The stables will be used when the King’s Troop is making ceremonial appearances in central London at venues including Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace. They will be dismantled when not in use.

The King’s Troop recently left their St Johns Wood Barracks after 65 years and moved to a purpose built equestrian training facility in the Woolwich Garrison.

Peter Cook, general manager at Woodhouse, said: "This was a fantastic project to be involved in, and one which required a great deal of knowledge and technical expertise due to the limited space available in Wellington Barracks. They were designed to be assembled quickly by the Troop personnel and then dismantled and stored on site when not in use."
