A split tennis ball
This can prevent metal clips etc. from clinking against metal poles.
Vertical Jumping Pole Holder
This clever, simple design allows you to store your poles on a wall – and it looks great.
In-Built Stable Storage
An excellent use of space (and so useful to have storage between stables) – this is an excellent idea if you’re building.
A Collapsible Bucket
Simple. Clever. Easy to store & long lasting.
Recycled Plastic Barrel Step Up
It’s not the prettiest thing, but it gets the job done, it’s easy to make and you probably have the materials lying around.
Horse Shoe Flooring
Know someone with heaps of old shoes? If you lay them into your flooring, you can add a nice little touch to a washbay.
Cleaning up is usually about the big stuff. But a lint roller can come in handy too – it’s so easy to pick up stuff that is otherwise unmovable.
Zippable Foot Covering
Hand Made Feeder
Another clever use for an old plastic barrel. Just cut some access gaps in the bottom and fill the top with hay.
Retractable Feeding Bowl
This perfect little contraption allows you to refill feed or water without entering the stall. So much easier.
Very clever. For twilight trail rides, this strip of LED lights makes your horse visible to other riders and traffic.
Arena Railing Storage
What better way to make use of the space taken up by your kickrail? Wonderful.
Great for people teaching, this stirrup can be set to accommodate more than one leg length.
Nail-Less Horse Shoes
Wouldn’t we love to avoid nails if we could? Apparently, it’s possible – with these horse shoes that clip on firmly to your horses feet.

What is Hot-Dip Galvanizing?
Hot-dip galvanizing describes the process by which steel is coated with zinc, which alloys with the surface of the steel. The steel is dipped in molten zinc, and when exposed to the atmosphere forms a strong coating that will buffet against wear and corrosion.
The process of hot-dipped galvanized steel dates back to the 1800’s, when in 1837 a French engineer took out a patent for the process of galvanizing steel. By 1850 the British galvanizing industry was consuming 10,000 tons of zinc annually for the production of galvanized steel.
Hot-dip galvanizing has only become more used over time, with 600,000 tons of zinc being consumed annually in North America to produce hot-dipped galvanized steel. Now galvanizing is found in almost every industry where steel is used. The process as a proven history of success which continues to grow in multiple applications globally.
Galvanized steel is therefore a superior product against others the industry of building and construction. This is why at Central Steel Build we hot-dip galvanize all of our components for our sheds, contributing to a better quality and longer lasting product, that protects against rust and corrosion in rural environments in Australia.
