Barn Hacks & DIY Projects

Arena Jump Setup

Being an equestrian can be rather expensive, particularly when you try to purchase a simple item and it has been upcharged two or three times simply because it has a horse label attached to it. While we love our horses as part of the family and we want to purchase every little thing for them, do not forget that there are plenty of do-it-yourself (DIY) projects and barn hacks that you can do to save money and make more happen. An owner first needs to make sure that they budget reality and that the horse is always cared for alongside taking care to not put themselves in a situation where they are financially struggling. When you are free of financial stress, you can do way more for your horse in good spirits.

But all horse people are broke!

That is the common joke and stereotype of the horse world but it does not have to be true! First and foremost, make sure that you make a budget in which you spend less than you make per month. RPE endorses the Dave Ramsey Baby Steps in finding financial peace and stability through following his path to becoming debt-free and building wealth. Following his simple steps, you will write out a detailed budget for your expected income and designate all of your bills and expenses. Doing this will take away part of the stress and burden in knowing that you already have money set aside for important categories (such as gas and horse feed). Once all basic categories are covered (including your Debt Attack category), you may look at planning small sinking funds on the side in which you let money grow in an external account that is to be used for that sinking fund target. Sinking funds can be Christmas gifts, horse show expenses, vehicle maintenance, big future anticipated purchases, horse medical bills & supplements, and more. However, try to only create a sinking fund for what you actually need! Once you are out of debt (if you have any as many normal people do - don't try to be normal, it sucks!) and financially stable, you will be amazed at the lifestyle that you can build.

DIY projects not only help save money on plenty of services and products but also provide a certain level of self-satisfaction in solving a problem or creating a product yourself. There are many DIY barn projects and barn hacks that are available online through enough searching and enough creativity. This page is dedicated towards highlighting successful DIY projects and barn hacks that have been extremely useful and cost-effective for RPE.

Simple Barn Maintenance & Organization

There are plenty of barn maintenance and organization hacks to research and adopt that make life much easier and more professional. Organization and keeping the barn tidy is an important trait of RPE in order to make sure everything has a place and that the barn is open and inviting. Aside from consistently cleaning the water trough, raking the aisle, and sweeping the stairs and mats, RPE also makes sure that the stalls and cross-ties stay clean, tack is regularly checked for cleaning, and a binder of thorough information and a summarized check-list for feed shifts allow for all handlers to have clear understanding of RPE's expectations when caring for our horses.

LED White Christmas Lights - Beautiful Barn Lighting

Light in a barn is extremely helpful during operations, particularly during the long nights that fall during the end of the year. In my situation, I had lighting inside the barn and in front of the barn. However, I found myself struggling with the lack of lighting that was available on the side of the barn under the overhang. It made sense for when the barn was built, as we would groom and tack up inside the barn stalls at the time. However, I much prefer tacking up outside and on cross ties now as it's more open and it's easier to get around. Up until now, I've simply dealt with the dilemma but also haven't been riding as much in the dark season with the cold. Now that I'm looking at riding more after work with the arena lights set up, I wanted to make sure that I had enough adequate lighting for before and after. Not only were the lights easy to set up, but the LED bulbs also output a solid amount of light for one strand. In addition to now having extra lighting under my overhang, the project also just glows like the night sky and has an elegant and beautiful look to it. I only have one 60' strand up at the moment, but very well may add one more as they easily attach to each other.

Baling Twine - Ribbon Decoration

There are many uses of baling twice which have been implemented from decorating the barn with show ribbons to hanging up box fans during the summer season along with bungee cords. And if you find yourself in possession of too many ribbons that aren't doing anything, put them to work and allow them to decorate your barn. You'd be amazed at the difference colorful ribbons in a riding stable makes.

Vet Wrap - Protection & Stability

As for our wood railing that younger riders use for stability, everyday vet wrap has been used to prevent any wood splinters from occuring and also allow for more grip.

JeffersPet Portable Blanket Bar - Blanket Organization

Portable blanket bars from JeffersPet have been the most budget-friendly product that is a steal in its purchase price for blanket organization. Vet wrap can also be used on the blanket bars for a better grip as well so that the blankets do not slide right off.

