How to Help Your Horse Get Acclimated to a Barn

Horse Barn MAIf you are getting a horse barn in MA for the first time, then your horses might be a little hesitant to use it. At Chapin Sheds, we can build a horse barn to your exact specifications, whether you need a run-in barn or lean-to shed. Our team can even add a tack and storage room for all of your riding equipment and feed. Check out a couple of ways you can help your horse get acclimated to the new barn below.


Feeding your horses in the new barn will help them feel more comfortable about being in an enclosure. Some horses take to entering the barn easier than others. If one of your horses has difficulty being loaded into your trailer, then you might have to work with this horse to get them comfortable with entering the building.


You should not rush your horses into the new horse barn before they are ready because you or your horses could be injured in the process. When the time comes, your horses will be comfortable going in and out on their own, especially when they need to get out of the rain or heat this summer.

Lean-to VS. Run-in Horse Barns

Horse Barn MAHorse barns are an excellent choice for livestock owners because these buildings can protect your animals from the weather including the heat in the summer and severe storms.  Here at Chapin Sheds, we build custom horse barns for our clients in Massachusetts. Determine whether you want a lean-to or run-in shed for your horses below.

Lean-to Horse Barn- This type of horse barn in MA is handy because it can protect your animals from the heat during the summer by providing shade in an open pasture.  A lean-to structure can also shelter your horse when it starts to rain. Many horse owners choose this type of accommodation to be placed in pastures.

Run-in Horse Barn- If you are looking for a horse barn in MA that you can have individual stalls built in, you should consider a run-in horse barn. We can customize it to be a large building where multiple horses can run in when seeking shelter or horses can have individual stalls.

The team at Chapin Sheds will discuss the design options and our ability to customize each building to your exact needs. For additional information about these two types of horse barns, you can give us a call at (781) 447-4700 right now.

3 Benefits of a Horse Barn in MA

Horse Barn MAWhether you own one horse or multiple horses, you are probably considering some type of horse barn for your property. Here at Chapin Sheds, we can build custom lean-to horse barns and run-in sheds for your animals. Listed below are just a couple of advantages to having a horse barn in MA.

Protection from the Elements- In Massachusetts, the weather can be a little unpredictable with snow and rain. Keep your horses and other animals protected from the elements with a horse barn. With individual stalls, each horse can comfortably spend the cold nights or rainy days inside. Also, during the summer, this will give your horses a chance to cool off in the shade.

Customizable- You can choose the colors, trim, and whether or not you want a partial enclosure. Our team will work with you to ensure we build a horse barn that matches all of your needs.

Storage Room- You can also store tack and other essentials like brushes and feed inside the horse barn. By having the additional storage space, feeding and grooming will be more convenient for you.
