A new horse bedding company has been launched by South African event rider Stuart Fitzgerald.

White Horse Bedding is a new brand of pelletised wood fibre bedding, that is locally manufactured to provide value for money for customers.

Users add 3 or 4 litres of water per bag of bedding pellets, once spread in a stable, to create a “soft, fluffy but dense” product.

Users only need to add water the very first time they create a bed, after this initial dampening the horse itself provides the additional moisture required to keep the bedding in balance.

“White Horse Bedding is produced to provide a high quality, locally manufactured, value for money, eco friendly animal bedding,” said a company spokesman.

The manufacturers claim a bag of pelleted White Horse Bedding will last as long, if not longer, than a bale of shavings. They also say it will drastically reduce muck heap size and that a pallet of 100 bags take up less space than 30 bales of shavings.

The bedding is also packaged in recyclable bags.

White Horse Bedding will be available from feed and bedding merchants as well as online from Thursday 29 October.