Hay Chix Round Bale Net - Extend Hay Life

We also tried out the Hay Chix Round Bale Net with the largest holes available and Mocha gave me an unamused look at the time. If you want to extend the life of your round bale, these nets held up reliably and without tear while extending my round bales twice as long as normal. However, due to personal preferences, I did stop feeding the round bale in the net due to both laziness of putting it on as well as finding that the horses would still waste a good amount of hay towards the end when they simply stopped trying to eat any more. With those reasons, plus wanting my horses to get all the hay that they can, I am keeping my net in storage until further decisions have been made.

Open-Top Round Bale Feeder - Extend Hay Life

We just recently got the Tarter Equine Pro Feeder with Hay Saver (Horse Bale Feeder) from R&D Cross with the goal of extending the life of our round bales through less wasted hay. Especially with going into winter where there is less grass to consume, the horses usually consume a given round bale a day or more earlier with the change in their grazing routine. Having some protection for the round bale that at least ensures that they do not stomp all of the dropped hay into the ground (which Mocha loves to do as she now has a lovely bed of hay she likes to sleep on in that area) should help with this dilemma. However, this section will require updating after a bit of time in an official review. We also were only looking for open-top bale feeders so that no horse can get their head caught while eating if a more dominant horse comes by.

Grain Scale - Effective Equine Nutrition

Feeding based on weight and not by scoop measurements is a critical factor in horse care that is often overlooked due to a lack of effort. This is not any kind of an attack towards people who are feeding by scoop measurements (I used to do the same based on the grain amount recommendations for different horse types). Having switched to ADM Horse Grain and taking more care to measure out grain consumption by body weight, I have noticed a drastic improvement in the quality of my horses' energy and moods. And finding a scale is not at all difficult, as I purchased two relatively cheap food scales off of Amazon in which I keep one in the barn and one at home. The scales have been working perfectly without a battery replacement for over a year so far and allow for proper zeroing-out of the feed scoop so that I may accurately measure the weight of the actual grain amount. After doing multiple conversions to get from pounds to ounces, my feeding system has never been more consistent nor effective!

Metal Trash Cans - Grain Storage

While on the topic of grain, metal trash cans are my personal recommendation for grain storage. Not only do they stay nice and clean with every use, but they also provide a strong barrier that critters cannot get into. And when the occasional critter does come and manages to figure out how to pop off one of the lids, I either put a cinderblock on top or use a bungee cord to secure the lid to the side handles. As for distinguishing which can is which, I prefer the larger cans for my base grain and the smaller cans for my supplemental grain. On top of can size, I also use duck tape with sharpie to clearly identify to additional handlers which grain is which to prevent confusion and mixups.

Cheap Plastic Shed - Grain Delivery System

As for restocking grain, my local feed store delivers grain due to conflicting hours and unloads all contents into my pop-up, plastic shed that I purchased just for this reason. Instead of having the delivery people deal with bringing the grain to the barn and risk the horses getting out (the barn is in the pasture), this shed stands outside the gate and has been a fantastic investment that is simple, straight-forward, and protective of my delivery until I arrive and restock my feed cans.

Color-Coding Each Horse - Simple Use & Organization of Care & Equipment

Since the beginning of owning horses, my family got into the habit of color-coding our horses according to each horse owner's color preference. I have continued the habit of color-coding each horse's care and performance equipment since and it truly does make life easier, particularly when there are new handlers involved who are still learning where everything is. For our horses, In Your Dreams is associated with purple, Celtic Class is associated with blue, and Dark Delight is associated with red. These color associations help with their feed buckets, stall water buckets, blanket sizes, and more and are definitely a habit of recommendation!

LED Flood Lights - Bright & Far Arena Lighting

We installed two 100W LED Flood Lights for arena lighting after thorough research of product details and reviews. The pair that we have actually came as a deal for two which was also a plus and a family-friend electrician was able to install them for us! LED was definitely the way to go without doubt and the light reaches across the field in some areas that are not blocked by trees! Ideally, we would like to get more of them but that would require running new wires (the old light posts were already set up) and frankly it would be more of a luxury than anything at the moment. Plenty of light covers the riding area between the two as well as the lights that are already on the barn. Extremely happy with these lights!

