Design Handbook for Stables and Equestrian Building
In this practical new handbook, architect Keith Warth gives advice on basic stable construction, DIY stables, and the use of old buildings as well as large-scale equestrian establishments. He discusses how the purpose of the stable building is to provide conditions that maintain or improve the physical and mental well-being of the horse. A detailed explanation is given on how to ensure that, through good stable design, fresh air can be available for the animal at all times. There are also examples of how the buildings can affect aspects of hygiene, including alternative solutions for drainage and other services.Essential reading for professional horsemen, keen amateurs, equine students, or anyone contemplating building, refurbishing, or converting stables.
