Stable Supplies That Will Provide Your Horses With Healthy Living Conditions

Recreation & Sports Blog

Successful stable ownership involves providing your horses with clean quarters, access to food and water, and opportunities to exercise when they are confined to staying indoors. The following horse stable supplies can make your life easier, plus may double as support aids when you and your horse will be actively involved in an activity away from home.

A Stable Cart

Manure that accumulates within your horse's stalls can breed germs that are harmful to your equines. Manure buildup can also contribute to needing to bathe your horses more frequently than you originally planned. A cart that is designed for stable usage may be constructed of plastic or metal. A stable cart is typically designed to be easier to operate than a wheelbarrow or a wagon.

This type of cart may contain a swivel handle, which will be suited for turning the cart around in close quarters. A shovel can be used to quickly scoop manure up and deposit it into your stable cart. Afterward, you can transport the manure to a location outdoors that your horses won't have access to. 

Slow-Release Feeders And Waterers

Food spillage and water spillage can make a stable unsanitary. The use of standard feeders and waterers could also result in your equines running out of food and water when you are not at home. Slow-release equipment may contain an overhead hanging device that can be secured to a stable door.

A slow-release product is designed to hold a large quantity of food or water, but slowly release the food or water as it is needed. Some products are designed to be set up on the floor. A hay feeder that is designed for floor usage, for instance, may contain a cage-like outer cover. Hay can be added to the cage and a horse will be able to access small bits of it at a time. 

Exercise Equipment

There will likely be many days when the weather won't support exercising or training your horses outdoors. A fully functional stable should be equipped with indoor gear that your horses can use. Hurdles, cones, horse leads, and horse chains are some products that you can use when walking your horses throughout the stable. These products can also be used when you are going to be actively riding a horse or teaching a horse some new commands. These tools will aid with keeping your horses active and preparing them for competitions.