24/7 Security Camera Surveillance - Protection & Peace of Mind

Another must-do for any barn is to do one's research and determine the best security camera surveillance system that is appropriate for you. Cameras offer multiple benefits that range from protection to solving the mystery of why your horse may come in lame on a random occasion (maybe they got kicked or slipped when playing during turnout, you'll never know unless you have proof!). If there is a proper WiFi setup, you can even set up your system to allow remote viewing from a mobile device so that you can check on your horses and facility whenever you feel like, or even keep an eye on when workers and riders are expected to be out to make sure that everyone is doing what they're supposed to be doing without problems. With plenty of storage, I can even go back and review a ride if one of my riders has questions about what they could've done better or what they could spend time working on when coming out to ride independently. There's simply too many benefits to installing a security camera surveillance system to not even consider doing so!

Geotextile Mud Solution

Many barns face flooding and mud problems both under shelters and out in the fields, particularly by gates and on inclines. Our issue was the former, where intense rainfall would lead to flooding around the outer perimeter of our barn. While our horses have full turnout and only come in for feed and medical concerns, any type of flooding was annoying enough to research potential solutions. Even outside the barn and under its overhang, the amount of rainfall got to the point where the covered area would stay muddy and refuse to dry out even in hot temperatures. It would get to the point where the horses would even prefer not to stand in the covered section due to the thickness of the mud.

With enough research into mud and erosion solutions, geotextile grids became a proven savior for RPE's mud control. The process was simple, requiring the area to be prepped, laying down the geotextile products, and filling it in with one's choice of material. For RPE's barn, prepping involved digging 6" deep to be below the stall doors and sloping downhill and away for drainage of heavy rainfall. After digging and checking measurements, it was time to lay down the geotextile fabric. Once the fabric was down, a geotextile grid of 6" height was spread out and anchored by simple tent spikes. Once the grid was secure, gravel was layed down across the grid so that all of the grid's lines were completely covered. Once the gravel was in the grid both by tractor and wheelbarrow, the gravel was compacted down by weight of a tractor and the weight of the horses over the next few days. As the gravel started getting packed down more, more gravel was added to once again cover the grid lines peeking out.

Another note for budgeted equestrians, this DIY barn project was done over several days and in two separate parts before the section was complete. The generic geotextile fabric and grids were purchased via Amazon at a much cheaper cost than any of the horse-labeled mud solution products were marketed for. I ordered 5 tons of Crush and Run gravel from Mulch and Stone (MD) for the first half and ordered 7 tons of gravel for the second half with the extra to be spread over the completed project. The solution has held up reliably well in heavy rainfall so far and even when wet, it has remained sturdy and comfortable enough for the horses.

Cost-Efficient, Customized Tack Trunks

The 37 in. Husky Utility Cart has been a barn favorite for tack and feed trunks that comes with two keys, wheels attached, and a grooming / tool caddy all included for the cost-effective price of $50 at Home Depot (actually bought my third one on sale for $40!). But if you would rather get your tack trunk sold with or without wheels for over twice that much, you do you. I also customized each tack trunk for each mare by using some simple paint tape to make a large letter stencil and spray painted each letter with multiple layers.

Moveable Jump Pole Storage Rack

For jump pole storage, RPE has made use of a west horizontal lumber storage rack that is placed on large, heavy-duty stem casters to be easily moved. The stems were slightly too large for the pre-drilled holes of the pole rack base so a drill bit was used to widen the holes. The pole rack now has a nice set of casters and moves around well on a hard, outdoor surface. NOTE to purchase large, heavy duty casters as the first set purchased were too small and the stems would lean off the one side when attempting to roll. The second set I purchased solved the problem. This is particularly stressed to moving the pole rack outdoors on rough ground. For a footing arena, you will probably need extremely large caster wheels to get through the soft ground.

Jump Poles

Arena jump poles are crazy expensive and are rather easy to make solo. While some jumps are preferred to be purchased (such as cross-country jumps), basic jump poles are much more cost effective as DIY. To make it simple with the least amount of effort, 8' landscape timbers serve as reliable and sturdy wooden poles that are already cut with round edges. And if you time your shopping wisely, many holidays bring half-price sales on landscape timbers at Home Depot which means you can buy twice as many poles for the same amount of money. To make them nicer, you can sand the wood, followed by caulking the poles and finishing with priming the poles. If your primer is white and you are satisfied, then you have white jump poles. If you want more color, add some color. Easy!

