Wood Pellets for Horse Bedding

We have been supplying wood pellets for horse and animal bedding for over 6 years throughout the UK. We strongly believe our wood pellets are the best on the market.

  • Our pellets are the most absorbent 
  • Our pellets start white and stay light

Our wood pellets are ideally suited for use on either rubber matting or concrete floors

For a 12 x 12 stable with rubber matting you will only need 3 - 4 bags of pellets to start your bag and then around a bag a week thereafter.

How to use wood pellets as horse bedding

If a mat is being used you will require 6 bags. If no mat is being used you will require 8 bags.

Empty these all over the stable floor and fork the pellets evenly. 

Add approximately 20-25 litres of water.  Wait 15minutes for the pellets to fully expand and the bedding is ready to use.

You will only need to take out the very wet bits from the centre of the wet patch after a few days or even a week. Depending on how wet your horse is and how long he is stabled, leave the damp patches in and again mix in with the dry.

As the bedding is so absorbent, it takes moisture from the droppings, so when you muck out take care to pick up just the droppings pile, avoiding taking too much bedding with it. Gently shake off any clean bedding from the fork. Don’t shake, toss the droppings on the fork as you do with shavings, otherwise the droppings will break up into little pieces that are then too small to pick up.

You will find that the pellets will continue to break down and the bed will get deeper over the first few days.

When you feel the bed needs more bedding, simply add more dry pellets and mix into the existing bed

without wetting and these will break down over the next few days.

If you find the bed seems overly dry or dusty, make sure you are thoroughly mixing the wet with the dry bedding or,

if necessary, add a little more water and mix. 

If the bed is too dark or is becoming wet, take out the very wet patches and add more dry pellets
