About

The Stables at Northfield Stud have been designed specifically for the preparation for Thoroughbred yearlings. Working closely with Neville Monaghan, manager of Northfield Stud, we replicated the boxes that the yearlings will be in when they go to the Karaka bloodstock sales in January. This was done so that when the yearlings go to the sales they will be in a similar environment to that which they have become used to at home, helping them to feel relaxed and settled.

One of the challenges of this project was joining the existing stable block to the new stable block to create an enclosed Barn.  Like every one of our buildings this was specifically engineered which again proved the most cost effective and efficient way of achieving the desired result.

The 5 boxes and barn were completed in June/July proving that with careful management it is possible to build during the winter months.