Jump Standards

Arena jump standards are crazy expensive and are rather easy to make solo. While some jumps are preferred to be purchased (such as cross-country jumps), basic jump standards are much more cost effective as DIY. To make it simple with the least amount of effort, an 8' pressure-treated 4"x4" wooden post serves as a reliable 4' jump standard when cut in half. Depending on your standard base preference (I prefer a 2"x10"x8' board cut into 1 ft bases for a pair of standards), purchase a board for the base to be cut into four equal parts. If you want to get extra, you can cut a downhill slope of the ends of the base boards for a more traditional look. Personally, I'm too lazy and I don't think not doing it ruins the look. Once all wood pieces are cut, sand the wood down for a finer finished look. When sanding is complete, assemble the base boards to the standard with screws (I prefer 3" screws for the bases with two into the post and two into the short end of the neighboring base board) and then caulk the bases. You may either drill jump cup holes before or after wood assembly depending on preference but make sure to test the holes with an actual jump cup to ensure that it is ready for use. Prime the standards once they are ready and if desired, spray paint the standards. Once satisfied, you have a pair of basic jump standards!

Jump Gates

Arena jump gates are crazy expensive and are rather easy to make solo. While some jumps are preferred to be purchased (such as cross-country jumps), basic jump gates are much more cost effective as DIY. To make it simple with the least amount of effort, understand what type of gate you want to build and what materials that you need. Sometimes you have enough scrap wood to start a project. Othertimes, there are really cheap wood options at Home Depot or your local store. This gate here was scrap wood cut leftover from plywood used for my hayloft door and measured to 7' in length. If it was 8' long, I would've simply added Jump Plank Ends (Dover Saddlery sells them for ~$20). Since the scrap wood was 7' in length, it required some support to make it 8' in length so that it would match my 8' landscape timber jump poles. The easiest way to do this was to buy some cheap, thin boards from Home Depot that were a couple dollars each and then measure everything out. To make it look nicer, I got a few additional slim boards to cut for framing, although note that a simple top addition would suffice for jumping. I also had some leftover spray paint that I used to paint the frame boards separately before assembling everything. When I get more inspiration in the future, I'll probably add some more decoration to the white panel but for now it will suffice.

Cross Country Jumps

Cross Country jumps are no exception to the crazy prices that anything with a horse label has attached to it. And while it is crucial to plan and construct cross country jumps well to keep everyone safe, DIY cross country jumps are a fun and far more cost-effective project than simply purchasing some of the most common, everday jumps. Having cross country jumps at home is also an excellent training benefit as the horses are already comfortable in their surroundings and they become far more desensitized to similar jumps that they encounter when riding in a new environment.

Small Bank

Jumping banks are a fantastic exercise for conditioning and training with the natural uphill and downhill design of the jump. Jumping banks uphill is far easier both on the horse and rider than jumping downhill with balance, which is why having a small one at home serves as an excellent starting point for any new horse or rider to learn with while being in a comfortable environment.

Arrowhead

An arrowhead jump has been on the list for a while and is relatively easy to make with a panel of wood that is cut to desired lengths and shapes. An arrowhead serves as a different and unique type of jump for a horse to to encounter, as arrowheads are usually skinny fences and the design is different compared to the usual plank or gate.

Next on the list and long overdue! Will be making a small one and a large one >;)

Finding Free Wins

Never underestimate free wins if you do your research! Craigslist and networking are amazing tools that can result in barn hack wins.

Wood Pallents

Never purchase a wooden pallet! There are countless wooden pallets that are advertised for free on Craigslist for pickup. If you don't see one right away, either expand your geographical search or simply be patient, as they will be up soon. Plenty of posts offer free wooden pallets and scrap wood that can be used for jump building.

55 Gallon Plastic Barrels

On one of my free win trips, I went to pick up free wood pallets and noticed a bunch of 55 gallon plastic barrels seeming to not be used. I went back to the company representative who had posted the pallets to ask if they were also free to go and seeing that I wasn't using them for food or water storage, they told me they were mine. It took me an additional trip back to the site but I made it out with a bunch of free barrels that can now be used as jumps, jump standards, desensitizing, barrel racing, trail obstacles, and gymkhana games. Just for reference, those barrels are going for at least $15 per barrel.

