One of our vehicles on site in the village of Wensley, North YorkshireSince the Company was founded, we have established an excellent reputation, especially within the Horseracing industry, for providing quality works at realistic rates and our Customer Care Service is first class.

Other, associated works include horse walkers, lunging rings and both office and accommodation facilities for stable staff.

OAkwood Stables, Middleham: another succcessful RAW projectStill in Middleham, RAW were privileged to win the contract to build Oakwood Stables for Sir Robert Ogden. This consisted of stabling for 35 horses and the ancillary buildings associated with a racehorse training establishment.
