Deciding to design and build your own yard is an exciting prospect. You can finally have the layout and style you want. No more awkward stable doors or forgetting which door is the Tack Room and which is the W/C!Aside from the Stables, Tack Room and Hay Storage, there are some other spaces you may want to consider; for example, a Wash Down Bay/Solarium, an Office/Staff Room or even an Archway.

This month we will focus on Transverse Archways and Wash Down Bays:Transverse Archways create an attractive change in roof line and allow access through your Stables, i.e to a ménage, fields or even a muck heap. Tall enough to ride or drive through they can be a versatile covered space.