Tires

Also depending on how much you're paying attention and where you usually drive, there seem to be abandoned tires everywhere. And if you are vocal about your network bringing their replaced tires to you instead of paying a disposal fee when getting new tires, you will never have to pay for tires to use as jumps and more! Driving down the road, I scored big by passing 4' tires that are the largest that I've ever had the opportunity to grab and even made a second trip to grab more tires.

Mirrors

Casually keeping an eye on what's offered for free in the area on Craigslist, I came across several large mirrors from an old barber shop that had closed. Managing to fit three of the 4'x4' mirrors in my commuter car on my way home from work, I invested a small amount of money in purchasing a pack of 15 steel mirror wall clips and measured everything out so as to mount two of my three mirrors on the side of the barn alongside our riding area. Having mirrors where you ride is a fantastic training aid for riders in that they can see their position in the saddle as you try to explain new concepts to them, plus the fact that it is really nice to occassionally check your equitation and position while you're mounted. The horses also seemed to like who they saw in the mirror, as it's been a while since all of them had been around a mirror and definitely never around one that large, clear, and close before.

Fencing

Traditional fencing invovles wooden posts with three wooden boards to contain horses and is still plenty reliable. The majority of our pasture is fenced with normal wooden posts but instead of boards we have the flexible rail horse fence (also referred to as Flex Fence) that holds up really well. While that is the primary fencing of the pasture, there is a section of woods in the back that has an older wooden fence line along with natural barriers. In addition to the barriers already back in the wooded section, RPE added an additional fence line that is cost effective for horses who are not actively trying to mess with fence lines. Easy to install solo and budget-friendly, this fence line involves 4' (or higher) welded wire rolls held by galvanized T-Post fence clips to 5' (or higher) metal T-Posts that are positioned in the ground with the help of a post driver.

For personally installing 400 feet of fenceline, the total cost was approximately $400 compared to contract estimates of $1,000 and more. Do note that when installing this fenceline, only set up a couple T-Posts at a time as with adding additional 100 ft sections, some of the wire fence was overlapped to keep a strong barrier. And if a horse does decide to test the fence's stability, you may always add a strand or two of barb wire along the fence to dissuade a troublemaker.

Cost-Efficient Winter Blankets

Winter horse blanket prices seemed to have sky-rocketed over time when looking back and this trend can tend to intimidate owners into purchasing the more expensive option. First and foremost for the owner who is considering blanketing their horse, do your research. Understand the weather conditions that are common to your geographical area. Understand the needs of your horse or horses in whether or not the cold weather will stress them out without a blanket. Consider the everyday lifestyle of your horse regarding turnout, shelter, and stalling. Also consider the training and exercise regime expected of the horse throughout the colder season and if this impacts your horse's winter fur coat (such as if they are clipped for competition).

It is important to remember that undomesticated horses do just fine through the winter seasons without blanketing. Their winter coats come in thick and if the season is colder than expected, the body adjusts to grow a thicker winter coat the following year. As owners, we have become wimps in our own discomfort in the cold (not an attack, I'm a complete wimp in the cold!) and now it seems that almost every domesticated horse found in cold terrain is blanketed for the season. But as long as you understand that this is a human-sponsored luxury and is not a life-depending need of the horse, you are in good standings.

Understanding all the considerations above, there are both benefits and hazards to blanketing your horse with the coming cold winter. Benefits include helping to maintain weight on a hard-keeper who loses weight with any form of stress, including cold weather, as well as blanketing helps protect them from the elements while you have a sense of peace with your horse living a more natural life with full turnout. Some hazards to caution on blanketing is to make sure that a horse is not blanketed early before the real cold sets in or else they will not have a chance to grow their winter coat at all, to not have a heavy blanket on a horse when it is above freezing or else risk them over-heating and colicking, and to understand that blanketing in general gradually kills the winter coat over time so that it will not grow in thick each winter.

All that being said, it is acceptable to be a complete wimp in over-caring for your horses as RPE has become, so long as you have that understanding and open mind when other horses are being cared for differently and are perfectly healthy.

