We offer a range of wood pellets which are suitable for the use of horse stable bedding. Using wood pellets for horse bedding is a very economical option as over time you will use far less than you would with other bedding materials.

There are many options available for horse bedding. Wood pellets however provide an excellent alternative to straw or shavings. It is easy to lay, provide excellent support for your horse and it’s quick to muck out. Pellets are extremely absorbent (1 kg of pellets can absorb 3 litres of liquid) so any liquid waste will be quickly absorbed into the bedding, making it far more hygienic and healthier than straw or shavings. Our pellets are carefully produced from virgin pine softwood so produce very little dust and contain no bleach or additives, reducing any risk of allergies.

Lay the bags down flat on the stable floor in two even rows. A 4m by 3m stable with rubber matting will require approximately 6-10 bags of pellets.

Carefully cut a cross slit in all the bags and fold back the plastic. To ‘activate’ the pellets, each bag will require 4-5 litres of water – Slowly pour the water into the bag opening and leave the pellets to swell slightly. The pellets should not dissipate entirely.

Within 15-20 minutes, the pellets will have absorbed all the water and expanded to around three times their original size.

Empty the bedding out onto the stable floor. The pellets will have transformed into a soft, fluffy but dense bed, and there should be some pellets that have not broken down.

With a fork and rake, spread the bedding out evenly into the desired area and make up any banks.

 Mucking out

Remove solids and completely saturated patches daily.


One to two bags of pellets per week will be a sufficient quantity to replenish lost bedding. These pellets do not need to be activated again and can be seeded evenly across the existing bed.
