Got an afternoon spare and some old horse shoes lying around?
We’ve collected some clever, easy-to-do projects that recycle horse shoes.
Although some require welding, many require nothing but nails & glue. See the photos below:
14 Clever Things Every Horse Owner Should Know About
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.
