The Prince’s magnificent Stables are now so far finished, that the Royal Stud, at least such of his Royal Highness’s Horses as are left at Brighton, are stabled there: These elegant buildings comprize sixty-one stalls, including losse stables, viz. 38 for hunters and other saddle horses, with doors opening into the area beneath the dome; and 23 for coach horses, opening into a square yard of the eastern wing.  The western wing, not yet finished, will comprise a spacious riding-house, with appropriate apartments; and the whole when completed, will form the grandest pile of buildings for equestrian accomodation in Europe.

From The Sussex Weekly Advertiser, 1806
