1. Field Shelters
Howling winds, heavy rain, even snow and ice - just some of the weather conditions that we experience through the Winter. These cold, wet months can certainly challenge even the most experienced horse owner, so what can you do to ensure your horse is kept happy and healthy during this period?
Ensuring your horse or pony has shelter in their paddock is definitely a top priority!
Whether you choose to winter your horse outside 100% of the time, rug or don't rug or you choose to turn out during the day and bring in at night, shelter is a very important part of maintaining your horse’s condition.
Here at Ruby, we do a range of Field Shelters and Stables with a variety of sizes and configurations to suit. This means whether you have just one Shetland or a herd of Shire Horses, there's a solution to suit!

In or Out? Wet or Dry - It's Your Pony's choice!
We know some hairy native breeds love nothing more than being outside and are tough enough to cope with wintery conditions. However, there are times when even the most hardy ponies will seek shelter from torrential downpours and stormy conditions.

Another option for you the owner is to add Skids to your Field Shelter kit to make this mobile, enabling you to reposition in your field when required and in some cases to alleviate the need for planning (check your local planning authority for up-to-to-date information).

Nearly every horse owner will need stabling at sometime for their equines. As an option to bring in, groom off, overnight, shade or for veterinary purposes, a stable is often a must.' Here at Ruby we have an excellent value for money range of Stabling that comes in Kit form and so is easy and quick to erect.
Horse or Pony - we have a size to suit!
