This is one of the most impressive indoors we’ve built, with a 6 stall stable, a barn and dressage arena combined into a single space.
The entrance of the building looks fantastic, where two large wood sliding doors have been set up to greet riders. The huge façade was made of a deep blue metal, which looks great against the trees and grass surrounding the complex. It’s the perfect kind of understated style; it looks great without breaking up the overall feel of the environment.
The interior features a large sized dressage arena and a collection of horse stalls.
We loved working on this project with The Horse Shed Shop, who project managed this build on behalf of gold medal grand prix dressage rider Lone Joergensen. It’s always a satisfying experience to see such a grand project come together so perfectly.
Finding a way to realise our clients’ dreams is exactly what Central Steel Build is about. This is the perfect example of what happens when we work with a client to produce something truly great.
Creative, Clever uses for old Baling Twine
1. Make a door mat.
This is definitely the work of someone who is very skilled (and has a lot of different colours of baling twine). Definitely a show-piece of twine mastery to work your way up to.
Find out how to make a baling twine welcome mat here.
The simplest and easiest way to make use of baling twine. Just thread it through your shoes and you’re ready to go.
Great for fixing up a broken set of laces.
3. A halter.
This is certainly one to be careful of – the twine could be too rough against your horses skin. But if you’re in emergency need of a halter and all you have is baling twine – this is a solution.
4. A hay feeder.
Grab an old barrel, remove the bottom and attach a hand-woven baling twine net.
That’s all there is to it.
5. A lead.
This one requires a bit of braiding and weaving skill, but it makes a very professional-looking lead that can be quite useful.
Definitely worth experimenting with this idea.
Complete honesty: these are not the most attractive shoes I have seen in my entire like.
But if you found yourself bare-footed in a barn with twine and hours to spare, they might be exactly what you need.
7. A woven chair.
Chairs are often woven from wicker or straw – why not do the same with baling twine? This simple pattern looks neat, tidy, and isn’t too difficult.
8. A crochet mandala mat.
Anything that can be made from rope or wool can pretty much be made from baling twine. This beautiful mat would make a very nice addition to any barn (or any home, for that matter).
These are adorable, a very nice addition to the outdoors spring decor.
Just make sure your horse doesn’t find them!
10. A hay net.
Using some simple knotting techniques, you can put together a rough hay net to suspend for your horses.
See exactly how you can do this here.
