At Woodhouse, the end of the season doesn’t mean the end of our work – this is when we start the all-important preparation for the following year. In September, we grade all our Clearspan® marquee covers, tag them and plan their maintenance. We do this while they are still in use on site, because the natural light helps us assess their condition. Then, using our giant 7.4-metre Havencrown PVC washing machine, we clean and dry the covers. Next, we inspect for rips and pin-holes – and repair them on the spot or set them aside for replacement. We also inspect the aluminium frames and steel connections, base-plates and stakes, before cleaning and stacking them away.
Our grandstands go through the same maintenance programme, but we take a different approach for our temporary stabling – because of the sheer volume (over 3,000 of them) and their style of construction. We inspect, grade, wash and repair the PVC roof covers in a similar way to the marquee covers, and then inspect the stable doors, sides and rear partition walls for any damage, repairing or replacing as necessary. Horses do more damage to timber stables, so we rigorously inspect all the doors, sides and back sections, and rebuild around a third of them each year.
We also inspect, clean and, where necessary, replace our Quicktrack and Horse Walks, along with our wide range of accessories. So everything is fit for purpose, ready for the next time you need them at your venue.

On behalf of the Organising committee, I’d like to thank you for the great job Woodhouse has done for the FEI Alltech WEG 2014 in Normandy. I really appreciated the commitment of your teams that have shown high professionalism in the way they’ve managed the stabling facilities. I hope that we’ll have the opportunity to work together again soon.
