but they last longer with fewer maintenance needs. Steel structures are also naturally incombustible, impervious to termites and pests, and generally cheaper to insure. And another thing property owners appreciate about going with a metal building is that it goes up much faster than a comparable pole barn or stick build, with a significantly shorter lead time for construction.
Horses are more than just mere brute animals. In fact, humans and horses have maintained a close relationship for many thousands of years. Horses are built to survive in the wild, but they can also thrive equally well under human ownership. That is if you take the necessary steps to provide reliable shelter and other necessities for your horses.
One essential consideration is to make sure you choose the right type of horse barn to shelter your four-hoofed companions. Traditional wooden horse barns can be expensive, and aren’t particularly easy to maintain. Metal horse barns from Carport Central are more reliable, and they’re a more cost-effective solution, too.
Many assume that a horse barn must necessarily be framed with wood, but that simply isn’t the case anymore. A steel horse barn has many advantages over a stick build, including the following:
Carport Central doesn’t just deliver and install metal horse barns. We also provide full-sized riding arenas that are perfect for training and showing horses. Here are two popular options we offer:
A covered riding arena is perfect if all you need is roof-only protection for your horse riding area. Just note that a roof-only shelter can still get pretty warm on a hot summer day, and can also get pretty chilly in the winter. Your horses won’t mind, but it’s something to consider for human participants. Even so, covered riding arenas do provide a distinct financial advantage: an open-air covered arena is usually a good bit cheaper to construct than a fully-enclosed facility.
If what you really need is a fully-enclosed facility for hosting your horses, riders, and spectators, we’ve got you covered there too. Since an indoor riding arena is fully enclosed, it can be fully insulated, finished, and climate controlled for optimal comfort, as well. And by choosing a steel tube-framed structure, your indoor riding arena can be designed to meet whatever building dimensions you may have in mind.
