Any subject relating to horses is surrounded by many opposing theories, and the design and construction of stables is no exception. Fortunately, we have considerable in-house experience and this was applied to this project. Seven loose boxes, a foaling box and ancillary storage, have been constructed, on three sides of a paved courtyard, behind our studios. The buildings are of brick construction with a slate roof to match the existing barns. A menage, and riding on to the open spaces of the New Forest, can be accessed directly from the yard.
