Quick, simple and sturdy
– everything you need a mobile field shelter to be
Our mobile field shelters and stables are all manufactured to the same high quality as our permanent stables, but they are fully mobile and easy to tow and move around. They are ideal for any horse owner needing shelter in a paddock, temporary stabling, or a mobile solution that can be moved between fields. All timber is fully tanalised for protection and longevity, meaning your field shelters can easily last just as long as a stable.
If your issue is planning permission, why not opt for a mobile stable or shelter? In most instances, they don’t requite planning permission. This is a great way of being able to have stabling in places where you wouldn’t be able to install a permanent yard, such as land in a National Park, or land surrounding a listed building. Talk to our expert team and we can help you find the ideal option for you and your horses.

Galvanised steel skids
Unlike many other companies, we only supply galvanised steel skids on our mobile field shelters. This means they are coated and won’t rust, so they could easily last in the region of 30-40 years.
The preparation for the process involves:
- An inspection
During the process, the material is loaded onto jigs before being immersed in molten zinc at a temperature of around 450°C. This reacts with the surface to create zinc/iron alloys. Afterwards, the zinc solidifies and excess zinc is removed to give a smooth finish.
This ensures the very best results are achieved when galvanising. A centrifuge/spin galvanising process may also be used if this will be more suitable, giving you optimum protection for your mobile field shelter.
