Run-ins allow your horse to spend more time where they belong…outside! Most horses are much happier out in a field rather than locked in a stall. However, horse owners often worry about rain, snow, wind, scorching heat, and frigid temperatures. Run-ins offer your horse protection from nasty weather.
Check out a few cool designs to get some inspiration. You might not even want a barn after seeing these!
This simple design has three sides and is constructed of steel and wood.
Check out this lovely example! It has a feed/tack room that is completely sealed off with a door.
Similar to the one above, this smaller run-in has a tiny area for storage. The four sides will offer even more protection against wind, rain, and snow.
Lastly, if you’re looking for something with good airflow, this might be your match.
Choosing a run-in can be tricky, especially with all of the different options. Take your time and examine what features will be most helpful for you and your horse.
