The Pre-Fab Advantage makes it AFFORDABLE

Both you and your horses will benefit when you
add an overhang to your horse barn…

We believe that ingenuity is the key to offering the most complete and useful modular horse barns on the market.

An overhang (also referred to as a lean or lean-to) is Number One on every horse owner’s wish list when planning their modular horse barn, and none of our Amish barns is truly complete without one.

Essentially, an overhang is a roof that extends the length or width of the barn, and is either an extension of the main roof or an additional roof tier. Adding an overhang to your Horizon Structures modular horse barn is as simple as making any other customization, but horse lean tos are such a popular feature that many of our barns already incorporate them.


Barn overhangs help minimize muck and mud buildup in high-traffic areas by keeping snow and rain away.

Our roofs and lean to barns meet national code, giving them the strength and weight bearing capacity to stand up against extreme weather.


A lean-to for horses offers a great place for seating, storage, and crossties.

Use as a wash bay and keep water and dirt out of the barn.

This area also gives your vet and farrier a dry, covered space to tend to your horses, even on rainy and snowy days.


Freely turn your horses out without worrying about leaving them exposed to the elements. If unexpected bad weather shows up you can rest assure that your horses have access to safe shelter.

Plus, giving your horses more time outside will help their stalls stay cleaner, in turn cutting back on mucking, and helping you save money on bedding.

Talk about the ultimate in overhang utility!

Enclosing the entire overhang and adding sliding doors at each end has doubled the size of this barn. Add a few windows on the outside wall to flood the interior with light and what started as a simple 10×40 shedrow is now a beautiful 20×40 barn. Who wouldn’t love a spacious 10’ wide by 40’ long aisle? The possibilities are endless!

Remember: Overhangs extending more than 4’ require columns for support which means additional site  prep prior to barn delivery. Find out exactly what’s needed HERE

Lean-to shelters horses from sun, rain, snow, wind.

A 4’ Overhang – shown here on a 10×30 shedrow barn – requires no on‐site setup or extra site‐prep. It’s a great way to provide a little extra shade and protection from rain and snow.

Add an overhang to both sides of your barn! This 12×40 shedrow barn has a 10’ overhang on the front and a 4’ overhang on the back.

Enclosing part of the overhang adds more usable space for storage or even a stall. This 12×36 shedrow barn has a 10’ overhang. We enclosed 7’ to create a tack/feed room.
