In Age of Empires and the Rise of Rome expansion, the Stable is one of the major types of military buildings. Once the building is constructed, it produces cavalry including Chariots, Cavalry and War Elephants. It is also used to upgrade cavalry to a stronger version of themselves. Ultimate units such as the Armored Elephant and the Cataphract can only be trained once the Iron Age is reached. It can be built in the Tool Age once the Barracks are built beforehand.

The Stable in Age of Empires II is primarily designed to train cavalry units. It is available from Feudal Age onward, and can also be used to garrison units as they're trained. It can build Knights, Camels, and Scout Cavalry. It can also upgrade these units. The Stable is not avaliable to the Mesoamerican Aztecs and Mayans. If you place one of these in the Scenario Editor, it would look Central European and will be unable to produce units.
As the Middle Ages continued, the rise in importance of mounted warriors created demand for larger numbers of horses, which was bred and maintained at the stable. A variety of horses were bred, including horses for long-distance travel, fast horses for quick movement, and the heavy charger. Scout and light cavalry units needed quick horses with lots of stamina. Heavy chargers of great strength were required to carry fully armored knights into a charge. Mounted warriors trained at the stable as well, learning the skills of fighting from horseback with spear, lance, sword, flail, mace, and hammer. In other parts of the world, camels and elephants were bred and maintained for mounted combat.