Recommended Heavy Blanket with Wraps ~ $90 - $115

Absolutely and without a doubt, RPE's award for the most cost-efficient and amazing-quality winter blanket goes to the HILASON 1200 Denier Waterproof Winter Horse Blankets (400g)! This blanket is an absolute must for any horse owner and the price is as though it's on a 50% sale year-round. All RPE horses have this blanket as their heavy winter blanket without question. Available on Amazon, the HILASON winter horse blankets come in a variety of colors and all come with a belly wrap included for approximately $90. To purchase the full set with the neck wrap included, the final price comes to approximately $115. This blanket has met all RPE needs including color choice (for horse color-coding), protection, durability (Dark Delight is a reigning blanket-destroyer), and secure fit (meaning it does not move nor rub the fur). Again, absolutely recommend this blanket if an owner is going to get any blanket (start with this one!). The only part that I've had to replace is the front clip on Dark Delight's (which you can purchase in bulk relatively cheap). Zero regrets and still in love! All three pictures below are HILASON heavy blankets (with Chloe having her light-fill sheet layer underneath for a Polar Vortex and it's crazy, negative degree weather).

Recommended Medium Blanket ~ $75

Turning into a wimp, RPE has gotten various layers for our horses. As for a cost-efficient medium-layer blanket, RPE highly recommends the Tough-1 600 Denier Turnout Blanket (250g). Also available in various colors helpful in color-coding, this blanket serves as a perfect choice when the temperature wants to balance around the freezing temperature line throughout the daytime. This blanket allows RPE horses to not be as tucked in for the questionable temperature to prevent overheating and also serves as a good transition to the heavy blanket so that when the real cold comes, a thicker layer can be put on and make a difference. The Tough-1 Medium Blanket was purchased through Amazon for approximately $75.

Recommended Light-Fill Sheet ~ $70

On the topic of being a wimp, RPE's various layers also recommend the Tough-1 420 Denier Turnout Sheet (150g). Its use depending on weather conditions and dropping temperatures, this light-fill turnout sheet helps provide a peace of mind as an owner with questionable weather (particularly with caring for a hard keeper). The only inconvenience with this brand is that for attempting to color-code RPE mares, there seemed to be no such red-colored 78" option available anywhere for Dark Delight. To accomodate for this annoyance, RPE uses a light blanket liner (recommended below) for Dark Delight underneath her no-fill sheet. The Tough-1 Light-Fill Turnout Sheet was purchased through Amazon for approximately $70.

Recommended Blanket Liner ~ $70

Simply discovered due to a dilemma in finding an exact product with a red Light-Fill Sheet for Dark Delight, RPE highly recommends the Horseware Blanket Liner (100g). Specifically purchased to create a fill-sheet, RPE finds the 100g a perfect weight. However, Horseware does also sell heavier blanket liners for anyone interested. Not only are they simple to put on, but they also do a fine job of staying in place. The Tough-1 blankets and sheets do not have inside hooks for blanket liners but RPE has not found the missing hooks to be an issue in the use of the product (it has a velcro front strap and two clips by the hind legs that RPE uses just fine). Purchased on Amazon, the Horseware Blanket Liner sells for approximately $70.

Recommended No-Fill Sheet ~ $60

Continuing to be an extreme wimp (particularly for my hard-keeper and also having all mares have the same opportunity), RPE recommends two different types of no-fill horse sheets. RPE mainly uses no-fill sheets in late-fall/winter inclimate weather while temperatures are still above freezing (such as keeping the horses protected in rain and high winds). Through many shopping comparisons, RPE recommends the Tough-1 420 Denier Turnout Sheet with no fill to serve these needs. Tough-1 has done a remarkable job at holding up with RPE horses and comes in a variety of colors available. The other sheet RPE uses is a generic one with no-known brand name but is a 600 Denier Turnout Sheet with no fill that RPE prefers for the thicker quality compared to Tough-1's thin sheets. However, the generic sheet only came in Navy colors compared to the Tough-1 options. The generic one was found with enough web-surfing and purchased for approximately $70. The Tough-1 No-Fill Sheets were purchased through Amazon for around $60.
