How high should stable doors be?
Thereof, what size should a stable door be?
The complete door should have a height of 1.5 times the height of the horse to its withers, on average 2500mm.
how big should a stable be for a 16hh horse? If your horse is out most of the day and is a typical 16hh TB with a light build, he should be ok in a 3m x 3m stable with good ventilation and lots to see, however a 3.5m x 3.5m stable will probably be more to his liking. If he can comfortably lie down and get up that will be ok.
Also question is, what height should a stable be?
The recommendation is that the stable height should be between 9 feet and 11 feet with a minimum roof clearance of 3 feet.
What do you need in a horse stable?
To make sure your horse's stable is always properly kitted out, you'll need the following things:
- Water buckets for your horse to drink from.
- Feed buckets.
- Hay nets.
- Rubber mats for your stable floor (which are optional, but save time and mean you use less shavings or straw)
- Manure fork for mucking and skipping out.
