Equestrian & Rural Services

Being situated in the heart of the countryside means we also have extensive experience working in rural areas and on projects tailored to rural needs. We are frequently involved in projects relating to equestrian development, whether this is for stud farms, livery stables, or for personal use.

Navigating the policy framework for equestrian facilities can be a complex process. We use our expertise in projects ranging from entire new complexes to individual stables, arenas, manèges, horse walkers/exercisers, storage barns and other equestrian facilities. This also extends to gaining planning permission for equestrian workers’ homes where houses would not normally be permitted.
