The quality of air flow in a barn is very important to horse health. In an enclosed barn solving this problem can be challenging, and when you add the heat of the southwest sun to the equation, the outcome is often poor conditions. We believe the mare motel is the answer. Perfectly suited for the desert climate, the open design of the mare motel provides maximum protection with outstanding airflow, so even on the hottest summer days you and your horses won’t be slowed down. The versatility of a mare motel also gives you the option of adding panels to enclose sections of your barn for the winter months, foaling, or in the event of an injury.
Another great option we offer to our mare motels are misting systems—to ease those summertime woes. Misting systems lessen the impact on your horse of long hot days and are easily installed with virtually no maintenance. The cooling effect of the mist decreases stress to the horse by dropping the temperature up to 15 degrees. This is especially an asset to those with older or laminitis prone horses who benefit from cooler ground conditions. Water and electric usage is minimal and comfort for the horse and owner is maximized.
