Bigger isn’t always better! Sometimes, a small horse barn is all your farm needs. Not only will it be more affordable to build, but it’ll be easier to maintain. You can focus on the necessities like hay storage, a stall or two for injuries or bad weather, and a tack/feed room. This barn is both practical and charming!

This barn is constructed of wood board and batten sides with a steel roof.

The overhang is perfect for letting their horses escape the rain or blazing sun. They also installed some feeders to keep the hay dry.

Their smaller corral leads out to a larger field for grazing. That’s a great setup!

The inside of their small barn is spacious! They can store hay, tack, and other farm necessities. It’s functional and simple.

Sometimes, it isn’t necessary to have a large 6+ stall barn. You may not even need stalls, depending on if your horses live out 24/7. A small space to store a few things is perfect for most hobby farmers.
