Retaining Walls Of Horse Barns

When a structure is built into a hill then there needs to be a retaining wall. This prevents the hill that was cut into from moving down into the structure causing damage.  An engineer is needed for this.  Old barns (horse and dairy) in the northeast where I come from often cut the hill away and made a rock wall as the retaining wall.  This wall would then become the foundation for the barn as well as the back wall of the stall.
