1 Complete your stable set with feed and water troughs. These are made from a combination of craft sticks and balsa wood lengths and rods. This trough has been loaded up with ‘hay’, while its twin (see opposite) trough is filled with ‘water’ – just shredded blue tissue.
2 Protect your horses from the elements with a stable made from an off-the-shelf crate with a few additions such as these balsa wood stall dividers, hinged popsicle gate and walls. PS, lovin’ this simple horse blanket made from a leather offcut. It’s bound to keep your horse warm and toasty. 3 Assemble a course of easy-make jumps made from balsa wood ‘feet’, pre-drilled craft sticks and rods embellished with red and white electrical tape. Set the bar low enough for beginner riders to clear the jump and raise it for the more experienced equestrian.
