Between the late 18th and mid 20th centuries, horses were the main source of power on the land.

Although horses could be left outside in warmer weather, they were normally in stables when they were not working. Within the stables, each animal had its own stall where it was fed and groomed.

Stables were thus an essential part of the farm steading. All the things needed to enable the horse to work were kept there, such as horse collars, bridles and saddles.
