Mobile field shelters are quick, simple, sturdy, and versatile sheltering solutions for horses, donkeys, goats, sheep, pigs, or llamas. We’ve also seen many customers erect mobile field shelters for alternative uses too, such as to store hay, farm machinery and general storage. Usually built on skids, mobile field shelters are easy to move around your fields or paddock making them ideal for providing shelter from both cold and heat extremities, as well as restricting grazing when needed or providing confinement following illness or injury. The best part? Mobile field shelters do not usually require any planning permission.

What makes our field shelters and mobile stables stand out?



  • Tanalised® timber All timber is pressure treated to prevent fungal decay and insect attack and ensure optimum lifespan.
  • Adjustable stable door hinges.
  • 4 x 2” roof purlins in prefabricated steel joist hangers.
  • Galvanised, barred stable windows with sliding Perspex cover.
  • Onduline roofing and roof lining.
  • Heavy-duty galvanised steel skids with towing eyes to all four corners to allow easy movement and ground anchoring if required. Unlike many other companies, we prioritise steel skids over pressure treated timber skids.
  • Choice of canopy or no canopy front on all Mobile Field Shelters.
  • Stable ventilation.
  • Our range of mobile field shelters provide a variety of sizes and options. Our in-house CAD designers will take you through the entire design process, so whether you need an 18-, 24- or 36-foot shelter your equestrian building will be uniquely designed for your bespoke needs.


As the skeleton that supports all the features within a building, quality framing is key to a strong, durable shelter. We use strong C16 strength graded, and pressure treated timber for our framing and rafters as standard.

We use fifth grade (or better) quality shiplap as the exterior cladding for our Mobile Field Shelters. It provides a watertight, smooth finish that will be less prone to splitting and shrinking in comparison to cheaper alternatives. Our pressure treated shiplap will protect the shelter interior from the most torrential of rain and fierce winds, typical of British weather, ensuring maximum life expectancy.

We use Onduline roofing which is maintenance free and extremely durable. We can also add roof lining do increase the life expectancy of the roof. Plus, it will help keep the shelter warmer in winter and cooler throughout the summer.

Easy to move

As their name suggests, Mobile Field Shelters are easy to move around which is important for paddock rotation and for using your pastureland as efficiently as possible. Horses will thrive if there is a constant patch of fresh grass available to feed on. In winter, you will benefit from moving your shelter out of boggy ground or angle away from fierce winds to create a windbreak for your horses. In summer, the shelter will provide much needed shade. Sometimes, it might just simply be a case of your horse having a favourite spot to graze on that motivates your reason to move. Whatever your reasons, our Mobile Fields Shelters are created with galvanised steel skids to make them easy to tow around from one place to another.
