Chapelstone Equestrian Construction design, manufacture and install stables and arenas to a very high standard throughout the south of England. Much of our business comes to us via word of mouth recommendation. Our customers tell us they are impressed with our attention to detail, the quality of our materials and craftsmanship, and the finishing touches that make their installations beautiful, workable and most importantly, safe environments for their horses and themselves. In addition to the stables we also construct other timber outbuildings, such as field shelters, hay barns, tack rooms, dog kennels and runs, garden rooms, washdown areas and more. Arenas are planned and constructed with meticulous attention to detail – the base, the drainage and the use of the correct materials must be right before the surface goes down. We know that there can be no shortcuts on this element of the build. We can provide you with sand and fibre surfaces and sand and rubber. We also supply arena rakes designed by us to keep your surface well maintained for years to come. “The arena you put in seven years ago still rides fantastic even through the summer months…” Anna We have our own in house craftsmen to manufacture and erect timber buildings to the specification you have requested. We also have our own team of groundworkers, who have years of experience in installing arenas and laying bases for stables and other buildings. We also provide fencing, driveways, parking and turning areas. In fact, just about anything you may need to complete your dream equestrian yard. “If you want a yard built to your own specifications I would recommend speaking to Chapelstone for a bespoke service…” Cathy Evans (BHSII) Our ‘tagline’ is Run by Horse People for Horse People. Many of the staff at Chapelstone own or have previously owned horses, or ride regularly and are immersed in the equestrian lifestyle. This love of equines coupled with our construction knowledge means we have a real understanding of how important your horses are to you, and know what it takes to make the layout of an equestrian facility flow perfectly. We have been in business for fifteen years, and have built huge commercial yards and small, private stables. Some of our customers have taken advantage of our design and planning department and have handed the entire project over to us and have enjoyed a full turnkey service. Other customers have simply wanted a stable base laid, or asked for a field shelter, or have wanted an existing arena re-surfaced. Chapelstone are also your first stop for ThirstyBed bedding, SolarMate solar equestrian lighting and Hotline electric fencing and stable mats. We can also install solariums, horse walkers, showers, arena & stable solar lighting and watering systems. Whatever you are looking for, contact us at Chapelstone for an informal chat.
