22 Vital Barn Rules That Everyone Needs To Follow

The barn is a second (or first) home to many of us equestrians, and we can be very touchy about other people's behaviour when they come to visit. Misplaced saddles and brushes are one thing, but sometimes it can actually be quite dangerous for people unfamiliar with proper barn etiquette to be messing around in one. To make everybody's lives easier we've put together the 'Barn Bible' with 22 of the most important rules that need to be followed when in the barn.
