With word of mouth the best form of advertising, G E White & Sons has clearly made a big impression in the equestrian world.
Top Hickstead showjumper Shane Breen and leading racehorse trainer Gary Moore are among the equestrian clients who have recognised the company’s impressive attention to detail and ability to tackle the whole job from start to finish.
For Gary Moore, looking after 100 horses and running a busy stables was more than enough. He left G E White & Sons to get on with building his new barn – right down to asking them to install the stables – which came without any instructions!
The sand school, stable block and tack room at Hickstead Place is arguably the most impressive project completed by G E White & Sons, and is certainly one of the finest equestrian complexes in the area. Gary and Jason even brought in a specialist joiner to install a solid
oak countertop in the tack room that would not look out of place in an upmarket kitchen.
CASE STUDY: HAY STORE FOR LORD RUFUS ALBERNARLE
The 26m by 24m hay store with 6m lean-to extension built for Lord Rufus Albemarle
at Hurst Barns Farm, East Chiltington, features custom cut Yorkshire boarding that allows flexible access from all sides of the building. The galvanised steel barn has a fibre cement roof designed to take solar PV panels at some point in the future.
CASE STUDY: STABLES & SAND SCHOOL FOR BREEN EQUESTRIAN
The new stable block, sand school and tack room built for Breen Equestrian at Hickstead Place is an impressive development that exudes quality and has been designed with convenience at its heart. The 48m by 24m sand school sits above a tank that collects rainwater from the roof and then uses it to keep the sand moist and supply the washdown bay in the adjacent stables, while the solid oak counter tops in the tack room add to its luxury feel.

ARUNDEL EQUINE HOSPITAL
Main contractors Bell & Sons Construction turned to G E White & Sons for the steelwork and cladding for this impressive new purpose built, state-of-the-art equine hospital at Ashington in West Sussex.
The new building, which includes accommodation blocks, a surgery and outbuildings, has allowed the practice to expand services on offer and move closer to its customer base. It has recently changed its name to Sussex Equine Hospital.
