Why Choose a Metal Horse Barn?

American-made, I-Beam steel framing, custom-engineered in factories across North America.

Metal horse barns are incredibly strong and are engineered to specifically meet your local codes for wind, snow, and seismic loads. Metal structures aren’t susceptible to pests or rot or the warping that can happen with traditional timber framed structures.

The structure is truly a bolt-together kit. Precision engineering ensures your barn will fit together precisely the first time and provide a weatherproof structure.

You have an enormous degree of design flexibility. Choose the roof style that fits with your property, available styles include gable, monitor, and gambrel. Doors, windows, and skylights can be placed where you need them. The strength of steel means no interior columns, and you can arrange stalls and storage areas to suit your setup.

Unlike pole barns, metal barns do not have roof trusses allowing you maximum internal height clearances and give you the ability to add a loft level without going up in height.

Steel-frame stables are a great upgrade that adds value to your property.

Popular Sizes & Layouts

30x40 Horse Barn (2 stall)

A 30x40 two-stall horse barn is a great alternative to the traditional wooden pole barn. The 1,200 square feet of column-free floor space provides enough room for two large 14x14 horse stalls and a 12x14 tack & feed storage room. Consider adding a lean to on the stable side of the building for a run-in shed.
