Dust free large flake shavings made specially for horses

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.

BEDMAX Equine Health Survey 2018

November 21 was World COPD Day. Every respiratory health organisation around the world is supporting this flagship day to help draw attention to one of the biggest and least recognised health threats that affects millions of people all over the planet. Here at BEDMAX, we think this is also an unmissable opportunity to highlight the parallels between the scale and severity of the respiratory threat that affects both humans and horses.

The 2018 Bedmax Equine Survey results are available now!

The results from the 2018 BEDMAX Equine Health Survey have underlined that a large proportion of UK horse owners face two major problems trying to keep their horses healthy in their stables during the winter months – respiratory illness and hoof disease. Nearly 40% of the 908 respondents reported that the horses they cared for had suffered a health problem that had required veterinary treatment or time off being ridden, or both, during the previous six winter months.

2018 Equine Health Survey Results confirm BIG stable threats to horses

The results from our 2018 Equine Health Survey have demonstrated very clearly that UK horse owners face some major problems trying to keep their horses healthy in their stables. Over 40% of more than 900 owners who responded told us their horses had suffered health problems that required veterinary treatment and/or rest during the six winter months - the months when the majority of horses in the UK spend more than 12 hours out of every 24 in their stables.
