Footings And Foundations

I am not an engineer or architect, but I know that if the barn is not a pole barn (the structure is attached to poles set in the ground), it’s a structure sitting on top of a footing or foundation.  This adds complexity and expense, so most horse barns are pole construction.

These images are of foundations of barns I have seen. Some are hand-laid stones, and others are solid poured concrete of different depts to level out the uneven ground underneath the barn.
