There are many options for you to comfortably make a home for your horse or horses, whether you need a small barn for one horse or a large horse barn for commercial use. Keep reading to learn more about the reasons why a pole barn might be right for your equestrian center. 

1. Pole Barns Give Your Horses Their Space

As you well know, horses are no small creatures. Many people struggle to find a living space for their horses that allows enough space for them. Though there are larger and smaller horses, all of them need enough space to be comfortable. With a pole barn, you can start with a smaller enclosure, then scale up depending on the amount and size of your horses. Just as no two horses are the same, pole barns can and need to look different to suit your horses' individual needs. 

2. There are Options Aplenty for Your Horses’ Pole Barn

Just as your home suits your personal needs, style, and aesthetics, your pole barn can reflect the needs of your horses. There are many options when designing your pole barn to fulfill your needs for your horses' home. Do you need one larger door or several medium doors? How about additional human-size doors? How many windows would you like and where? Also, don't forget to add tack rooms, cleaning stalls, and other special rooms.

3. Don’t Forget Your Horses’ Comfort in Their Pole Barn Home

Horses are sturdy creatures. They can better weather the seasons than most people. However, they are still living beings and still feel the effects of intense cold, extreme heat, or uncirculated air. With the right planning, you can keep your pole barn at the right temperature and well-ventilated so all your horses stay comfortable. Different locations will have different needs, so make sure to work with your contractor to get exactly what you need.

4. Horse Pole Barns are Cost-Effective

Horses are not cheap! Owning a horse on your own or running an equestrian center can get pricey quickly. That being said, their accommodations don’t have to be expensive. With the structure, size, options, and easy-to-build format, pole barns are a great way to house horses effectively and inexpensively. Working with an experienced contractor will ensure that your pole barn has everything you need for a successful horse home. Our manufacturing and outreach team can connect you with professional contractors in your area.

The Mansea Metal Difference

We Are The Manufacturer

Most of the companies who advertise metal roofing and siding or post-frame buildings are simply reselling products produced by someone else. We produce our own products from rolled steel and have large indoor yards that keep our lumber protected. That way, we control the quality and time of delivery to you. And that creates jobs right here in your home town.

Higher Quality Steel with Superior Finishes

The truth is not all steel is alike, especially when it comes to finishes. That’s why we use Sherwin-Williams WeatherXL™ Coil Coatings. Created to withstand most anything that comes its way, designed to maintain extreme resistance to abrasion, chipping and marring with tremendous color and gloss retention. And you get to select your favorites from more than 22 striking color options

You Won’t Be Shorted On Lumber

When we price a building package, we give you everything you need to ensure structural integrity. Like longer gable posts that extend to the top of the truss, not just tying in at the bottom. And long-lasting pressure-treated wood measuring .60 CCA. You won’t get this quality at a ‘big box’ store. Plus, we use true 6x6’s along with 2x10’s and 2x12’s that are #1 grade.
