I can see it in my mind’s eye – a cozy four-stall barn bordered by white post-and-rail fences and fronted by lush, green pasture with (best of all) my mare happily grazing...all just outside my back door. And I bet I’m not alone. How many horse owners don’t dream about having their own property?

Greening the Barn

By Margaret Evans - Everyone everywhere is finding ways to go green and for horse owners that includes the barn. After all, going green should mean going lean on the pocketbook no matter whether it’s an eco-home or a hayshed. Trendy or basic, the goal is the same: lower greenhouse gas emissions and benefit from cost savings.

Reduce Your Ecological Hoofprint

By Stephanie Captein - When asked about their ideal horse property, whether for ownership or boarding, many horse owners will list things such as expansive green pastures, clean stables, dry turnout areas, a managed manure compost system, proximity to equestrian amenities such as trails, and nice views of streams and forested areas. The resulting image is a picturesque vista of horses dotting the landscape and living in harmony with nature.

To our horses, and to many horse people as well, the barn is home. This often simple building is a place of rest, relaxation, and recuperation, of learning and training, of health and security, and of friendship and bonding. But if not built or managed properly, the barn can also become a danger; and even if we try our hardest to be vigilant, accidents and emergencies can and do happen.

Committed to Community

By Jess Hallas-Kilcoyne - When one thinks of dream barns, a therapeutic riding centre is typically not the first thing to come to mind. But Paralympian rider Alexander (Sandy) J. Mitchell (who will be competing in his fourth Paralympic competition in London in 2012) had a vision of a world class facility that catered to the elite equestrian and special needs rider alike. WindReach Farm was the result.
