Overlooking the Teignbridge estuary and on the edge of Dartmoor National Park this new quarantine facility provides exemplar standards of care for the Mare and Foal sanctuaries rescued horses. The facility was established to manage and maintain the wellbeing of animals across 3 sites. All newly rescued horses pass through the facility before being introduced to the resident herds.

Constructed using sustainably sourced timber and recycled fly ash concrete the quarantine requirements of the facility provided many unique challenges that were overcome through close communication with staff and veterinary specialists across the country.

Carefully linked spaces, robust construction and easily maintainable facilities create light, hygienic and pleasant stables for the horses to stay during periods of quarantine
