Whether you are looking in to getting a horse to stable livery in Telford, or you are a seasoned local horse rider, you will know that taking good car of your horse and mucking them out go hand-in-hand with horse riding.

When you keep your horse in a stable, you need to use quality bedding and that means that it shouldn’t be damp, dusty, mouldy or absorb urine.  If any of these factors exist, the health of your horse will suffer.  Good bedding offers a number of benefits:

  • Prevents injury
  • Encourages the horse to lie down
  • Prevents draughts
  • Provides warmth
  • Encourages horse to stale (urinate)
  • Provides comfort for the horse
  • Prevents jarring to the feet and legs
  • Cleanliness

Woody Wood Products stock a good range equestrian bedding that is of good quality, absorbent, dry, soft and easy to dispose of.  Delivering locally for free on all pallet orders under 20 miles, the knowledgeable team can also give you their expert advice.

In addition to great bedding, it is also important that you carry out regular mucking out in order to reduce any adverse health effects.  Usually carried out first thing in the morning, you will need a variety of tools to help you including a Wheelbarrow, Strong broom, Four-pronged pitchfork, Shovel, Shavings fork (if using shavings/pellets) and gloves to protect your hands.   Mucking out is essential for removing the wet and soiled areas ready for the new bedding to be laid.
