Year-round protection from the elements,
from an American barn

American barns give you scope for several stables and ancillary buildings, all under one roof. They are perfect for professional, busy horse owners who are looking for convenience in their horse care, helping to give ultimate peace of mind that horses are housed in the best possible conditions. Horses are all together, making it a very sociable arrangement, and everything is completely under cover, meaning you stay dry and cosy whilst going about your daily routine. With the option of wash-down bays, tack rooms, drying kits and more, there’s everything you need to make horse care a genuine pleasure – and there’s even room for a kettle in there, too.
