Do I need shelter for my horse or pony?

Horses in a bespoke stable block

 

The BHS guidelines state “all horses and ponies kept at grass require the provision of an adequate effective field shelter”.

 

Over time, we have bred more refined horses to suit our preferred disciplines making them increasingly vulnerable to temperature changes. Thin-skinned breeds from warmer countries are particularly susceptible to the cold.

 

When animals live out they use a lot of their reserves to keep warm and tend to drop weight.  A stabled horse/pony needs less food than one that is out-wintered.

 

If you are not blessed with well-drained fields, winter can quickly change smooth green pastures into rutted mud-baths ready to be colonized by weeds once spring arrives.   Winter can be a very unpleasant time for the horse-owner.

 

Keeping your horse/pony in a shelter or stable for the winter months not only preserves your ground for the spring but it helps to keep your animal in good health. If a horse gets cold, its’ immunity will drop leaving it vulnerable to illness.  It doesn’t take long for a vet’s bill to add up to the cost of field shelter!

RUBBER GRASS MATS

We are pleased to announce that we are now stocking rubber grass mats.

The mats are only £17.50 plus VAT each.

They can be collected from us in Horam or our delivery prices start at only £10.

Rubber grass mats are great for using in gateways or high usage areas where the ground often ends up poached with high use and during periods of bad weather. The design of the mats allows for the grass to grow up through so that the mats become unnoticeable. There is no groundwork required before laying the grass mats and they are easily linked together with cable ties. They can be laid on flat or contoured areas as they are flexible. Grass can then be cut over the the mats with a conventional mower.

Mats are 1 m x 1.5 m and 23 mm thick. They can be simply joined together with cable ties. These mats are also safety tested by Rapra to BS EN 1177:1998 for 3.3 meters critical fall height. They are therefore also great for use under swings and other childrens play equipment. You will also find a number of other uses for your grass mats.

NEW Mobile Field Shelter Ranges

NFF Equestrian are pleased to announce that we will be offering four ranges of Mobile Field Shelter to meet different budgets.

 

Unlike many other timber buildings available on the market, especially the more budget ranges, ALL of our mobile shelters include:-

 

  • Tanalised timber framework and cladding, pressure treated for an expected 15yr minimum life expectancy. This requires no further treatment unlike a sprayed finish that will require regular, time consuming and costly maintenance.
  • Vertical framework at maximum 610mm centres, doubled up at openings.
  • Hot dipped galvanised finish to all our metal skids. Galvanising is an extremely durable finish unlike a painted finish that can easily be damaged by hooves or during moving.
  • Stainless steel ring shanked nails for all cladding. These will outlast both galvanised and sheradised nails and do not stain the timber.
  • Galvanised joist hangers
  • Stress graded timber for roof purlins
Price lists for the new ranges will be available on the website soon. In the meantime please contact the office with your enquiry.
