A mobile field shelter offers year-round shelter for your horse from the British weather.

Mobile Field Shelters

Providing shelter in the winter and shade in the summer, a mobile field shelter is invaluable for horses, sheep and alpacas that spend any time outside in the elements.

Our field shelters are strong and sturdy but light enough to be easily moved by 4x4 or compact tractors.

Why Choose an Olson Field Shelter?

Field shelters don't require groundworks or potentially any planning permission.  Built from the same sustainably sourced, pressure treated timber that we use in our range of timber buildings, Olson Mobile Field Shelters are solid and quick to install.

With an integrated, galvanised metal skid or pressure treated timber skid and towing chain, our mobile field shelters are easy to move and reposition.

Our timber buildings are built to last and endure the rigours of daily life. In fact, we are so confident that we guarantee all our timber buildings for 5 years.

Simply Designed For You

One size does not fit all; we work with you to design your ideal mobile field shelter incorporating all the features you need to create the perfect space for you and your equine friends.

We build to order, so your design can be entirely bespoke, whilst our large stock of pre-cut timbers and materials mean that our construction lead time is quick.

We have lots of useful planning advice for building field shelters and can help to guide you through a planning application.
