Popular Horse Stables Terms

Countless ranches and equestrian homes have barns and stables to house various breeds of horses. Regardless of whether you own a small pony or several large horses, it is essential to have a proper place to board them at night or when you are not riding. Professional breeders that handle pony and horse sales also have sufficient barns and stables. Horse trailers are also often required for transporting these animals. Here you will find some popular terms and definitions that might improve your understanding of equine stables.

  • Equestrian – Of or related to horse riding. There are equestrians, who are individuals who ride horses, and then there are equestrian properties, which are those conducive with riding and housing ponies in barns or stables. These properties may be ranches or farms as well.

    Equestrian farms provide stables for horses. Stables, which are stalls for horses, provide a home for these animals, where they are fed, groomed, and otherwise taken care of. Stables usually are located within a farm, ranch, or barn, with plenty of outdoor areas for riding and exercise, as well as indoor boarding areas. Whereas horses used to provide farming assistance, pulling plows and the like, they are now primarily used for companionship and competition. Equestrian enthusiasts may rent out horse stables for their animal, visiting each day to ride their horse. Others own their own horse stable, while still others take weekly lessons at an equestrian farm. Horse stables also house equipment and supplies, such as tack, straw, saddles, hay, and feed. Stable workers on the farm need the proper supplies to care for the horses, including brushes, medical care items, feed bags, and horseshoes. When taking lessons at a stable, riders can learn lots of things in addition to how to ride a horse, such as hitching and breaking a horse, breeding, putting on bridles and shoes, and providing upkeep of a stall. People can rent a stable from management, or buy one outright if on sale. Trainers are the skilled professionals who know how to handle these equines, and provide many tips regarding training, boarding, and riding through club lessons. English and Western horse stables are also for storage of anything from farming equipment to hay. Some stables are small with just a couple of stalls, while others are quite large and can house many animals. Some are located within animal shelters, with on-site veterinary care. Others have large arenas attached to the ranch property, for hosting club competitions and shows. In addition to stables, people can rent trailers for transporting their equines.
