NATURAL, SOFT, SPRINGY STRAW
up to 3x MORE ABSORBENT THAN SHAVINGS, 2x WOOD PELLETS
PelletBeds® are a range of Premium Soft Pellet Bedding ‘grown’ in the UK from natural, sustainable British Straw and Miscanthus.
PelletBeds are made with the horses welfare in mind, being the only pellet bedding to use long, soft, springy fibres which minimises stable dust and helps keeps hoofs healthy. They 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 ‘fuel’ pellets, they are soft so do not require watering before use. The used bedding will 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 require carbon intensive drying and transport processes.
Unlike recycled wood or chopped straw ‘dust’ pellets PelletBeds are made specifically for bedding from 100% natural ‘virgin’ straw containing no additives.
We can offer recycled paper packaging to help reduce waste.
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 quantities from 2 to 65 x 15 kg in recyclable paper or plastic bags as well as 500kg, 750kg and 1000kg plastic bulk bags.

OUR 'PRO' RANGE OUTPERFORMS ALL OTHER BEDDING
Established nearly 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 £4.57+v, with 1000kg pallets from £266.66+v, including FREE delivery to most of the GB.
OUR 'PRO' RANGE OUTPERFORMS ALL OTHER BEDDING
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 extensive watering, further increasing there absorbency over wood pellets, which are made hard and require ‘water activation’ 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 which is a sustainable residues from crop production. All our straw is sourced locally….within 5 miles of our processing plant…..and despatch directly to customers.
Straw is also naturally dry, so unlike wood bedding products does not require large amounts of energy to dry.
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….
