Hutt Valley RDA approached Outpost Buildings about stall options for sick or injured horses, after seeing a completed Outpost stall in their local area.
The building they chose is the Hunter style Stable pictured here with Permanent Green Colorsteel roofing. Here’s what Bronwyn, Centre Coordinator and Head Coach had to say…
“We fell in love with the Hunter Stalls as they were larger than normal and very well constructed.
We looked at various other options but decided that the Hunter Stalls were the right type for our current environment (matched the look of our Hay Barn and Indoor Arena), the right price and easy to obtain and erect.
Outpost Buildings were very supportive to us through the consultation and pre-build stage and nothing was a problem when I asked some very non-builder type questions.
We were very lucky to secure some funding to purchase the kitset, and then to find a builder who would put them up. The stalls were completed in February 2021 and are now in use.
Thank you Outpost Buildings – you guys rock.
Cheers Bronwyn Hussey Centre Coordinator and Head Coach”
Hutt Valley RDA got some local builders to assemble their Outpost Stable kitset building. They laid a concrete foundation for it as they wanted it to be a permanent position for the building and they wanted low maintenance flooring. They have installed rubber mats on the floor of their stable to make it more comfortable for their horses.
Hunter Stables from Outpost Buildings have a mono pitch roof line and strong plywood walls all round. The high roof on the front of these stables and spacious stall sizes are great for large horses. The back wall of the stable is reinforced with plywood kickboards to reduce the risk of damage to the building or injury to your horses from kicking. Hunter Stables can be used as an open paddock shelter or with gates and rails added to make them into stalls as Hutt Valley RDA have.
There is also an option available to have a tack shed on one end of the Hunter Stable pictured below.

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.
We love hearing from our customers and what they’ve done with their Outpost buildings. For our latest blog, we spoke to Loreen from Auckland about her experience with Outpost Buildings. Here’s what she had to say…
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.
