German term or phrase: Außenbox (area: horse riding)
German definition: Eine Box mit direktem Zugang von der Außenseite des Stalles. Auch eine separat gebaute Einzelbox oder Boxenreihe, meist mit geteilter Tür, bezeichnet man als Außenbox. Die Pferde bekommen bei geöffneter Obertür frische Luft, Licht und Sicht; bei im Stallinneren liegenden Boxen ist dies nur möglich, wenn große Fenster vorhanden sind und diese regelmäßig offen gehalten werden. Vor Außenboxen kann man meist auch einen Auslauf anlegen.

English definition: A box with access from the outside, i.e. not from within the horse stable. Also used for a separately build single box or row of boxes, often with divided stable door.

In the former case, the door ought to be in two parts so that the upper portion can be hooked back and left open, allowing the horse to look out over the lower portion...
Grilles are sometimes fastened across the open top half of the door to prevent the horse jumping out, biting at passers-by or 'weaving'..."
