When it comes to building options in the equestrian sector opinions tend to vary. There are a lot of factors that go into the process of creating the prefect space and layout for not only your workers and riders but the horses as well. “Typical Pole barns begin to sink into the ground… and become quaint and rickety.” This is a quote from Cindy Hale on a HorseChannel.com article about choosing a steel barn over the typical pole barns. The most popular opinion is that prefabricated steel equestrian buildings are the best option for several reasons.
Reliable and Affordable Prefab Equestrian Buildings
Wood structures may seem to be the easier choice when deciding what type of structure to put up for your horses, but let’s look back on the story of the three little pigs. Wood structures were blown away with ease. When designing steel riding arenas , Coastal Steel reviews all of the weather conditions in your area using the International Builders Guide and takes these conditions into account when designing your equestrian buildings. This ensures that your barn will be able to withstand the test of time and all of the weather conditions in your area.
Coastal Steel Structures works closely with their customers not only to understand the weather conditions of the area but also to help provide a building that fits all of their customers needs. This is important for functionality purposes of the rider and horse.
A few questions to ask yourself:
- Is the structure close to a street so that a trailer can pull up for loading and unloading of equipment and horses?
- Does it have easy access to the arena if it is on the property as well?
- Can emergency services for both humans and horses access the facility with ease?
- How will the inside layout of the structure be designed?
It doesn’t matter what your metal building needs are. Coastal Steel has you covered. If you’re looking for a barn, hay shed, riding arena, stables, dairy barns or a livestock building, we’ve done it all and we provide the best materials. We can do machine shops, hangars for crop dusting planes and helicopters. Whatever your needs may be, you should give us a call today.
The Safety of a Steel Equestrian Building
Whether you are designing a riding arena or a barn, steel equestrian buildings offer wide-open spaces without any obstructions. Safety comes first when building a place to house your horses, steel allows for some resistance when pushed against, or in this case kicked. Another key factor to look at when deciding to build your equestrian structure from wood or steel is cribbing. Cribbing is when horses chew on the wooden structure that they are housed in. This could not only cause harm to the horse but also to the soundness of the structure.
Coastal Steel Structures understand that the equestrian lifestyle is both for revenue and pleasure. Therefore, having confidence in the structure that provides shelter to your horses is of the utmost importance. It is not just about trotting along and signing your song (Although it can be at times). Let Coastal Steel Structures take the reins on getting you the steel structure of your dreams!

Gutters and Downspouts for Metal Buildings
When it comes to metal buildings, it’s the little features you want to pay attention to. Gutters and downspouts are the first place you should start on your steel building. Gutters are essential to those that want to keep the weather out and protect their investment. Gutters and downspouts protect from water damage by diverting rainwater, melting snow and heavy condensation from the roof by diverting it elsewhere.
Walking through runoff rain and water while entering your building is not the most tolerable way to enter you newly built prefabricated steel building. Failure to get gutters and downspouts can affect the quality and durability of your prefab building.

Lean-to Metal Building Roof Additions
A lean-to building addition is very popular for many different reasons. Typically, a lean-to is an open roof cover that is attached to the main structure. Lean-to roof additions are typically between 8’ feet and 16’ feet wide. The lean-to is often the most popular option for inexpensive covered storage for homes and commercial metal buildings. Lean-to’s can be used for cars, boats, RV’s, farm equipment, firewood, dog kennels and more. Some lean-to roof covers have designated space for hot tubs, and back patios for BBQs and overall relaxation. When you’re designing your building, this is one addition you should take into consideration.
Framed Openings for Metal Buildings
Framed openings for prefabricated metal buildings can be ordered in any size you wish. The size you request should be the clear opening your building requires for the door or window/louver it’s intended for. Please take into consideration any shimming you’ll need to do when taking sizes into account.
All openings are field-located unless it’s been noted otherwise within the order documents. Our team at Coastal Steel can help you go over measurements during the design phase. Certain load requirements require the use of hot-rolled structural channel. When this happens, pre-drilling will be required for attachment of the trim and panel. The jambs for framed openings will extend to the next standard girt elevation or eave strut above the height of the opening for door tracks being attached.
Jamb extensions are provided if the door has a vertical lift which is specified up to twice the door height or the eave strut. Standard jamb designs can support roll up doors up to 2000 lbs.
