Internal stables are Stable Frontages and Partitions designed to be installed into an existing barn. The Cheval Liberte internal stables enable agricultural buildings to be partitioned and converted into indoor horse stabling. Our flexible range is ideal for converting a redundant agricultural building into high quality internal equine housing, whether that be for personal use or as a revenue-earning decision. Indoor stables are a popular choice for livery yards, veterinary practices and all keen equestrians.
Our range of internal stabling is unrivalled for strength, durability and practicality in design and construction. The erection of the frontages and partitions is straightforward and will cause minimum fuss and disruption. We offer standard and bespoke sizes. Our extensive knowledge and experienced installation team mean we always provide a stable layout that optimises your space. All our customers are valuable to us, whether it’s one replacement front, a couple of stables or a brand new livery set up; we work with every customer personally and effectively.
We have two key ranges of Internal Stables, Club and Prestige. Each of the ranges is made up of various styles of frontages to suit your horses, budget and aesthetic preferences. Both ranges provide exceptional strength, durability and unbeatable practicality in assembly, installation and operation.
All our Internal Stables are available in pressure treated Pine wood, Oak or Denya hardwood or coloured recycled plastic.
To ensure that our stables don’t just look great but also offer maximum comfortable and convenience we offer a wide selection of accessories. These can be configured to ensure that the individual stables meet the needs of both owners and horses. See more details of our stable accessories.
Here at Cheval Liberté UK, we pride ourselves on offering affordable, bespoke internal stabling that makes optimal use of any potential space!
How quickly we can deliver your new internal stabling will depend on the time of year and if we hold stock of the design that you require. We hold a large stock of the most popular internal stable partitions and frontages in the UK. If it is not in stock then availability of the components and raw materials can affect the speed with which we can supply the products. We always suggest that you give us a call then we can give you a more exact time.
The cost of internal stabling can start from as little as £1000 if you just want a simple frontage and partition in the corner of a existing building and you install it yourself. This can go up to tens of thousands for a more complex project for housing multiple horses.
Prices for many of our partitions and frontages are shown on this site in our catalogue. Select the material, width and number of stable panels that you think you need and add them to your shopping basket to get an indication of the total cost of your project. You can then request a more detailed quote or contact us to discuss the details.
As standard our Club internal stables, with hinged doors, come with a sliding bolt at the top and a kick bolt at the bottom. This is similar on the Prestige however the top bolt is recessed.
A well-constructed and maintained stable can offer your horse a place of safety that it finds comforting as well as protection from the weather. It also enables you more control of your horses’ diet and their environment. Ultimately the requirement for a stable depends on the preferences and needs of your horse. Read more in our blog post here.
Our Club Range Internal Stables come with a feeding hole in the front panel as standard. This is the perfect width for feeding buckets to be hooked onto, or for dropping hay into hay mangers to allow for feeding from outside the stables where necessary.
It also makes a great pop hole for a quick goodnight kiss!
With internal stable you aren’t actually building a new infrastructure and this often tricks people into thinking planning permission may not be necessary. One thing you must be aware of is the need to declare a change in use. Unfortunately, stabling does not easily fall into the category of permitted development rights, that agricultural buildings generally do.
“A change of use of land or buildings requires planning permission if it constitutes a material change of use. There is no statutory definition of ‘material change of use’; however, it is linked to the significance of a change and the resulting impact on the use of land and buildings. Whether a material change of use has taken place is a matter of fact and degree and this will be determined on the individual merits of a case. If planning permission is required for change of use, there may be permitted development rights which allow change of use without having to make a planning application.” GOV.UK, 2019.
