Learn how to keep your horse stable clean with tips from Blain’s Farm & Fleet.
You work hard to keep your horses clean and healthy, and that includes keeping their stable and stall clean, too. Not only does a clean stable look and smell better, it also helps keep your horse healthy. With the help of Blain’s Farm & Fleet, you can learn all about keeping your horse stable clean.
How to Clean a Horse Stall:
1. Move any clean, unsoiled bedding or hay into the back corners or against the walls. If you have bedding in the horse stall, use a bedding fork. If you have hay or straw, a pitchfork will do the job.
3. Use a shovel to pick up any dirt and debris that fell through the fork and sweep clean the center of the stall. Whether the floor is concrete or a rubber mat, use an absorbent deodorizer to treat any damp spots on the stall floor.
4. Let the cleaned stall air dry for as long as possible. This is a good time to let your horse enjoy time outside of the stall, as it only takes about 10 minutes for the actual cleaning process.
5. Once the stall is dry, pull back any clean bedding into the center of the stall. If needed, add new bedding to the stall and distribute and fluff it with a fork. You can then bring your horse back inside. Repeat these steps for all the stalls in your horse stable.
