Monarch Stables provide backdrop to War Horse at BETA

War Horse provided a spell binding display at BETA International Trade show this year. Monarch Equestrian have provided the stables for the Demonstration area for the last three years, and last year provided the back drop for Monty Roberts and Martin Clunes who gave an insight into their management of horses.
This year it was the turn of other Equestrian stars to discuss plans for the Olympic year, these included Jennie Loriston-Clarke,Yogi Breisner and Mary King, but on Monday we were treated to a display with a difference! Some of the cast from War horse brought the life sized puppet horse and the skilled puppeteers transformed it in to a moving life like display . The audience could not fail to be enthrauled by the display and everyone left determined to see the stage show in London, one definately not to be missed.

Kings Troop move into new Monarch Stables at Woolwich

The Kings Troop have just moved out of their old barracks in St Johns Wood to take up residence in their new stables at Woolwich.
Monarch Equestrian have flown the flag to provide British designed and built  Internal Stables and Stalls for the specially designed barracks and have worked with the main contractors Morgan Sindall to have this facility ready for the the big move.

Monarch have provided the 96 stalls and 40 stables, the specially designed stalls have the facility to swing when required and the stables provide generous sized accommodation for the Chargers. External doors and windows have also been designed to suit the requirements of the Troop  and their horses, by working with the Architects and Builders the end result is a stunning new facility.

Monarch Handling Stocks have been installed in the fully equipped pharmacy providing an ideal area for examination and treatment, which compliment the Isolation boxes and Sick Lines.

Monarch Equestrian are honoured to have been able to provide the stables at the new Barracks and would like to wish Commanding Officer Major Mark Edward and  the Kings Troop Royal Artillery the very best as they settle in to their new base.
