Stable Bases and Yards

We frequently get asked to construct full equestrian yards, typically starting with a blank site.  Other construction projects have involved converting disused farmyards into fully functional equestrian businesses.

Whether you require purely a stable base or additional yard facilities, we are happy to tailor a solution that perfectly matches your requirements.   These may include the following:

  • Concrete Yard and Stable Base
  • Sand School
  • Stabling
  • Storage
  • Muck Storage
  • Roadways

Stable Base Construction Process

Excavation

  • Accurate measurement and leveling of site using laser level technology
  • Top soil excavation and storage for relocation

Construction

  • Set forms to correct levels in accordance with building
  • Lay geo-textile membrane (soil/stone separator)
  • Build up area with type 1 stone to achieve a level, stable site for concrete base
  • Lay 1000 gauge damp proof membrane (Stable Base Only)
  • Install concrete including A142 reinforcing
  • We only use a reinforced, fibre concrete, which has the benefit of preventing the degrading effect of horse urine on the stable base.
  • Install necessary drainage channels leading to a soak-away
  • Construct single coarse brickwork according to requirements (for stable only)

Fencing

  • Post and rail fencing installed to the perimeter of yard
  • Install 3.6m gate

The finish

  • The site is left clean and tidy
  • Reseeding of the outer perimeter is sometimes required
