Mobile Stable Blocks Our Optional Upgrades Explained

Our optional upgrades explained for mobile stable blocks , as horse owners ourselves we understand every individual’s requirement’s and budgets differ, therefore we break down the cost so you can pick and choose any upgrades you require without having the expense of  things you do not feel are needed.

Mobile stables are built to the same high specifications as our static stable blocks.

Our Optional Upgrades are as follows:

Timber Skids, our timber skids are heavy duty and constructed using 5″ x 3″ presume treated timber and come complete with galvanised tow eyes.

Galvanised steel skids, they are heavy duty, constructed from 100mm x 50mm box section galvanised steel with tow eyes fitted to enable you to move your building easily. Beware of cheaper imitation’s .

Galvanised Skids

Gable end vents, timber vents in the gable end’s to increase airflow.

Top doors, complete with galvanised fixings.

Door surround chew strips, fully galvanised surrounds for the stable door frame to eradicate chewing.

Front windows, our windows are perspex with a vent above and galvanised grills to prevent chewing. The grills can easily be removed to enable cleaning of the perspex.

Rear windows/top doors, open window in the rear of the stable which can be closed with the top door, ideal to add ventilation and a different view for your horses on nicer days, these come compete with chew surrounds to protect the exposed timber.

Roof lined, to enhance the longevity of your Onduline roof you can upgrade to have support 11mm boarding underneath, this prevents condensation and also sagging of the Onduline over a period of time.  *We also offer steel and fibre cement roofing systems.

Kick boards, as standard all our stables have 1.2 high 11mm OSB installed complete with top strips to prevent bedding etc falling down in-between the board and cladding.  Upgrades to full height 11mm OSB, 18mm OSB, Ply board and stock boarding are also available.

Lined Overhang, as standard all our apex roofs have a 950mm overhang, you can choose to have this lined in the cladding to match your building rather than it being open, this also creates a small storage area above within the stable.

Talk Grills, Grills fitted within the stable partitions to allow horses to see each other, grills are galvanised and complete with galvanised chew surrounds.

Guttering, guttering is beneficial for many reasons it prevents water ingress on the timber and puddling in front of the building taking most of the rainwater away to downpipes either end, also very handy for rainwater harvesting in a trough or container.

Ground anchors,

We highly recommend you anchor your mobile stable blocks and down.

Our  ground anchors are easy to install and remove should you wish to move the building.

They are fitted by first bolting or screwing the bracket to the building and mobile skids, then the anchor is hammered through the slot in the bracket. The slot prevents the anchor rotating out. (We will do this for you on installations )

In some areas, planning permission is needed for permanent fixed structures, for example, stables and shelters, however, using our field shelter ground anchors the shelter can be safe and still be considered to be temporary and therefore outside the planning requirements.


We also stock 12mm & 18mm high quality stable matting which can be fitted with your stables.
