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.
