Horse owners and ranchers understand better than anyone the value of having a quality, well-designed barn to house your animals. A good barn will not only provide shelter for livestock, but also improve the look and increase the value of your property.
When choosing a structure, it’s important to select one that meets these standards, as well as your individual needs. You will have multiple types of barns to consider to fulfill this role, all with their own advantages and limitations. An aisle barn is one of the most advantageous barn models you can invest in. Check out a few of the benefits this structure has to offer!
Proper airflow is one of the most important qualities of a healthy horse barn. Without adequate ventilation, dust, allergens, odor, and moisture will build up and the temperature will rise in your barn and make it an unhealthy environment for your animals. The open center of an aisle barn promotes plenty of airflow and allows you to quickly get a breeze going by opening both ends.
If you’re looking for a barn with plenty of space to house animals, work, or store supplies, the expansive design of an aisle barn is sure to meet your needs. With multiple stalls, you’ll be able to shelter all or most of your animals in one place for easy care and monitoring. The spacious center aisle makes it easy to work with your horses inside the barn for grooming or putting on tack. A supply or tack room would also be an easy addition to an aisle barn if you want even more space, organization, and efficiency for day-to-day operations.
With just the standard aisle barn design, it is easy to access all of your animals from the center aisle. But what’s even more convenient is that you can have Dutch doors installed in the back of each stall. This feature will make it easy for your horses to come and go through either side of the stall. If you set up an adjacent fenced area, they can even safely turn out for fresh air, sunshine, and exercise whenever they please.
