We erected our first temporary stables in 1933 at The Three Counties Show. Woodhouse was the leading supplier back then – and we still are today, innovating and making our own specialist equestrian products. We designed, manufactured, installed and maintained the temporary stabling for the London 2012 Olympics, the Barcelona 1992 Olympics, and the 2014 World Equestrian Games.
It took over six decades of usage, trial, and error to improve on the original Woodhouse timber stable, but our Quick tables are a worthy successor. Introduced in 1999, they are our first nail-free and kick-through resistant temporary stables. As well as being highly durable and hygienic, they also improved safety and security with their sustainable sourced kick-through resistant, recycled plastic partitions and doors. Then, in 2008 at Hickstead, we launched our Barn Stables, in response to demand for spacious indoor stabling, offering protection from the erratic UK weather conditions. As with all our new products, we developed our Barn Stables in consultation with our clients, and with practical input from our experienced site foremen. This innovation helped us win the international tender for the London 2012 Games, and we have now developed the concept further to create a secure Vets Block with treatment stables, an inspection area, and a secure, hard-roofed office.
