HAYGAIN launches steamer for single horse owner

one steam

HAYGAIN has launched a new steamer for the single horse owner.

The company has spent the last year researching and developing the HG-ONE.

Created to feed one horse it will hold up to 8kg of forage either in a hay net or compact wedges.

Forage is steamed in 60 minutes using a specially designed 1500W steam generator. This has a water capacity of 2.5 litres, which is sufficient for one steaming cycle.

The lid is double skinned for strength and thermal efficiency and has been designed with pockets to allow the condensation to fall back evenly onto the hay.

“The HG-ONE is ideal for everyday use on the yard and is great to take to shows due to its lightweight and compact design,” said a company spokesman.

The new product costs £495. For more information visit: www.haygain.com

Kate Negus Saddlery has added the elastic grackle to its range of specialised nosebands.

Designed with event rider Kitty King the new noseband combines English leather with special elastic and sheepskin padding where the straps cross on the nose.

“The elastic grackle is perfect for horses that need the action of a grackle, but don’t like the restriction of a leather noseband,” said Kitty.

The noseband is available in black and chestnut in cob and full sizes. It can be used with a regular headpiece or with Kate Negus’ Grand Prix version, which features integral noseband hangers.

Prices start at £50.
