Planning your new Stable Yard


When designing and developing your timber stables, there is so much to consider and attention to detail throughout, when planning your new stable yard, is of paramount importance.


A common mistake is not seeking the correct advice and spending enough time at the planning stage when undertaking a new stabling project, leading to wasting money and not developing the best stable yard fit for purpose. Scotts, however, will be on hand at every stage to ensure you get the exact stables and equestrian buildings that you and your horse(s) want.


Considering your stabling options


Listed below are some initial considerations that we think will help you when planning your new stables:


  • What type of horse(s) are you designing your stables for?
  • How many stables / loose boxes do you require?
  • Where do you want to locate your stables?
  • How much land can you allocate to the development of your new stable yard?
  • What is the ideal stable layout to suit your working practices?
  • What is the prevailing wind direction?
  • What considerations need to be made to ensure the stables are in keeping with surrounding architecture or for planning permission?
  • What budget do you have for the stables (excluding the concrete base)?
  • What timescales are you working to for your new stable yard?


Once you have considered these aspects, Scotts will work with you to plan the ideal layout for your specific stabling needs. Careful planning and design at the earliest stage will ensure that your stables will be a practical, functional and attractive investment.
