What makes Bed-Down different from other horse bedding brands?
UNIQUE EASYBREATHE™ DUST EXTRACTION TECHNOLOGY
Why is EASYBREATHE™ essential for your horse?
- To help protect your horse’s sensitive respiratory tract against developing harmful respiratory conditions caused by elevated dust levels
- Prevention is better than cure as vet bills are very costly
- To help your horse breathe easier during daily exercise and competitions
- To provide a safe, clean environment for your horse in the stable
Remember that hay can also contain dust and mould spores so ensure your horse has access to good quality, clean hay.
REVOLUTIONARY DUST-LOCK TECHNOLOGY
Uniquely found in Excel Plus bales
Dust in the stable can be generated by inadequately dust extracted bedding, daily wear and tear on any bedding material and dust brought in by you and your horse. Microcote™ is our patented SECRET ingredient designed to reduce airborne dust particles by locking up dust after the dust extraction process helping to prevent dust and spores being inhaled by your horse.
Why use Bed-Down Excel Plus?
Because prevention is better than cure. Excel Plus has been designed to:
- Aid horses with or who are susceptible to respiratory issues such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and ‘heaves’ The disease is similar to asthma in humans and is a common reason for some horses persistent coughing.
- Also suitable for horses who compete at a high or strenuous level such as racing, endurance, driving, showjumping and eventing where the horses respiratory health is paramount.
- Better still Microcote™ is completely safe for your horse.
SPRING BACK TECHNOLOGY
Found in Excel and Excel Plus
Spring back technology helps the bedding recover more quickly once compressed by your horse’s weight, quickly bouncing back close to its original form. This provides a consistent, cushioning, and supportive bed to keep your horse super comfortable in the stable.
- Encourages your horse to lie down and rest after exercise to help aid recovery
- To support the hoof and frog encouraging healthy blood flow by cupping up into the hoof
- Essential support and cushioning for horses with Laminitis
- To provide needed support for horses’ joints and ligaments.

Found in Rapasorb
Our state-of-the-art manufacturing plant uses advanced technology to uniquely process rape straw into Rapasorb making it highly absorbent, to aid with horses who tend to be more wet in the stable.
- Rapasorb is 33% more absorbent than competitor brands, showing not all rape straw bedding is equally absorbent
- Can help with younger horses who tend to box walk and pull the wet up from underneath
- Helps lower ammonia levels because of the higher absorbency qualities which can dramatically affect your horse’s breathing
- The surface of the bed remains dry drawing the wet and urea away protecting, your horses’ hooves
