Barn Hacks

The Best #BarnLifeHack You Wish You'd Thought of Sooner

Enter Lighthoof's #BarnLifeHack contest

We’ve all been there. You walk through a friend’s barn or someone else’s boarding facility and you spot that ingenious #BarnLifeHack that is so brilliant you don’t know why you hadn’t thought of it yourself. Sometimes the best barn hacks are right under our noses, and we didn’t even know we needed them.

That’s where our #BarnLifeHack contest brings all those great ideas right to you! Keeping the stable running smoothly is already a chore, why not incorporate ideas and tips to up your stable game? If we decide you’ve got the best barn hack, we’ve got loot for you.

What’s the contest?

Do you have amazing, out-of-this-world barn organization ideas? Do you have the most impressive barn lifehacks that make your boarders go “aahhhhh!”? Did you invent a home-made contraption that keeps your feed room operating at the rate and cleanliness standard of a Costco? Does your tack room look like IKEA had a blow-out sale? We absolutely want to see your brilliant fixes! Winners will be featured in our #BarnLifeHack blog, and the top five winners will receive gift cards, and our grand prize winner will also be getting some of our awesome Lighthoof Mud-Management Panels!
