FAQs About Equestrian Pole Barns from Nelson’s Metals in Florida

An equestrian pole barn represents an investment, and you will want to know that it is the best choice for both you and your horses. Some of the types of questions Nelson’s Metals receives about equestrian pole barns are answered below.
Your equestrian pole barn's pricing will vary based on its size and the options you choose. For example, an equestrian pole barn that includes an indoor riding area, horse stalls, and a completed interior will be more expensive than an empty structure. However, you can expect to pay less than you would for an equestrian building using other construction methods in your costs per square foot. Call us today for a free quote.
Strong winds and heavy rain are common concerns of many people in Florida who own horses. You will want to make sure that your horse barn will protect your horses and equipment from the elements. Fortunately, our equestrian pole barns offer great protection for your horses and are very sturdy and durable. We build our equestrian pole barns to withstand the Florida elements. Your horses will also enjoy ideal living conditions with our professionally constructed horse stalls. You can also have your building insulated so that your horses can comfortably remain in a comfortable climate year-round.
How large your equestrian pole barn you might need will depend on how many horses it will house, the size of your horse stalls, and your storage space needs. Horse stalls come in a minimum size of 12' x 12'. If you have two horses, the minimum size you would need without any storage would be 12' x 24'. However, this would not be very comfortable for you or your horses, so we recommend that you consider a larger equestrian pole barn to accommodate your needs.
Nelson’s Metals offers a large variety of different customizations. When we help you design your equestrian pole barn, you should consider the following types of needs:  
  • Water drainage from stalls after cleaning them out
  • Feed and tack storage
  • The number of horse stalls you will need
  • Lighting and windows
  • Insulation
  • Access to an outdoor riding area for your horses
  • Expandability if you need to add more stables
We will work closely with you to ensure your completed building accommodates all your requested needs.
Equestrian pole barns differ from regular pole barns by including different types of interior features, including horse stalls, birthing stalls, and others.
