How much does it cost to build a horse stable?

Having a secure stable block to house your horses is essential for any horse trainer or rider. Providing horses with a comfortable space to relax will not only prove worthwhile in the short term, but it will also pay off in the long run – a comfortable and secure space will result in horses that are not only healthier, but happier.

If you need to build a horse stable or horse stable block from scratch you may be wondering, how much will this cost? While the overall cost will vary depending on what you require, there are some basic features that you should include which will give you an idea of what you may end up spending.

Supporting RRT – how we're doing our part

Just like you, we were devastated to see the toll the recent Australian bushfires took on loved ones, communities, forests, and our wildlife. While we managed to stay away from the worst of the fires here in Young, New South Wales, it was heartbreaking to see the amount of damage caused from the fires across the country and to see many who lost their family homes and more.

Now with wild weather and floods ravaging some parts of Australia, it's even more important to keep supporting our firefighters, medical workers and other emergency services during times of crisis so they can keep up the amazing work they do, every single day. That’s why for every shed sold during the months of February and March, we will be donating $1,000 to our friends over at the Rapid Relief Team.

How to get finance for your farm shed

Any farmer with livestock knows the effort and cost involved in continuing to buy feed for their animals, especially during a time of drought, flooding or other challenging circumstances. Recent environmental challenges have highlighted the challenges farmers face in preparing and protecting their feed and pasture. Feed loss might come in the form of a devastated pasture with crops useless before they’re harvested or it may come in the form of harvested feed losing nutrients due to improper storage. And while you can’t stop every form of feed loss, you might be able to reduce that loss by taking additional steps to protect it.

Benefits of a commercial steel frame shed

If you’re planning on constructing a new commercial shed or building then you’ll want to make sure you’ve considered all of your options before you start building – one of the most important things to decide on is the type of material you use to construct your shed from.

Steel is becoming more and more of a popular material to use when constructing commercial sheds. Steel is already used widely in the construction industry for things like bridges and high rise buildings, it’s also a great option for commercial sheds due to its versatility and durability.

Horse Stables - Inspiration

So you’ve decided to invest in a horse stable – good choice! Horse stables or sheds are a great way to keep your horses safe when they need rest, and also offer complete shelter from the elements. As they say – a healthy horse is a happy horse!
