BEDMAX shavings are made from predominantly pine timber because there is extensive scientific evidence that pine may help safeguard your horses health and welfare in the stable. It adds an extra dimension of natural hygienic protection in the stable but without costing any extra.

Full bedding should require 5 - 6 bags but to top up only 1 - 2 per week depending on stable requirements. BEDMAX also provides support for hooves and cushions hocks and joitns.
