The right temporary stabling solution, for any event

Woodhouse Temporary Stables

Our temporary stabling lineage runs deep as we erected our first temporary stables in 1933 at The Three Counties Show.

We designed, manufactured, installed and maintained the temporary stabling for the 2014 World Equestrian Games, the London 2012 Games and the Barcelona 1992 Games.

And since 2018 we are supplying temporary stables to our US partners.

Barn Stables

12.00m² (3 x 4 m) + 4.00m aisle.

We erect these generously sized temporary barn stables in single rows, across a 4-metre aisle, under a modern curved Clearspan® roof. The barn stables provide an excellent environment for horses to relax, and superior working conditions for grooms and riders. In particular, you will appreciate enhanced temperature control and effective air circulation, bright diffused lighting and unhindered aisle access. Made using our proven Quickstable design, these temporary barn stables are safer to use, and their double walled, recycled hdpe partitions are kick-through resistant, splinterless and nail-free.

    Julie Duffas, Venues Sustainability Manager LOCOG

  • The temporary stable barns designed by Woodhouse for the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games were excellent and part of the success of the Games.

    The size of the stables, the width of the aisles and the quality of finish all contributed greatly to the horses’ comfort and safety.

  • I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for everything you have done at Greenwich Park for London 2012.

    It has been a pleasure working with you and your team, and I would have no hesitation using Woodhouse again or recommending you to others. I think your stables are first class and you rightfully received great credit from athletes and grooms alike. Your approach throughout the design, installation, use and derig was great. Nothing was ever too much for you. Please pass on my thanks to the rest of your team.
