Bed-Down Premium

Extra large carefully graded softwood shavings create a soft, absorbent and naturally unpalatable bedding that’s dust-free and protects all-round equine health - the favourite bedding of jocky clubs world wide!

Bed-Down Premium Equine Bedding

Bed-Down Premium bedding is manufactured from top quality large flaked, white softwood shavings. Softwood shavings make an excellent absorbent, cushioning and attractive bed for your horse. Premium also has a pleasant natural fragrance giving a fresh environment in your horse’s stable.

Premium Benefits
Bed-Down Premium undergoes our unique EASY BREATHE™ multiple dust extraction process to safeguard your horse’s respiratory health. Bale after bale you can be sure that Bed-Down Premium always contains clean, soft and absorbent shavings which offer great value.

Bed-Down Premium is also naturally unpalatable making it suitable for horses on a restricted diet.

Environmentally Friendly
Bed-Down Premium is purpose made and is not a by-product or waste material. Premium degrades in 4 – 8 months making your muck heap smaller.

How to make the perfect Premium bed

You can make a fresh Bed-Down bed on a clean rubber mat or conventional stable floor, or gradually combine with other bedding as part of your usual maintenance routine. You’ll be able to appreciate the full product benefits once you’ve removed all existing bedding.

How many bags will I need to create a new bed?
You’ll need about 6 Classic Bales for a typical 12’ x 12’ (3.6m x 3.6m) stable. This will create a deep comfy bed once the bedding is spread out and fluffed up.

How do I replace an existing bed with new Bed-Down bales?
Add new bedding to the outside of the bed, gradually moving existing bedding towards the centre as more new bedding is added. Keep adding new bedding to the outside of the bed until all old bedding has been removed. 

What’s the most economical way to maintain a clean, dry bed in my stable?

  • To maintain a good depth, add 1-1.5 fresh Classic Bales per week (depending on your horse’s needs).
  • Remove droppings and tidy the bed daily, remembering to fluff the bedding in the areas you’ve cleaned.
  • Remove wet bedding patches weekly, topping up with fresh Bed-Down bedding.

You can easily split a Classic 20kg Bale in half by following the instructions on the side of the packaging – or add extra freshness and convenience by using a Handy 10kg Bale.


Premium Features

The features & benefits of using Bed-Down Premium bedding...

After careful grading for size, colour and thickness Bed-Down Premium Shavings then undergo an innovative dust extraction process to ensure consistency, cleanliness and high air quality within the stable.

Our unique advanced multiple dust extraction process, Easy Breathe™, removes hazardous airborne dust particles to protect sensitive equine respiration. Even better, we combine it with Microcote™, a patented additive designed to reduce dust particles created by the general day to day wear on any bedding by “trapping” those and preventing them being inhaled by the horse.

Through stringent monitoring we are able to produce a highly absorbent dust free cushioning base that prevents injury and musculo-skeletal problems. The flakes are dried using a slow and consistent drying process to offer optimal absorption and prevents over-drying of the hoof wall. Large softwood flakes make a comfortable and warm bed that is pleasantly naturally fragrant. Cushioning shavings create a supportive bed for joint and hoof health.

Suitable for horses on a restricted diet, the large softwood flakes are naturally unpalatable.

Sustainable bedding made from Norfolk wheat straw and softwood shavings, a by-product of a local wood mill. Environmentally friendly bedding degrades within 4 to 8 months, keeping waste to a minimum and reducing the size of your muck heap! And of course our straw is sourced as locally as possible in Norfolk to minimise its environmental impact.

Available from our stockists in Classic Bale (20kg) and Handy Bale (10kg) sizes.
