What Are Horse Field Shelters?
Horse field shelters are conventional timber buildings, designed and built with the purpose of providing shelter for horses in fields, as well as other animals such as goats, donkeys and llamas. In addition to the timber framework, additional features such as a heavy-duty metal onduline roof, galvanised steel skids, and guttering are also common.
Static field shelters offer optimal, year-round weather protection for your horses when they’re exposed to the elements in outdoor paddocks. Built using the highest standard of long-lasting timber, a Prime Stables field shelter can also be designed to include supplementary areas such as food stores and tack rooms.
As opposed to our mobile field shelters or mobile stables, which rest on galvanised steel skids and can be easily transported using towing frames, a static horse field shelter is a permanent structure.
For this reason, a static field shelter does require some groundwork preparation. The most economical option is to use railway sleepers to create a perimeter base for the walls to sit on. Alternatively, a concrete base with a single course of bricks can be laid before the structure is built. For each option, on receipt of the deposit, we will provide you with a plan for your ground worker to follow.
Our static field shelters can be installed as stand-alone, free-standing buildings or incorporated within your stable block. Our bespoke service means that we are flexible with the dimensions of your field shelter. For example, a field shelter for two medium horses should measure around 7.2m x 3.6m as a guideline, whilst a field shelter for three medium horses would need to measure around 10.9m x 3.6m.
What Are the Benefits of a Horse Field Shelter?
There are many reasons why horse owners opt for a Prime Stables horse field shelter to house their horses. Depending on usage, advantages include:
- Affordability: As timber field shelters are significantly quicker and easier to construct than more complex structures, such as American barns, they are a more affordable option
- Ventilation: Timber buildings ensure excellent ventilation for your horses year-round. Well-insulated in the winter and cool in the summer, a timber horse field shelter is a versatile way to protect your horses
- Durability: Our high-quality timber horse field shelters are designed and built to withstand the test of time and provide shelter for years to come

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I Need Planning Permission for a Horse Field Shelter in the UK?
The main difference between our mobile shelters and static horse field shelters is that the latter is a permanent construction. Although there can be exceptions, you should therefore expect to request planning permission ahead of construction to ensure that you have the correct authorisation to build a permanent structure.
Our expert team can provide further information on planning permission requirements when buying a Prime Stables horse field shelter.
