What were the reasons you wanted/needed a new building?
“Mostly to store hay and a tack shed. We needed something that could be built immediately, no waiting on consents etc. Within a few days of our shed arriving, we had a tack room and hay storage built and in use.” Said Carmen.
Carmen & William have built a timber yard around their Outpost Shelter as well as an arena for riding. The Outpost Shelter sits right beside the arena so that all their tack equipment and feed is nice and handy. The tack shed has a strong plywood floor inside and the door comes with quality galvanised hinges, handle and pad bolt so it can be locked securely.
What was the main reason you choose Outpost?
“They look solid. Great kitset design, and a great price”
What is your favourite part of your Outpost Building?
“The details like corner supports and doors with extra detail.”
Has Outpost meet your expectations?
“Absolutely, our builder enjoyed putting it together and was impressed with the quality. We purchased the stable with tack shed in centre. The size of stable is too small for my large hacks, but I never intended to use them as a stable. Instead, I have a large space for covers and food bins etc. The other side has no railing and is used for hay storage.” Said Carmen.
The Outpost Shelter with Tack Shed that Carmen choose has two stalls that are 3.5m deep by 2.9m wide. They are usually used as holding stalls for grooming and feeding horses or sometimes as paddock shelter. The timber gates and rails on the front of the stalls are optional. The stall size is suitable for horses up to about 16hh. Larger designs are available.
"Our stable with tack shed arrived on time. Built in less than a week. Absolutely love the size. Timber and finish are better than the photos show. I have hay and covers on one side, tack in centre and stable on the end.
Thank you Outpost!! Very happy
Outpost Stable with Centre Tack Shed
The building that Carmen & William choose for their horse feed and equipment is pictured above. Designed for horses; it has 2 stalls with a tack shed in between them.
Then a couple of years later Carmen & William needed another shed so they came back to Outpost…
Pictured above is the 2nd Outpost kitset building that Carmen & William purchased. It is a Settler 2 Bay Stable with Tack Shed design. At 9.6m wide x 3.5m deep it is a bit bigger than their first building.
“The second building we purchased has a large shed on one end and 2 bays, which fit our ride on mower, and four wheeler, and there’s also room for firewood.” Said Carmen.

When building a new stable or stalls for horses, what they will be standing on is a very important consideration.
Horses that are kept in have to stand still on whatever is on their stall floor for long periods of time, which can be hard on their legs.
Our Upland Shed has been chosen by many of our customers to store their ride on mower, bikes and other tools & equipment. The strong design can handle the worst weather nature can through at it and it’s also relocatable!
If you have horses you’ll definitely have a bit of horse poo and might be wondering how to put it to good use. There are many different uses for horse manure around your garden. Horse manure is a great fertilizer that helps to build healthy soil.
