The Novice range
– your perfect first stable

Our Novice range is ideal for smaller horses up to 16 hands and makes the perfect first stable. Whilst the Novice range is simple, it is by no means any lower in quality; we use the same grade of materials that we use for all our stable ranges. You don’t need to worry about outgrowing your stable, either. If you find that you need a bigger stable with additional features as time goes on, you can easily add to and develop your Novice boxes. Just let us know and we can create new plans based on the stables we’ve already installed.

    Key benefits of the
    Novice range

    For an entry-level stable, the Novice range is incredibly good value for money.
    These are the main reasons why our clients choose a stable from this range:

    Galvanised, steel mesh windows with sliding Perspex cover

    • Regulates ventilation throughout the year


    Tanalised® timber as standard

    • Protects against fungal decay and insect attack
    • Minimum grade C16 timbers for framing and rafters
    • CLS (rounded and smooth corners for better appearance)
    • Shiplap cladding is 5th grade or better


    Stable ventilation

    • Louvre stable vent positioned high up underneath the canopy to protect against wind-driven rain
    • Increased airflow


    4′ front canopy

    • Offers weather protection from rain and direct sun

    Is the Novice range right for you?

    We work hard to understand our clients’ exact needs and to make sure each and every person finds the perfect stable for their horses. To help, we have put together a guide showing the key features of our Novice range in comparison to our other stable ranges.

    Let us take care of the
    design process

    We have in-house designers who will take care of the design of your stable.
    Just tell us how many horses you want to house, and any other requirements you have for your stables, and we will do the rest. Equally, if you already know exactly what you want, tell us and we will make it happen.

    The design process
