Spring Cleaning In Your Horse Barn

Getting some spring cleaning done in your horse barn after a long, hard winter can be a great way to shake off the winter blues and get things in order for the coming spring and summer months.

Here’s some tips for spring cleaning in the barn.

Get Organized

Things tend to pile up over the winter. Take some time during your spring cleaning to get rid of clutter or unused items and organize the things you do need.

Use color schemes to organize tack and supplies by their corresponding horse; this helps prevent things from getting jumbled or confused.

Invest in hooks and labeled storage bins to get things out from off the floor or cluttering table tops in the tack room.

It’s also a good idea to take this time to restock your first-aid kits - both human and equine.

After everything has been organized and put where it goes, make sure that all staff and boarders understand the new system to help maintain it.

Deep Spring Clean

There’s nothing quite like the first beautiful day of spring after a long, cold winter. Open up all windows and doors wherever possible to allow fresh air to flow through the barn and get to work on doing a deep clean to welcome spring.

Your spring cleaning list should include:

  • Scrubbing and disinfecting all water troughs and buckets
  • Removing all bedding in stalls down to the mat before scrubbing and disinfecting
  • Clean and disinfect grooming tools
  • Sweep cobwebs and dust off the walls
  • Wash the walls
  • Drag arena

Repairs

Take a detailed look at all aspects of your property. This is a perfect time to make any repairs that are needed around the farm, such as:

  • Mend fences
  • Fill holes in pastures, paddocks and paths
  • Remove hazardous branches/fallen trees around the property
  • Make repairs to doors and windows in the barn
  • Ensure that all fire detectors are in working condition

    Genuine reviews from very happy people

    Received in quick time. Does exactly what it should do, just got to get the speed right. Any little bits missed I simply let dry out and chain harrow over. Very impressed. Could do with a tractor sized version though! Thank you for an excellent product

    Upon receiving the paddock blade, I have been nothing but impressed saving huge amounts of time and keeping the yard to the highest possible standard.
    I recommend and congratulate Paddock Blade UK for bringing this amazing tool into Horse management.

    Roland Tong

    Great bit of kit, works well in our paddocks. Looking forward to riding in all the spare time I’ll have not poo picking! Video in comments of it in action!

    Ruth Jacobs

    I was so dubious that this would work for me. I have very bumpy rig and furrow fields. I’m pleased to say I was wrong. I had to go over the field a number of times but I have a clear field and a huge pile of droppings.

    Can’t wait to use this each week to ensure my fields are kept poo free!

    Helen Chester

    Excellent purchase Received in quick time! Our fields are not flat and we have had no issues. Very impressed I will never use a wheel barrow again.
    Thank you for an excellent product and excellent customer service.

    BEST PURCHASE EVER !

    Received our paddock blade on Friday and honestly couldn’t be more thrilled with it. It’s easy to use, does a fabulous job and really couldn’t recommend it enough! To top it off the entire process was hassle free too.

    Top quality item and excellent customer service. Oh and you can do a 2 acre field that hasn’t been done in a month (or two) in under an hour!

    Jon Davis

    Awesome piece of kit and don’t know how we have gone so long without one.

    Victoria Wallace

    Paddock blade – one of the best tools ever. Easy to use, easy to tow, makes light work of the fields. Saves tonnes of time, picks up every bit and even levels the field out while it’s going. Highly Highly recommend.
