—In-game description

The Stable is a military building in Age of Empires III that trains and upgrades cavalry. It becomes available upon reaching the Commerce Age.

The Haudenosaunee and Lakota build the Corral, which is identical in function. The Chinese train banner armies containing cavalry through the War Academy, while the Indians build the Caravanserai, which trains camel and elephant units.

The Aztecs and Incas lack cavalry units and do not build Stables.

History[edit | edit source]

A stable is a building in which animals (typically horses) are housed. Horses were vital to survival in the New World and every inn, home, and town had to have stables to shelter these important animals. Horses were used for travel, plowing fields, and for warfare up until the mid-twentieth century.

The Quartering Acts, passed by British Parliament in 1765, allowed British soldiers to occupy living space in just about any building they deemed suitable for housing.
