Stall Renovation Project

UNH Horse Barn Gets a Face Lift!

Horse Barn StallThe process has begun to give the UNH Horse Barn, built in 1969, a much-needed face-lift. The original red tongue-and-groove walls topped with aluminum tracks & bars are tired and outdated. The new construction will give our students and our horses sturdy, safe accommodations and will give the facility an environment consistent with top industry standards.

The new stall components are from Classic Equine Equipment. Made from premium, heavy duty galvanized steel, their solid framed system fits beautifully into the existing stall space. With an eye to the future, these components could also be used in another location, should the farm be re-positioned on campus at some later date. The gleaming black finish of the grills and latches give the old barn a polished new look. The smooth, premium grade, naturally finished wallboards will brighten up the center aisle and the environment in every stall.

The first stall is now in place! Materials and labor for the first unit were generously donated by Jim & Lisa Mason of Ag Structures in Salisbury, NH. We are now asking friends, Alumni, and equine-related businesses and professionals to contribute to the project in support of higher education within the equine industry.

There are a total of 40 stalls in the barn. Donors can chose to sponsor an entire stall, or to contribute to the overall project at the level of their choice:

Horse Barn Stall

  • Doctorate Level -$ 2,500 (finances one entire stall unit)
  • Masters Level - $1,000
  • Bachelors Level - $500
  • Supporting Level - any amount up to $500

The UNH Foundation provides that all contributions are tax-deductible.

The UNH Equine Program will greatly appreciate any level or amount of support you can give. Our goal is to provide our students and the industry with a standard of excellence in our teaching, our facilities, our safety protocol, and of course, our level of equine care.

Donors will be listed on the Equine Program’s website, and on future promotional materials concerning this project.

Special thanks go out to Jim Mason, and to Classic Equine for getting this long-awaited project off the ground.
