natural, soft, sustainable British Straw
up to 3x MORE ABSORBENT THAN SHAVINGS, 2x WOOD PELLETS
PelletBeds® are a range of Premium Soft Straw Pellet Bedding made specifically for bedding horses from natural, sustainable Wheat and Miscanthus straw all ‘grown’ and processed at our own UK factory.
PelletBeds are made with horse welfare, comfort and the environment in mind and we are proud to be the first Zero waste bedding company with all our bags being returnable, for free, to receive money off your next purchase.
Unlike wood ‘fuel’ pellets which are made from fine dust for better combustion, our straw pellet bedding is made using long, soft, springy straw fibres. This minimises stable dust and helps keeps hoofs healthy. PelletBeds are also the only bedding to receive a DEFRA approved, anti-bacterial treatment ‘Protek’ which helps keeps your horse protected from bacteria, viruses and fungi etc..
PelletBeds® have been independently verified as the MOST absorbent bedding available; (Bangor University 2013) being capable of absorbing up to 3x the capacity of wood shavings or over 2x wood pellets.
PelletBeds® are easy to use & long lasting, requiring half the time to maintain, while lasting twice as long. Unlike wood or straw ‘fuel’ pellets, they are soft so do not require soaking before use. The used bedding will also decompose quickly, ~10x faster than wood products, adding nutrients to the soil.
PelletBeds are made from sustainable, locally sourced British straw so do not require the destruction of forests; it takes 3 trees to make 1t of wood pellets which then require carbon intensive drying and transport processes.
Our own Warwickshire factory is ideally situated in the middle of the country and we offer FREE delivery, using small 7.5t trucks, throughout most of Great Britain.
PelletBeds are available in 15kg returnable, recyclable bags from £4.40 (+10p bag deposit & vat) as well as 500kg, 750kg and 1000kg returnable, recyclable bulk bags. 1000kg pallets start from £260.71 (+£5 bag deposit & vat) all prices include FREE delivery to most of GB.

soft, super absorbent, low dust equine bedding
Established over 20 years ago, we are the original and largest manufacturer of equine pellet bedding in the UK, using only locally sourced, fully traceable British Straw.
PelletBeds are unique and have been independently verified, by Bangor University, as the most absorbent bedding on the market. PelletBeds are also the only bedding to receive a Defra approved antibacterial treatment.
PelletBeds® have been developed to keep your horse healthy and comfortable. During our unique process, straw is chopped; dedusted, then steam sterilised & soft pelleted. The pellets are cooled, then finally before packaging receive a unique, Defra approved, anti-bacterial treatment ‘Protek‘ to help minimise stable bacteria & odours . Our pellet bedding regularly undergoes microbiological analysis to ensure it is in perfect condition prior to despatch.
Our products are sustainable and environmentally friendly, after use they will compost quickly (reducing disposal costs) without harming the soil.
PelletBeds will last much longer than traditional shavings, chopped straw or wood pellet bedding and with less time required to ‘muck out’, offer a healthy, cost effective solution to stabling horses.
Our 15kg bags start from only £5.30+ 10p returnable bag deposit, with 1000kg pallets from £314.98+ £5 returnable bag deposit including FREE delivery to most of the GB.
OUR EQUINE 'PRO' IS THE MOST ABSORBENT BEDDING ON THE MARKET
3x MORE ABSORBENT THAN SHAVINGS; 2x WOOD PELLETS
Our pellet bedding has been independently verified, by Bangor University, as the most absorbent bedding on the market. PelletBeds are also made soft so will open easily without soaking, further increasing there absorbency over wood ‘fuel’ pellets, which are made hard and require time consuming ‘soaking’ before use
LONG SPRINGY STRAW FIBRES
PelletBeds are made specifically for horses from long springy straw fibres which are on average ~ 10x larger than wood pellet particles.
As wood pellets are made for combustion they have to be made from small dust particles. The bsl ENplus A1 Wood Fuel Pellet standard requires that ‘95% of particles in wood pellets must be less than 2 mm….and 60% less than 1 mm….!!!!’) These fuel pellets are also made very hard (for combustion and transport reasons) so require excessive watering to open. They may also contain additives which are harmful to horses.
We manufacture all our pellets at our own UK production facility, shipping directly to consumers. This insures we can constantly monitor our pellet quality and minimise dust created through handling.
See our “How To Use’ page to see how we can make your job of mucking out a whole lot easier.
REQUIRES LESS WATERING

LOCALLY GROWN SUSTAINABLE BRITISH STRAW
SUSTAINABLE BRITISH STRAW
We care about the environment.
PelletBeds are made from Natural British Straw and Miscanthus which is sourced locally to minimise transport, then processed efficiently, before being despatched directly to you.
We are the first bedding company to offer Zero waste with all our bags reusable and returnable for free to receive money off your next purchase.
As straw is a sustainable residues from annual crop production it does not require the destruction of forests and as is also naturally dry it does not require excessive energy to dry before being processed.
Straw is completely carbon neutral over a year; the carbon emitted as the previous years crop bio-degrades, being reabsorbed annually.
Trees in comparison require over 20 years to grow and reabsorb the carbon emitted when one is cut down for bedding….
We believe trees are a valuable environmental resource which have to be managed carefully. The UK has only 13% tree cover compared to a European average of 46% and currently over 88% of the wood used in the UK has to imported (Worlds 2nd largest)…..this is clearly unsustainable….
