Bedmax Shavings

BEDMAX shavings are large flake pine shavings, purpose made to provide an ideal bedding for horses and ponies.

They are made at three dedicated BEDMAX production plants in the UK, from fresh timber sourced from renewable UK forestry. BEDMAX shavings were developed to offer owners a natural bedding that would help address the issues that threaten the health and welfare of horses in stables.

I have used many brands over the years but have always returned to Bedmax as the quality never changes and they are always guaranteed to be dust free. I am sure our horses, staff and event competitors appreciate all these benefits.

Features and Benefits

Bedding is potentially the biggest source of dust in the stable, and dust can impair or seriously damage your horse’s respiratory system. BEDMAX has one of the lowest levels of dust and spores on the market.
Your horse’s hooves need firm, resilient support. Our larger flakes provide it. We also dry BEDMAX to a controlled moisture content to prevent hooves from drying out and cracking.
Our larger shavings help drain urine from the surface to be absorbed by smaller shavings at a lower level. This keeps the surface dry and reduces the risk ammonia poses to your horse’s lungs and hooves.
BEDMAX shavings help create a clean, supportive bed that encourages horses to lie down and rest, and cushions hocks and other joints from damage.
Horses in stables need to be able to lie down to achieve deep REM sleep. A comfortable, clean, natural bed enables horses to lie down and rest properly and safely.
Maintaining hygiene effectively is crucial and difficult. We make BEDMAX shavings from fresh pine because pine offers unique antibacterial action against harmful bacteria and fungi. We also dry our shavings at sterilising temperatures during production.


The Owners Choice

In separate surveys of bedding preferences in the UK carried out by Horse & Hound and the British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA) in October and December 2011, more owners in both surveys chose BEDMAX shavings than any other brand of purpose-made bedding.

The Professionals Choice

BEDMAX is also the choice of bedding for many leading racing trainers in the UK, Ireland, France and Hong Kong, and for racecourses and major horse trials organisers who provide bedding for the horses competing at their venues.

Bilbo Baggins breathes again on BEDMAX

For Angie Tomlin, Bilbo Baggins is not a fictional hobbit. He's a very real, 24-year-old cob who has been part of her life since she bought him as a youngster over 22 years ago after he was rescued by a friend as an unwanted 6 month old foal from a horse market. Angie gave the discarded 14.1hh coloured cob a home, backed him, schooled him, patched him up and nursed him through several serious scrapes, and rode him whenever she could between assignments working all over Europe as a consultant. Her much-loved cob had suffered mild breathing difficulties from time
